  1. Betta Fish Care
    I just bought this betta fish 2 days ago, he/she is beautiful. I was told at the fish store that the betta was a male. I showed my friend pictures who keeps lots of fish and she said that it looked female. Please help, I can’t tell if my betta is male or female.

    Hi everyone, my boy Apollo has been extremely bloated for over 2 weeks. I’ve tried fasting him to no avail. I’m having trouble getting a clear picture of both sides of his stomach, but one side is a bit bigger so he looks kind of lopsided. He is acting completely normal and happy. He is swimming...
  3. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey everyone, so all of a sudden I noticed this white spot on my betta’s gill on one side. He also has a bloated belly. He was lethargic and hiding for a day or two, then after fasting him for a few days in case he was constipated, he is acting more normal and is active. However, he still has...
  4. Betta Fish Care
    Hi there, I posted on here awhile ago about my betta's back tail looking ripped and ragged worried it was fin rot. We deduced in that forum that he is most likely biting his tail. There are large chunks taken out, and it happens fast. I also only see the damage on his back tail and not his other...
  5. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, recently I noticed my betta's back tail looking ripped up and ragged, and I figured this could be caused by water quality and tank conditions. I had a brown algae problem that I have since fixed completely, and have regulated the pH and alkalinity levels religiously. I've been treating him...

    Is there a reason my betta hangs out by his bubble nest? Is he "protecting" it?

    I bought a male crowntail betta at Meijer. I have never seen a betta like him before. What kind of color morph is he? Is it rare?
  8. Betta Chat
    Hello, I bought what I was told was a female dragon Betta. It turns out it is a male (it started breeding with me female Betta in a community tank!). It is a huge Betta but doesn't have the large tail like male Bettas normally have. Can anyone help identify what type of Betta he is? I've...
  9. Betta Fish Care
    Hey, I'm totally new to the hobby and im worried about my new betta boy, Raphael. He's been in my tank for over a week now and has been doing really well. I'll leave all my specs below, but im using him to fish in cycle with great care. I read up on the nitrogen cycle for weeks and prepared...

    Anyone know what my betta is? I bought him from petsmart (i know bad choice) but he was really healthy and i LOVED his white color. He seems to have a bit of shiny goldish scales around his head. As for his fins, I cant identify what he could be. Also excuse his fin tearing im not sure why its...

    I have a small male betta and a mystery snail in a planted 5 gallon tank. I had cycled the planted tank with a bacteria starter for 4 weeks before adding the betta and snail. The betta and snail have been good buddies for just over 3 months and I’ve never had an issue with ammonia, nitrate...
  12. Wild Betta Forum
    Hey everyone! I'm new here. Early today I purchased a betta fish from the lfs that was mislabelled for $5 (they had him with the females even though he had made a bubble nest in his bowl). He looks nothing like the other betta splendens they carry and to me he looks like he might be a betta...

    Hi! I just purchased a Fluval Edge 6 gallon tank yesterday and I have began a fish-less cycle using ammonia. I plan to purchase a male betta once complete... can I provide him with any tank makes? I originally planned for something like a Kuhli Loach or Cardinal Tetras.. but fear the tank is...
  16. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey-- I am interested to know how all of you out there feed your male betta while he is tending the eggs, or if you don't feed him at all. Some say if you feed him, he will be used to food and start to eat the eggs, and others say if you don't feed him he will get hungry and start to eat the...
  17. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am in the process of re-scaping and stocking my Fluval Spec III after my male betta who was living in it passed away. I was thinking of getting a new male betta, but I am curious about what other options I may have for such a small tank that would allow me to house more than 1 fish in it, if...
  18. New Member Introductions
    I've had bettas as a kid, but I always kept them in a single gallon bowl. After having a betta last year that developed fit rot, I set up a 5 gallon tank for him, but then the tablets I used to treat the fit rot killed him! But not to be sad, I mourned him and soon purchased a new betta. My...
  19. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    2 days ago I noticed my dragon scale male has clamped fins. He's still active and is eating fine. I did a partial water change yesterday to see if that would help. He built a new bubble nest over night, but there's still no change in his fins. Could this be an indication of an illness? What can...
