    Hi there everyone So my boy is a white opal betta who has had fin nipping issues in the past that we had resolved.

    Hi! So my betta fish’s tail and fins have been ripping and look torn up, I don’t know if he has fin rot, is stressed and tore them himself, or if the decorations he has is too sharp. He was in a 2.5 when his fins first started to tear, but now he is in a 5.5 gallon tank. I would like help on...

    Hi, I have had my betta for 3 months, I have him in a 3 gallon tank with a filter and heater. I bought a suction hose to clean his gravel and tried to use it for the first time today. Turns out my tank is too tall and not wide enough for me to create the suction it needs, needless to say I was...

    Hello! I'm new to using any kind of forum but I've gotten desperate. I have had my betta for a little over three months. I started him out in a small fish bowl when I first got him. After reading up more on betta my father and I, after a couple of weeks, went out to buy an aquarium that fit his...

    Hello Bettafish community, I've been handling bettas for a good amount of time, and I've never had this experience with a boy who's fins won't heal. I come from mostly a ciclid background, but have fallen in love with several of the wild-betta types. On that note, the kids really like the...

    I've noticed my betta's fins have been have been tearing and just looking poor lately, and I took out the plastic plants for a while and nothing seemed to change. His dorsal fin has been kind of weird looking for a while too. It looks sort of twisted/collapsed. I thought maybe it got hurt when I...

    Okay, so my betta's name is Carl and I bought him February 4th. He is the 2nd betta I've ever owned and the first one died to my poor knowledge on how to care for Bettas. He lives in a heated 3.5 gallon tank with a small API filter. I feed him once a day in the morning: 2 little pellets, and...

    Hello Betta lovers! Meet Nereu, I bought him from a shop near my house. Actually, he might have bought me... :P But now, as you might have noticed in the picture above, his fins are a bit torn at the region that the dorsal fin meets the caudal fin. He is resting, he is a bit weird I saw...

    I feel like the worst fish mom ever. I thought I was doing good by my lil Wal-Mart rescue, Darth Zoro aka D. Z. or Dizzy. ( Story on name at end) I bought him plants and thought I should get a real plant substrate. Well he's been swimming/ patrolling around the bottom along the gravel and...

    My betta, Spitfire, somehow squeezed himself into my loach's coral rock to get the loach's algae tablet (he and the yoyo get along fine even when they steal each other's food) and got stuck on the way out. He's COMPLETELY torn up! He has NO SCALES left and his fins are SHREDDED. 98% of them are...

    Hi I'm really new to betta fish and I just bought this pretty veil tail a couple months ago and was given a 1.5 tetra brand tank with filter. The heater is pointless right now since were I live is pretty hot so I don't want to over heat him. I usually leave for 2 days to cost family and every...

    My new betta Glacier is acting very strange. I wonder is he is sick or if he is just adjusting. He is currently out of the tank because my girl Vapor keeps escaping to his side of the tank and bullying him. His fins are in worse shape than they were yesterday and I don't know if it is Vapor's...

    Are my Betta's ventral fins (I think they're called) torn?? I've had my fish for quite a few months now, and about a month or so ago I noticed his ventral fins looking a bit torn and there are bits of white on the tips of them but cannot recall if it has always been there or not. I also have a...

    Hello, everyone! If any of you saw my first post, you'll know I own a partially blind betta. He has a very hard time seeing out of his right eye, and his left he can only see maybe a third that normal fish can. I have him in a bright, low filtered tank with turquoise smooth glass pebbles and...
