  1. Dying betta fish but he is eating

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have this betta fish since last winter, and today he seems really stressed, he swims if i move the tank but after that he just lays on the side, floating. His color is normal as usual, he is still eating and he seems interesting in eating. I think the problem is ammonia, because his tank is 1...

  3. High nitrites for a whole week >:l

    Betta Fish Care
    Okay, I know that within a cycle its natural to have a nitrite spike but is it natural to have it for a whole week and just cant seem to get it down?! I've been thinking of using some plants to help me lower them but that might just completely crash my cycle. I have a 3.5 gal and doing fish in...
  4. Goodbye Poseidon

    Betta Memorials
    So about a month ago Poseidon got side bumps and this under bump thing, I nursed him back, and he lost the bump underneath, but still had the side bumps, a few days ago his under bump came back, so I put him back in his hospital tank, I went to go change the water, and sadly he was gone. I...
  5. Extremely SICK BETTA

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Okay, guys, I'm freaking out! For the past month my Crowntail Walter has been losing color and rotting. I've tried several of the finrot cures I've found online. He's also been looking super full all the time. His stomach is constantly protruding, even though I follow a strict diet where I...
  6. Planted snail problem

    Planted Betta Tanks
    So, I have caught 4 snails that had been traveled into my tank via plants. I took them out, and placed them in to a small fish bowl I had with some water. I have read a long time ago, you have to kill the snails before dumping them down a toilet, or in the garbage. And I was considering boiling...
  7. Sick fishy:(

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I bought my red betta fish three years ago. Earlier this year, he started turning white. By November 2014, he was completely white/transparent, meaning that I could see everything inside him! A couple days ago, my beta fish died, and i would like to know if it was a sickness or if its common or...
  8. SIP Ben...

    Betta Memorials
    So yesterday (Sunday) lunch time, I actually witnessed my Ben dying, I didn't realize at first that I had watched him die but I was too late, after I watched him die which I thought was just him spazzing out I quickly got his hospital tank all ready for him and went to scoop him out to find him...
  9. Lethargic and little bloated - heavy pics

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I got Beni from Petco 2 and half weeks ago. He was doing great until yesterday. He started acting lethargic and today he has been hanging out at the bottom of the tank and fins are clamped. He looks a tad bloated I don't see any signs of stress but most of his body is black so hard to...
  10. Hole in head?! Help!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This is Vladimir. I've had him for almost 2 months now but for the past few days he's been very lethargic but his appetite has been normal. I really hope this thin on his head is nothing serious but it looks like some sort of hole to me! I'm horrified, I don't want my Vladimir to pass away on...
  11. Betta community failed :(

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi, today I tried to start a betta community with my male betta, Orestes. I had him in the Aqueon half gallon tank for less than a week and wanted to upgrade cuz I thought that was too small. I got a 10 gallon and wanted to start a community so after I set everything up I brought home 7...
  12. Zeus seems... blue.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About a week or two ago, I bought a new betta fish from my local Walmart. When I first put him in the tank (a five gallon, new, filtered), he was happy and would swim around and enjoy the space, but as time went by, he grew more and more lethargic. I figured it was because the tank was not...
  13. Oh sharky....

    Betta Memorials
    My little boy sharky passed away sometime this morning.. Im not sure how he passed away, it could have been the sudden burst of cold we had last night (Canadian weather is not nice) even though he had his heater and a freshly cleaned tank, my little guy didnt make it. The sun is now shining on...
  14. Another 'Convincing My Parents' Thread...

    Betta Chat
    I've been holding back on making a thread about convincing my mother to get a betta because I feel like they annoy people and might give them the wrong impression on me right off the bat, being my first post ever on this forum, but it needs to be done so here I am. :demented: My 4 year old...
  15. Bettas and their little miracles

    Betta Chat
    Has this ever happened to anyone before? I have this baby betta. I was really sad today because I was dealing with a breakup from a horrid guy who made me look like an idiot. I was just staring at my baby betta and poking my finger at the top of my tank just above the waters surface. He/she was...
  16. My fish is dieing

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello My fish is dieing and I was just wondering what all you guys did when your fish are dieing. I get really attached to my fish even though I've had him for 2 days. I can't sleep and I won't stop crying. There's no medical stuff I can do to help my fish. What do you do to cope with a dieing fish
  17. Sad, Depressed or Dying?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So i've had my betta fish, Lebron, for almost 2 months. He's so friendly & energetic. To my understanding, betta fish were very lazy & boring. But Lebron is the complete opposite! He swims around ALL day, greets me everytime i come in the room & even sleeps at the corner of his tank near my bed...
  18. Conflicted

    Other Fish
    So there's this blind Glofish Tetra and I feel so bad because no one wants him and I really want to get him but I know they live in groups and whatnot and the poor fish doesn't have eyes for crying out loud, would he even notice he's not in a group with other fish? Blahh I want it!!

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey guys... Pretty new here, um... well, thanks for taking the time to read this. Well, I have my beautiful blue betta fish, and for about a week now, he's become lethargic, and isn't moving well. He stays at the bottom, not moving, or comes to the top (not moving) and occasionally takes air. He...
