    Betta Fish Care
    Hi everyone, I have a betta fish that has been perfectly fine for the past 2 months, and I've been changing his water once a week and nothing's happened so far but this: Over the past 2 weeks, my betta (Socks) developed a small silver/grey patch of scales under his mouth/gills and near his...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Two days ago I noticed my betta had a small pinhole in his dorsal fin. I took him out of his 10 gallon put him in a 2.5 gallon QT and gave him the appropriate dosage of Bettafix. His hole healed over almost immediately, but this morning before leaving I thought I should keep him in with the...

    In the past couple of days, one of my crowntails stopped swimming. He's ordinarily quite active, swimming around or building a bubble nest. But then he stopped. I moved him into a hospital and he's more active now. I finally got a chance to look at him and he has silver around his chin and his...

  7. What color is she?

    Betta Pictures
    A few days ago I rescued a female CT betta from a petco. She was stressed out when I got her, so her colors looked very different. She looked very much like this in the poor lighting of the store: I have named her Twitch, since she is the most active and spazy of my girls. Twitch is gunmetal...

    Betta Pictures
    This guy was left in my mailbox with a note - "Plz take good care of him!" He seems to be completely healthy going into quarantine! I've never taken care of or owned/bought a crowntail. Is there anything different about this tail type I should know? He's fast! His eyes are a little...
