    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I know bettas can go awhile without food, but what worries me is my little guy Dawson is not rounded at the tummy at all, and seems quite thin if you look at him from above. He is young though. I brought him home from Walmart, where he's been for a few weeks - (scary). I got him early...

    I just recently purchased my Betta fish named Sushi. I began feeding sushi the pellets, and realized he wasn't eating them, only holding in his mouth, to soon spit out. I decided to switch Sushi to the flakes, but to no avail. He continued to spit out his food. This is really concerning me. It's...

    I'm a new betta owner, and I have him for about one week so far. I recently received my orders of silk plants and cave from Amazon for him. I put them next to his bowl, so he can see them. I didn't place them in yet because I still need to get gravel. Ever since I put his new accessories near...

    I got sprinkles a week ago. His eating habits were good at first, but lately for the past few days I think he's been having trouble with his pellets. I feed him Omega one betta buffet pellets. He goes to them, eats it, then spits it out. Then as it falls he chases it to the bottom but once...
