    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...

    Does anyone have any photo references of what betta poo looks like? I've honestly never seen my fish poo before, and am not really sure what it looks like. I assume he does it at some point because he's not bloated. I think it just blends in with the gravel I have. I'm getting a red cherry...

    Hi, I had my betta with a yellow mystery snail, and they were living in harmony. This is my work tank, so I leave it over the weekend. I was sick on monday, and was away from my tank for 3 days. At some point my snail died (I don't know why) and my betta ate it... a huge amount of it. There...

    Not really an emergency, since he's still acting and looking normal. Moby has been eating enthusiastically, though he rejected pellets for flakes, oddly enough. He pooped the first few days I had him, but then a couple days ago he had this really big one, like bigger than I thought a fish as...

    I need to know if this is healthy poop from my male betta. He eats on a regularly basis, he some what of an active fish. He seems to be fine overall.

    Hi everyone. I rescued my baby betta, Charli, from Petco. I fairly sure she's female. She's striped and has a white ova spot on her belly between front and rear fins. I changed her food from flake to pellet and noticed her poop color has changed. Sometimes it's brown and sometimes it's...

    When I first got my betta, I tried making him flare with fish videos and pictures but he never reacted. Then, I finally found a pocket mirror laying around and he flares at his own reflection. It's just, everytime he flares, well... He poops. At the most, two come out of him but he never...

    I noticed this a couple hours ago on my boy, Finn. There's this whitish thing hanging from his left gill. I don't see it on the right. I read from other forums it can just be fecal matter? Is that what this looks like, or should I be worried about gill inflammation, torn gill, or maybe...
  12. Planted Betta Tanks
    Hi, I have two tanks (5.5 and 2.6 gallons). I have a gravel substrate and these plants: anubias mint charlie brazillian pennywort water sprite After trying so many different plants that weren't aquatic (not that I'm bitter, Petco) I ordered these online. Since I don't have an eco complete...

    This may sound like a totally amateur question, but what does betta poop look like? I mean, I've seen stuff floating around in the bowls when I go to do water changes but does anyone have pictures or....? A bit weird but I'm curious. :oops:

    So we just put Handsome Jack in his tank after a water change, and about 5 minutes later we went to check on him and he had something huge hanging out of him. Seriously massive. It looked like a big brown chunk of dirt on a brown string hanging out of him. He was swimming frantically and flaring...

    My Male betta I feed my male 7 small betta pellets every day. He eats 4 in the morning and 3 at night. Every 5 days he gets 3 pellets in the morning and 3 blood worms at night. I feed him every day because I feel really bad about starving them for a day and he is battling fin rot so I don't...

    The title of the thread says it all. I looked at Triangle tonight and noticed this thing hanging off of him between the ventral and anal fins. Is that poop? I've actually never seen my guy poop before, and I sort of thought that it'd come out behind the anal fin, though I've recently learned...

    One of my recent imports I've kept in QT has white poop. She didn't when she first got here, and has been in the same tank the whole time. The poops are not white and stringy, they look like regular poops but just white. Ie kind of lumpy and irregular - lol sorry this is gross. Anyway, she's...
