  1. Betta Fish Care
    My Betta fish, Gustav, has been pooping in small amounts. They aren't solid brown so I am assuming he has constipation. I've been doing the Epsom salt method for a few days now in attempts to reduce his bloat. I was wondering, will peas help with constipation? I would like to hear your personal...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! So for a few weeks or more i have not seen poop while cleaning out his tank at all. At first i didn't think anything of it, but now i'm worried. He does not look bloated he looks pretty normal. I look at him from every way possible and he looks fine. I also heard feeding cooked frozen...

  7. Betta Fish Care
    Quick question! Are peas very bad for betta fish? I've been treating my fish with blanched pea halves & quarters, & it has been working well with his belly! I don't have any live daphnia nearby, but I would love to! I know that helps with bloating... So, back to the real ? --- I read somewhere...
