  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi! My little one has really been through the ringer lately. He had a snail friend for a while (who he killed, so now he has no tankmates) and my roommate was overfeeding him and I'm fairly sure a combination of overfeeding and ammonia caused him some problems. He was very lethargic, wouldn't...

    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.
