    Hi guys, I’ve had this male betta for over a month now and he still glass surfs now and again and today i noticed his tail has big chunks missing on the ends :( what is causing him to do this? I have him set up in a 6 gallon tank with 2 large silk plants with big leaves and a soft rock cave...

    I have 5 neon tetras and this betta. This morning I noticed it looks like the bettas fins are almost singed on the bottom and the top fin looks odd. I have a small filter but don’t think that did it. Could this be from the tetras? What should I do?

    Hello! Would like advise to whether I should pull this betta or not. The sorority has only been together 3 days or so. She definitely has some decent sized fin nips and was being bullied the first couple days and I was about to pull her, but then today I actually saw her flaring when aggressed...

    I've got two bettas currently housed in a Betta Bow 2.5 http://www.aqueonproducts.com/products/betta-bow-25.htm Both of them are males, a red crowntail, and a blue delta tail. My red crowntail has always been really hyper, and aggressive. My blue delta tail is a lot more laid back, and mellow...

    So I have a small sorority of bettas in a 15 gallon tank; my smallest girl is being nipped relentlessly (Freddie). Because I have other fish in the tank, is it potentially safe to take Freddie out for a week or so to grow back her fins, or should I not even risk having two female bettas together?

    My beautiful blue veiltail seems to have a badly torn tail fin. This happened some time between 3 and 6 o'clock today, very sudden! In fact, I had noted today that his fin rot seemed to be completely healed, then only hours later, his tail fin is shredded. Nothing new had been added to his tank...

    I am a first time betta breeder. I have a 10 G tank I put the male in and I put the female in a glass chimney. They got along well rubbing up against the glass and she was doing the head down display etc. After several days I let her out of the chimney and watched them for several hours for...
