  1. Dorsal fin not faring

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I recently purchased a vailtail betta. I have noticed that he has not fared his fin at all. Is he still adjusting or could he be sick. He is in a 3 gallon tank with a filter and heater and has been eating. Any input is appreciated!

    ]Hey, I got a new red veiltail betta today. He looks and acts perfectly healthy, kinda like a puppy being brought home for the first time. But there is one thing that is bothering me.

    Betta Pictures
    I got this little boy a week or two ago, to replace an older betta that'd passed just prior. He's supposedly a 'super delta' type betta? He's very curious about my phone's camera and will swim right up to the glass, making it hard for me to get a picture of his fins. But he also never really...

    Depressed/Stressed Betta or something else? Hey, My Betta, Prince Peach, is not well. I got him April 29th, and he's had a very strong and agressive personality for the most part.

  8. Help with Velvet?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I'm about 99.9% sure Fishy has velvet. He's pale, but looks like he has that gold dust sprinkled on him, and he's been a bit more twitchy than usual. I noticed him losing colour a few days ago, and yesterday realized the goldish tint on him. I've read about using aquarium salts to treat this, as...
