    Damon (HM Betta) hasn't been eating much at all and I believe it is stress related. Can stress cause illness in bettas? I have him in a divided 10 gallon tank with another betta bought the same day at the same store. The other fish Stefan is doing amazing so I really hope there's no illness he...

It is a 5 gallon tank and gets regular 20% water change. His tank mates are 2 ghost shrimps and there is 3 large Marimo moss balls in the tank and that's...

    Alphonsis is quite old so I tend to lean on the side of caution with him. I get nervous when possible health issues arise and I'm wondering if I should take action at this point. I usually cyphon his poops out of his substrate every couple days and I've noticed that he's not pooping anymore. I...

    I got my crowntail male betta fish about 3 weeks ago from Petco. Ever since after the first day, he looked extremely bloated from gulping air and hyperventilating - which he kept doing since I put him in my new tank. I thought it was maybe from the stress of the transport from the store to my...
