  1. M Red/Purple DoubleTail x F Blue Halfmoon

    Betta Spawn Logs
    Hello, This was my first time spawning bettas and the goal was to see what colors I would get if I mixed a purple-red male with a blue female. These were common petstore bettas which made this experience all the more fun- I had NO IDEA what color combinations I was really going to get! :smile2...
  2. What kind of betta do I have??

    Betta Fish Care
    I got my female betta in October. She was in a cup labeled "baby girl" at Petco. I was just wondering if someone could help me figure out what kind of type she is:roll: Any help is appreciated. She has an amazing personality and adores me almost as much as I adore her. She is reddish purple with...

  4. Questions about pH

    Betta Fish Care
    I know people say not to mess with pH, but my tap water is very high. I'm talking around 8.4 high. My betta always stresses after water changes and I noticed as i was pouring out my tank pH test into the sink that the vial water turned blue as it hit the tap water, so i did a tap water test...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I found yesterday when I was cleaning my fish's tank that she is getting white and purple scales. When I got her she had just a pretty baby-pink color with a little bit of purple around her fins. Housing It's not technically a tank (glass candy jar) but I think it's around a Gallon. It's the...

  7. My beta, Mike

    Betta Pictures
    Hi guys - this is my Betta... Just want to know what you think. Does he look healthy? His fins are always down, never up. Perhaps its the type of specie he is? Also how do I tell if it's male of female in general?
  8. My crowntail beta is changing colors and I don't know if it's bad or good

    Betta Fish Care
    I've been reading about this on google and it appears that usually when their colors turn lighter its a bad thing? I just got my betta and I probably should have done a little more planning. The person working at the Walmart I bought him at didn't know anything about anything so I had no idea it...

    Hi there everyone! The itch to have a fish came over me a few days ago while cleaning out closets for spring cleaning and stumbling over an empty 10G tank I had forgotten about. Last night we went into Petco and came out with this guy who we have dubbed 'Talon'. He was unsure of all this new...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello, everyone. This is my first post on the forum. I made this account just minutes ago. Anyway, here is the story: Four months ago, I was given one of those fish hotel tanks as a gift. It's not very big. I checked it out at the store's website, and it turns out that it was 3.3L, which is...

  13. Lucky/rare find or not? My new betta

    Betta Pictures
    I got a new betta yesterday, was not planning on it but my mom was with me at a pet store we were checking out and noticed this guy. He was on the top shelf with the more expensive bettas marked $14.99 and $25.99 but he had no price. He looked a lot more exotic than the others, so we asked...
