  1. King Betta not eating! Help!

    Betta Fish Care
    **please help** I got my king Beta fish one week ago and he has not eaten yet when I got him he was slightly bloated and I believe had worms because his poop was white so I've been treating his tank with general cure for the past few days but he is refusing to eat anything and I'm worried is...
  2. First "King" betta. Poor guy... what a survivor!

    Betta Pictures
    Yesterday, I lost my newest EE betta Legolas due to a faulty decoration leeching into the water. Well, out of death comes life. I have been watching this guy for the past three months (that's right, months) and he has amazingly survived despite being in the cup and being a King. He was extremely...
  3. Betta is upset at his reflection in the tank

    Betta Fish Care
    So yesterday I got a king betta, he is my first betta so I'm not sure if this behavior is normal. He can see his reflection in the walls of his tank, which is a standard 10 gallon. He has been flaring at them all day and acting generally upset. He has tried to attack the reflection a couple...
  4. King Betta

    Betta Fish Care
    My husband and I are discussing the possibility of getting a King betta in about a month, (after our two newest are done with quarantine) and I'm curious if they need extra care in comparison to regular bettas? How much do they eat, in your experience? Are they more susceptible to disease or...

  7. King Betta?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I'm slowly falling in love... Help! Does anyone know anything about these beasties?! How much room do they need as compared to a regular betta? Will they get along with other fish? (depending on personality of course). I'd never heard of King Bettas until I joined this forum, then I saw one...
  8. Is king betta care any different?

    Betta Fish Care
    I have an empty 20 gallon and I am thinking of getting a king betta. I always see them at my LFS and they interest me a lot. I do not see/hear much from other fishkeepers about them though. Does anyone else have a king? Is their care any different from other bettas (more space needed, more...
  9. Please help identify this illness!!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This is a king betta that we picked up almost two weeks ago. He is in a heated and filtered 5gal Fluval Edge tank. Yesterday we noticed that he was clamping his fins and hiding in his cave. I noticed a couple small spots on his side which first looked like ich. Today, the spots have become...
  10. New Betta: 'Pirate'

    Betta Pictures
    Wow, it's been ages since I've been on here. However, I can't keep away from the fish! O_O So just a re-cap of what happened: I had Dinq and then we moved cross-country with him and he was fine. I'm pretty sure he was just older by then and couldn't take the final move and neither could a few...
  11. Need a second set of eyes! Sick little king boy.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I adopted out a sick king from Petco. To me he did look like he was on his last threads so I took him in my arms and give him a warm tank so should he move on, he could in a warm environment. At first I thought it was dropsy, because had had a couple scales protruding, but it weren't all of...

  13. Every time I go to Petco I want another betta!

    Betta Chat
    So I went to Petco today and looked in the betta section. They had a beautiful violet king betta with a pink HM tail there and I wanted him so much! He swam to the front of his cup and watched me for the entire 5 minutes I stood in front of his cup. His face was light gray and it was so cute...
  14. Questions about my HM King I purchased from Petco (With some backstory)

    Betta Pictures
    Found this guy at Petco. He is a HM King and I'm not sure if he is a Mustard Gas or just a mutt. I named him Leviathan, because he decided he does not like sharing a tank with corydoras and because he is HUGE. He will be moved to a 5 gallon as soon as it finishes cycling... I just wanted to...

  16. King Bettas

    Betta Chat
    I saw a couple of them at petco when I went yesterday and they looked neat, although a bit dull colored (Probably from the stress of those tiny cups) Does anyone know how big they can get? Im leaning towards getting 1 for my 29 gallon since I only want one center fish in it and bettas are...
  17. Biggest betta ever.

    Betta Pictures
    My friend and I were at Petco and we found THIS MASSIVE BETTA. I wanted him so bad. He barely fit in their dinky little cups. (Sorry for the icky photo, I took it with my phone.) They called him a "halfmoon king". He was $20. If I still had my 10gal I would probably have bought him. Has...
  18. My fish has Ick, any tips?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My poor king Betta, I'm treating him like I would my cichlid (who has no signs of ick) with a heat treatment as well as the full recommended amount of aquarium salt since I normally only use 75% of the recommended amount. I don't want to use the Ick medication because Whenever I used it before...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi everyone, A couple of days ago I discovered a huge crack in my 10 G tank that was just too large to fix so I moved my king betta into a temp 1 G since it was the only spare bowl I could find. I was planning on getting another 10 G and splitting that into 2 so that I could house another king...
