  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This is my first betta fish, Hector, and I'm really worried that he's sick: this morning at around 7am I noticed two very small fuzzy-ish looking dots (each around the size of a needle eye or smaller) on the right side of his anal fin. They're a little hard to see in the photos, sorry -- I'll...

    Hi! I'm new to caring for betta fish as well as bettafish.com. My only real experience with fish in general originates when I was a lot younger when I had my fair share of goldfish. Now I'm 19 and live in a college dorm and I thought having something to care for would really liven things up...

    Hi! I just purchased a 2.5 gallon tank for my new betta fish. Double Bowl 2.5 Aquarium Kit - Elive (I'm only using the outside bowl not the small one inside) Everything was going perfectly until I turned the filter system on. He gets pushed around and seems to get caught in the filter input...

  5. Betta Chat

    I got a male veil tail betta a week ago. I had him in a 2.5 gallon tank until he got rid of fin rot, then I put him in with 3 African Dwarf Frogs. He ate in the 2.5 gallon (omega one pellets), but this morning, he won't eat and seems to be fighting his reflection a lot. He did that in the 2.5...
