  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About two weeks ago I washed my Betta's fish tank. Ever since then, he has been lethargic and not swimming as much as he used to. Most of the day and night, he rests at the bottom of the tank. This recent tank washing was probably more traumatic than the past, as I had to remove him from the...

    Does it seem normal that Samson has just started sleeping on the bottom of the tank? He has a terra cotta pot that lays sideways in his tank and he keeps resting practically underneath it, he wedges himself under the pot and lays there.

    My best friend moved away about a month ago and I inherited her betta, Bluey. He was already a few months old with her and she got him at Pet Club earlier this year... so I don't think he is more than 6 months old. Two nights ago, I heard a bit of crash while I was asleep. I had ear plugs on...

    Recently I have watched some videos about water can be affected by constant emotion energy released by humans from Dr. Emoto's experiment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAvzsjcBtx8 This makes me think that my emotions can affect the water that my betta fish is staying, which will affect my...

    I'm new to bettas. I got mine a few days ago and everything has been going swimmingly. However, the past few nights I've noticed that he lays on the bottom of the tank and sort of "breathes" heavily for long periods at a time. Only after getting his attention does he get up and start swimming...

    I am new to the Betta world. I'm an adult too, and when I was a child I never had one of these fish because I thought they were like pirahna and mean. I never liked mean creatures. So, I've had fish, just not these fish. So, what I'm wondering, since I've never heard of it until online...
