    Hello, everyone! I'm Katelin, I'm 22 and from Minnesota. I recently got a new Koi Betta, named Magikarp, from an actual breeder rather than a pet store, like my previous betas have been. Despite the fact he was shipped, I notice he is so much healthier and active right off the bat. I'm...

    I just couldn't help myself! I instantly fell in love with this fish and begged my mom to buy him. We had a spare tank and heater and we are currently ordering a filter from online. Also, what type of tail does he have? Is he a halfmoon? It's hard to tell because his tail is tattered a...

    I just got a new halfmoon from petsmart today. He was very active in his cup while bringing him home and while acclimating. However once I put him in his new tank he hasn't been moving much. At first he randomly darted a few times and then decided to hide behind his filter. He doesn't have...

    Yes, after all the work on the tank I bought a pretty little guy on Ebay. This is the photo from the seller, hopefully the little guy will look like this, but I'll love him even if he doesn't because he's my first baby! He's coming the day after tomorrow!

    Sorry about the length of this, I just want to be thorough about everything. I've bolded the important questions for easier reading. And to start, I've created this thread because I've now read through dozens of others on a lot of different sites and everything I've read is so situation based...

    I've had my red veil tail for 2 weeks now and I think he might have fin rot. He's my first betta though, so I'm really uncertain. I haven't noticed any black on his fins and he's not behaving any differently, I just want to make sure. The first picture is him when I got him and the next 2 are...

    I got my new Betta fish, Theodore (the one in my picture), yesterday. Aside from the light blue and white, he had some reddish-brown colouring on his head and a spot on his dorsal fin. When I put him in the tank, they got brighter. Is this anything to be worried about? I'm not really sure if...
