    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a male betta in a 2.5 gallon tank. A few days ago, he would go up to the floating food pellet, but go to bite at the tablet, but miss. After he would miss, he would leave the pellet and come back a few minutes later. This was kinda aggravating to me, so I knocked on the glass and he...

  12. Fin Rot or Biting?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Helphelphelphelphelp I think Loki has fin rot. I'd say he's biting, but there's a little bit of black around the edges too. The thing is, there were absolutely no signs of it yesterday when I left at two o clock. Now, at ten thirty, I just noticed. I spent the night out, and only got home about...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I got a betta last week, and I just got three ghost shrimp to keep the bottom clean. Since I got them, the betta has acted scared. Whenever the shrimp come near him, he goes the opposite direction and he's acting unnaturally spastic. Is this normal? Is he really scared of the shrimp? Should...

    Betta Fish Care
    Alright, so you know those texting gloves, right? The stretchy finger gloves with the meshy stuff at the fingertips? Well the fingertips have a material in them that allows the transfer of heat and electrochemical transfer to use the touch screen on a phone, ipod, etc. Thing is, for some reason...
  16. Overwhelmed?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I just put Humphrey and Mojo into the new divided 10 gallon tank and I was wondering if it was possible that Humphrey is overwhelmed by the change? Mojo seems ecstatic about the new home but Humphrey is hiding behind his coffee mug cave. (He also shares his side of the tank with the filter).
