  5. Do you feed the male betta fish while he is tending the eggs?

    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...

    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.

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    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...
  8. Clamped fins?

    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...

    Betta Pictures
    I just got this Betta today (nameless for now because I'm tossing up between Andre or Fabio). In a way I kind of rescued him? He was in a shelf set up at the pet shop where his tank got most of the off run from the other tanks, plus his tail was often getting sucked into the filter. His tank was...

    I've had my Betta since the 28th of December of 2015. He's always had a silver spot on the top oh his back area that goes to both sides. Recently, I've felt like he's gotten more of a silver hue.

    I don't have a photo of him handy at the moment. But I'm new owner of my first betta. He's a cool little guy I got him from petco a few months ago. His body is a pinkish white, and his tail turns into pink & red. Looking at photos on google he doesn't look like the all. I know google...

  15. Sick betta

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello all. I seem to have a sick betta. He eats normally, swims the same as usual. Honestly, nothing seems to be wrong with him other than what is appearing on his body, which has me very confused. I've been researching this for days and I can't find any solution. He is normally a white betta...
