    Betta Fish Care
    Hello! I recently got my male betta fish after seeing how cute my friend's was. She told me that he'd be okay in a one gallon glass bowl.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Is this normal Betta behavior? He darts up and down the tank from time to time, usually wham he sees me. (He's sluggish the rest of the time) He also got silver under his mouth and around his gills. Even his eves got a bit cloudy in one part. The silver seemed to fade a little (very little...
