    I have had Romeo for a few months now, and while I don't see him nearly often enough (he's in my bedroom) I know he's a pretty active fish. Well, about a week and a half ago I noticed that he'd swim up for air, and only air: he's not eating, not swimming around at all--he doesn't even greet me...

    I have had Bubbles for 4 months or so and she was always active and always hungry. Over the last few days, she isn't eating, swims to the top a lot for air, but stays mostly on the bottom. She also seems to be breathing heavy. She is in a 2.5 gallon heated aerated tank w/ gravel, a fake plant...

    I have been given the classroom betta to heal. He was pretty bad off when I got him. I honestly thought he was already dead. He was given to me on Tuesday (3 days ago). At that time his condition was: listless/laying on the bottom of the tank having difficulty swimming to the surface...

    Hi, everyone! I have a quick question -- I'm new to this site. But here's a quick little excerpt about my Betta before I go into anything- I've had my female Betta for about a month now. Her name is Cleo. She's a fiesty little thing with a lot of personality! =) When I turn the light on, she...
