    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?

    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...

    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...

    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...
  10. 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. 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...
  12. 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...

    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...

    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 also flashed light on him and noticed he has this goldfish glitter under his chin(?) area and his...

    I had a small log in my tank I got from Amazon. The log actually scraped my fish's side and took off a few tail fins. He is still slowly recovering from his injuries..poor guy. It's out of my tank but my fish seemed to love it. I now only have a betta hammock and a silk plant in the tank. He...
  17. Betta Fish Care
    Hi there, I'm very new to betta keeping, and I have some questions about my routine for my 5 gallon betta tank. If my water changes are sufficient and if my feeding schedule is good. Right now I feed my male betta, Kiro, 3 Betta Bio Gold pellets in the morning and 3 more at night. I swap...

    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 photos..at all. I know google...

    Hi all! I've had my rosetail betta for about a month and a half now. I purchased him with a black mystery snail who sadly just died. The water is heated to about 78-80 degrees, with gravel, betta hammock and a new live plant. (he before had a silk plant). I cleaned my tank and let my betta...

    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...
