    Hi all, I recently bought my betta frozen bloodworms and have been thawing them and feeding them to her. She loves freeze-dried bloodworms but it didn't sit well with her digestive tract. I think she doesn't understand that the thawed frozen bloodworms food because it sinks to the bottom. Any...

    Guys I just picked up a new betta fish and I’m pretty excited because it has been a while. I kinda fell out of the hobby for about 4-5 years. I’ve been filled with renewed spirit by aquascaping YouTube and I’m giving it a go. The tank set up has been ROUGH. I had it going for around two months...

    Went to Petsmart yesterday to grab some things for my existing Betta and saw this little gem among the betta racks, she IMMEDIATELY caught my eye and I had to take her home! She's quarantining rn in a 4 gallon tub but she seems very energetic and spunky despite having lived in those awful cups...

    I'm going to save some time and tell you that I was NOT prepared in the way I should have been when I purchased my bettas. I used to have them as a kid, but I wasn't the one who really took care of them. I am a teacher, and I thought the fish would liven up the classroom. I made a lot of...

    I have a blue Veil tail named Oswald, I got him at Petsmart when he was a baby. He's been acting very odd lately, and i'm very concerned. Oswald use to suffer from depression, but a few weeks ago I upgraded his living space to a tank with a better light, an air stone, and gave all natural...

    Well fellow Betta lover's. I upgraded Cobalt's tank to this 3 gallon acrylic. I hate acrylic because it's incredibly easy to scratch, and very hard to take really good pic's. Anywho he looked pretty cramped in that one gallon bowl I had him in, and I didn't want him to have to stay in there...

    I am at college and my roommate and friends make fun of me for actually taking care of my baby. I told them he was sick so I bought him betta meds and they look at me and say "Oh my God Maddy. It's just a fish just let it die". :evil: Like really? I love Daryl and have an extreme anxiety issue...

    Hello, a while ago I purchased a yellow veiltail betta fish. The first picture is what he looked like when I first got him. Since then I've placed him in a five gallon tank with a heater, filter, plants, hiding places, and a few ghost shrimp. But the tips of his fins are gradually getting...

    So a few days ago, I posted about my new male Veil Tail, and how he suddenly started swimming and flaring frantically. This hasn't stopped, but he still breathes and eats normally. He occasionally shoves his face into the gravel, but I'm assuming he's just looking for food. I mentioned I thought...

    Time for attempt number two with this pair. I tried a few weeks ago to breed them and got them to go through the motions, but the male was very inattentive and let the nest dissapate and possibly ate some of the eggs. Hopefully! he acts like a good father this time. I will begin conditioning...
  13. Breeding Betta Fish
    My female Betta, Sasha, is not a year old but i wanted to try and mate her with my male betta, Titan, (both veiltail bettas). When i show them to each other, Sasha will show her vertical stripes. But when i take a cup, put her in the cup, and place that cup in Titan's tank (and bubble nest), she...

    This is a family member's betta but i have taken it upon myself to nurse it back to health, if at all possible. This January marked the 2nd year we had him. Over the past month or so Larry has not had much of an appetite. It started off with him rushing for the food but not being able to grab it...

    Have not named him yet... Fiance picked him out and wants to name him CS for Chicken Sh--, but I'm probably not going to let him go with that. We just moved, so I had to break down and so a bit of change in the tank... Surprisingly, everyone in the tank prior to the VT made it for the...

    I've had Mojo for about 3 weeks and during this time he's been in a one of those little betta tanks they sell at petco and I'm thinking I'd like to upgrade to a 10 gallon to make him more comfortable and give him some more space. This won't freak him out too much being quite a difference from...
