    Hello, sorry if my english will be not perfect, Im not a native. I adopted a male betta one week ago, previous owner kept him in 63gallon tank with Pterophyllum fishes.

  2. Betta Fish Care
    Hello, I just got back home from vacation for a week and my neighbor took very good care of my betta fish until I got home. I came back on Friday, and just yesterday I noticed that my fish was sitting at the bottom of his bowl, and as soon as I crouched down to look at him, he darted up very...
  3. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I'm very confused as to what happened. I read about that mysterious disease that is posted on here, I'm not sure if it was that or not. Did only take about 24 hours and now both Bettas are dead. They had both stopped breathing and moving yesterday, and started floating around. Draco died...

    I just got a new Veiltail today. This is my fourth or fifth Betta in my life, and I have never seen anything like this. All he has done since I added him to my 10 gallon tank is swim from back corner to back corner, flaring at his own reflection. He doesn't seem to notice any of the plants...

    Hi everyone... I've been lurking around for a while and doing lots of research but I'm stumped. My boy Alpha has been with me since October of 2011. He's currently in a 2.5 gallon tank (couldn't bring a bigger tank since I packed only whatever fit in my car when I moved. More about that later...
  7. Breeding Betta Fish
    Sorry, I wasn't really sure where to post this, since there was no "strange, unbettalike behavior" section. I suppose my dear Ella has reached full maturity now, because she lays eggs a little less than once a week. Usually about 100-200 eggs around 1mm. They look healthy enough, white...

    So I've had my male betta fish for a little over a year now. He has always been healthy, swam around a lot, and always swam right to the food when I fed him. About a week ago I switched him into a bigger sized tank. This tank has a filter and the other one I didn't use the filter just cleaned it...

    My new fish, P.K., is going about his life, sleeping, swimming, etc. and for the las hour or so, he's been spontaneously opening his mouth. Is this normal? I'm thinking maybe it's too hot in my room? Please help. I don't want him to pass after two days. See on emergencies/diseases
  11. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Every betta I've ever had has been found the same way when they die except for one... They've all been with their head in the rocks and their tail facing the top of the tank all facing in a 45 degree angle or completely vertical. The miscellaneous one died at the top of his bowl and was very...
