  1. Help! New betta fish and looks sickly?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello. I have gotten a new betta fish today and I worry for him. I got him at a Petsmart where there were bigger bettas, but he caught my eye. He's really skinny, or small, and he hasn't eaten much. He seemed really active in the day, but now that it's night, he's just floating around. I don't...

  7. Fin rot!?

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm pretty sure my betta has fish rot, which he must have had since the fish store because I've only had him 2 days. His fins seem to be frayed and they are red, but that might just be his colouring (he is blue everywhere else). He lives in a 7.5 litre tank with two zebra danios. When I first...

I've googled and youtubed (is that a word?) "bettas from petsmart", "bettas from petco", and even, "bettas from walmart". Out of all, the...
