  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So he's not dead yet. I opened the tank and he swam away from my hand, but he doesn't look good at all. He's moving as little as possible, ignored food, and his color just looks really bad. I've turned off the filter so he doesn't have to work against any water current. What do I do??? I...

    Hi we have two bettas in separate identical 2.5 tanks with aerators, one has become very listless, doesn't eat, and stays on the bottom of the tank...the water in that tank seems to have a reddish tinge to it--if so, don't know why. I did a 50% change last night...we'll see how things go...
  3. Betta Fish Care
    Hello I recently got a lovely crowntail Betta and added him to my cycled tank that already contains a small group of Harlequin Rasboras. The tank has a lot of plants and some driftwood with a lot of hidey crevices for him. The problem is he doesn't move a lot, he either spends his time looking...

    Hi all, My poor Sassy seems to be in sad shape very suddenly. She was doing completely fine yesterday, zipping everywhere as happy as could be. This morning, when I woke up to feed her, she was sitting in her favorite purple plant barely moving. I looked at her closer and found this grayish...
  5. Meet the Betta Keepers
    A year ago, I was given one of those little betta bowls at a dinner, and I took him home... and I went to get a tank... now this first guy did not make it, probably some version of new tank syndrome, although I was careful, but by that time I got a new one (see pic), Mr My Jesus Fish II, or Mr...

  8. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I am sitting a friend's betta fish over the summer, and I have grown quite attached to him. Unfortunately, I think she (the friend) may have been somewhat misinformed about how I should take care of him, as he seems to be getting sick and much of the information I found online leads me to...

    I can't find any info on what's going on with my little guy anywhere, and I'm desperate for help. I've had Phineas for a little over 8 months now. He was teeny tiny when I first got him, but he grew really well and has always been an active guy until lately. Over the past week, he hasn't been...
  10. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta Euphrates has been having, say, issues, lately. He used to eat without a problem, but now whenever he manages to eat something, he seems to choke on it, as in his gills won't close in, and he swims erratically for a minute or two before sinking to the bottom of the tank and breathing...

    I inherited my bettas from a fellow co-worker when she had to move and could not take her fish with her. I've had them for about 5 months and have no idea how long she had them. Carmen my female (I think) betta is a usually active, friendly and hungry fish. When I got to work today she...
