    Hi, I have a platinum white half moon betta. I’ve had him for over two years so he is pretty old. He lives in a 10 gallon aquarium but I just recently moved him to a 5.5 quarentine tank due to his fin rot. I read somewhere that elderly bettas can get chronic fin rot and never get better. I...

    I bought a betta fish back in May. He's all white, beautiful fins & I really really like him. He used to swim around a 1 gallon tank but then I changed him to a 3 gallon for some extra space. His tank has plastic plants, rocks, a light, and heater to keep the temp at a solid 79-80 degrees. I've...
