    My betta fish was moved into his new tank after being in a cup from the pet store. I’ve noticed that he’s becoming bloated.

    I just got this boy in and I've been monitoring his behaviors and appearance for about 4 days. At first I never noticed this on the little guy because his body seemed clean and he is a very active and happy Betta.

    Hello My betta fish Steven Rodgers has been having a pretty rough last two months. In December he got a pretty bad case of fin rot that I treated with T.C tetracycline.

    I bought Nico in January as a baby betta fish, so she (I'm pretty sure she's a girl, the downside of choosing a gender specific name) is just about nine months old.

After he died, I did the 1:20 bleach sanitation of the 10 gallon tank, replaced the filter cartridges, gravel, and plants. I cycled the tank, and went out and bought a new betta. My new betta was very...
