    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting on something like this and I really hope someone might be able to help. I noticed there were parts of my betta’s tail lying on the bottom of the tank and it looks like part of his tail ripped off. My questions: Is it something more serious than a...
  2. White Blister on Betta's tail fin. Ich or tumor?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I noticed a white spot on by betta's tail fin right up next to his body. It almost looks like a blister or a whithead. Only just noticed it in the past day or two and see no others on him. I dont think it looks like ich, but I'm no expert. Can anyone tell me what this might be? I got this...
  3. What tail type?

    Betta Chat
    I was an impulse buyer at petco while shopping for welcome-home presents for my dog and I bought a "baby boy" from petco without knowing all there is for proper care of an adult betta, let alone a lil guppy. I've since accommodated his current set-up as best as I can (currently a 0.7 gal tank in...
  4. What happened to his TAIL? Help please.

    Betta Chat
    Hi guys, so after 20+ years I have finally gotten myself a male beta fish. I had noticed some fin rot on his tail that I think was caused by stress, his first tank was too small and the filter was too strong, so I got him a larger tank and he seemed much happier. I have been treating him with...
  5. Tail biting/mechanical damage? Pics

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Pebbles has acquired some long rips in his fins :( I do not believe it is fun rot and he seems to be active and eating well. After some research, I'm thinking it's either tail biting or mechanical rips from his aquarium plant, but I would like a second opinion. In the mean time I am treating...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Housing: Sebastian normally lives in a 6 gallon shared with another betta named Ciel (yes the tank is divided, yes the divider is covered by plants so they don't constantly see each other, no they can't jump over the divider). I moved Sebastian into a separate area (about a 1 gallon bowl) to...

    I recently got 2 new bettas. Both elephant ear half moons. They are in a divided 10 gallon tank and I noticed now after 5 days my one betta is fin biting. I don't know why. I have all natural plants and it's pretty well planted, check my journal to see some pictures. The divider is blocked...

    I'm a first-time betta owner, and I have several live plants in my tank, with soft gravel on the bottom. I also have in my tank a fake rock/cave decoration with soft, silky plant leaves on it.

    Okay, so I have posted here before about my guy's issues with his tail, and it just seems to be getting worse. :( This was him the first day I brought him home: This was him a couple of weeks after coming home (when I first made a post): Immediately after that post, I removed all the in...
  17. is my crowntail OK?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a double ray crowntail. He looks different from the picture now as he is older, bigger and changed colour a bit. But what I'm worried about is his tail fin. I'm not sure if its just because he's a large betta with a large tail, but it seems to hang behind him a lot. Almost baggy like...

    Betta Pictures
    I bought my male betta, Dawn, at PetSmart and he was labeled a Dumbo. Are Dumbo betta a category or do they too have their own colors/tails? I'm just making sure because I'm curious if he fits under a color category. Also, could someone tell me how to post a picture on here from an iPhone...
  19. Tail type question

    Betta Fish Care
    The 2.5 gallon tank I have has a filter, and it puts out a medium current on the lowest setting. I had a Betta (Delta Tail Male) that lived in it for 1.5 years, he didn't seem to mind the current, but I could tell that there were times when he struggled to swim around in he tank. I am going to...
