    Hello, My significant other got a new female betta tonight (his first betta!) because he was jealous of Petri!!! LOL Anyways.. what should he name her? We’re looking for suggestions from SpongeBob as she has those themed accessories in her tank and she’s bright yellow in the sunlight. Thank you!

    Hello again, Petrie's mom here. The temperatures in AZ are rapidly changing and I'm trying to combat all the natural elements that would bug my betta LOL. He's sitting in a 1.5 gallon tank with real plants and a new addition of a flat heater (mini 15 W) right beside my window for natural light...

    Hello, I'm new to the community but have browsed the forums years back when I got my first childhood betta. I'm posting today to tell you about my betta fish Petrie. (Yes, this is a Land Before Time reference!) I was at the Arizona State Fair yesterday (10/21) and won Petrie in a game where you...

    I bought a betta today, and I've noticed that the betta is gasping for air on one side and breathing normally on the other side. Is this normal? I'm currently acclimating him, and he's in 50% water from the cup he came in and 50% tank water right now. Other than this, he seems healthy and active.

    Hey hey So we got our betta today, we’re so happy with him:) Just one thing…I assume it’s just because he’s getting used to this new environment but he keeps glass surfing in the back, just back and forth constantly. He definitely comes up to see us but other than that 90% of the he glass...

    Hi everyone! So my boyfriend and I are going to go buy a new lil friend tomorrow, our tank is fully set up and ready to go so we’re excited! I just wanted to ask, what are some things to look for when picking out a betta? Health-wise, appearance-wise, etc. We’re hoping to buy from our LFS but...

    Hi everyone! I recently adopted a new betta! His name is Santino - Sonny for short! He is named after the eldest Corleone son in The Godfather as his predecessor (may he Swim in Peace) was named Vito. He was sold as an “elephant ear”and I do LOVE how fast his little fins move! He has been...

    Hi all! I adopted my first betta 8 days ago. Three days ago I noticed a small, white spot above his eye. It doesn’t appear to be fuzzy, but I’m not entirely sure. He is still eating a normal amount and is very energetic, but I’m not sure if his demeanor has changed since I’ve had him such a...

    Hello! Name's Amy. I'm a beginner and I just brought home my first betta fish yesterday only to find him pacing the glass of his tank for hours today. I cycled my tank for weeks beforehand and tested the water regularly so I don't know what could be causing his stress! I have a bunch of plants...

    I adopted a sick betta yesterday and he is experiencing swollen lips and a bump on his forehead. I treated immediately with Lifeguard and followed up with another dose today. When he came home, his lips were crusty yellow and today, they are not. The bump though has grown and looks yellow...

    Hi! I am planning on getting another betta in about a week or two. I am worried that if I get my betta the day the store gets them that the transfer to my house could kill it. Is this a problem I should worry about, and if so if I see a betta I like the day they get their shipment should I ask...

    I am getting a new betta soon and already have the tank cycled and ready to go. One thing that I am a little confused about, however, is the idea of quarantining the new fish. I’ve read many articles on the importance of quarantining, but they all site keeping the existing plants and animals in...

    I am totally new with all the raising a healthy betta fish stuff. I got him a week ago as a birthday present. And I just did a partial water change for him since the ammonia and the nitrite level was 0.25. However as I did the test again for the new water, the ammonia level was still the same...

    He was absolutely an impulse buy yesterday. I initially had him in my old 2.5 with some plastic plants but I was so unhappy with the artificial landscape that I went and bought live plants today (even though I was already broke to begin with lmao). From the minute I introduced him into his new...

    Hello! I've had this betta for almost a week and he does this strange thing where he will excitedly eat a pellet and then spit it out, and sometimes try to eat it again. This results in him rarely eating or eating sunken pellets off the bottom much later. I am attempting to feed him Omega...
