    Hi everyone! Just recently brought home my first Betta. He was labeled as a veiltail but as I was reading up on Betta care I came across a photo of a spade tail and I'm wondering if he was mislabeled? Love him either way!

    On the best mornings, the sun shines on Rosey’s tank just right and shows off her colours!! Thought I would share!!😉 ▫️ Rosey is a female veiltail I picked up on a whim from my local Petsmart. She seemed the most healthy and I’d never seen a betta with her colouration, we already had an extra...

    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 purchased my betta last week. I let my kids pick one that they all agreed on, and they chose a male dragonscale. After coming home, I googled pictures of dragonscales, and in the pictures, their scales look more defined / thicker in general. My betta is still small yet, barely measuring 2...

    Hi! I've had my veiltail for about a month now. At fist he was doing okay and then about a week ago i noticed that his tail was a little ragged. It was super sudden, in the span of about an hour. I did a 50% water change right away, and it seemed to get a bit better. then a few days later it...

    Hi all, I have had my betta (a beautiful red/blue veil tail) for 6 months, however in the past 3 months or so he seems to be in a permanent cycle of destruction! Initially he was in a 10L tank, and one day I came home and practically all his tail was gone! I looked closely and noted it was...

    Hello everyone! It's been a while. So a month or two ago, Scouts-Many-Marshes developed a white or pale yellow spot on his anal fin. At the time, it looked like it was damaging the fin. I consulted a friend who said it may be fungal fin rot, so I went to the pet store and the cashier...

    He is a very happy energetic beta and as you know I got him a heated 5 gallon tank with a filter and a baffle. He is very happy and swims around. Gradually over the months his face has gotten bony and some of his fins have strips of silver in them. He is very active. Still loves to eat, he just...

    Due to certain circumstances (I am moving countries!) I need to re-home my lovely fish :-( . I am looking for someone in the Vancouver area, so as to reduce travelling time on his part. Everything is included: 5 gallon tank, filter, heater, food, water conditioner, live and fake plants. He is...

    Hi all! About three weeks ago- I rescued a beautiful but very, very sick betta from the relative of a friend. The betta had such severe finrot and ammonia poisoning I did not expect him to live, but with lots of care and medication he has improved and seems to be thriving! I am thrilled! His...

    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...

    My Veil Tail i believe was bread between a VT and a CT because he has very spikey looking tail like a crown but it is more veil like. It is beautiful really. My favorite part about him is his dorsal fin. It looks so weird when it its down like a bad comb over a melted tail but when he flares it...
  13. Breeding Betta Fish
    I've seen on the internet that some people despise the idea of breeding VTs. I found a picture someone had posted of batman slapping Robin, who'd been asking to breed his VT. Why don't people like to breed them?

    Alright so I have a 5 gallon aquarius tank that currently is home to my spunky VT and one little ghost shrimp. They get along just fine, other than when the shrimp tries to hang out in my betta's favorite hiding spot. There is white/opaque dumbo DT at my petco that I've absolutely fallen in...

    I love Scout so much....But sometimes it seems like if you have a veiltail, it's like....having a mutt while everyone else has pedigrees from a long line of champions. It's like veiltails are the least favourable tail type. Like they're too ordinary. I wouldn't trade Scout for the world. But so...

    I have a 1.5 year old veil-tailed betta. I noticed his fins tearing(?) gradually the past month. I treated him for fin rot but the edges of his fins are not black and are not receding any further. However, they are still not well. The water levels are fine. I change his water regularly. I do...

    Hello all! My boyfriend recently got a betta fish after he saw how neat my lil betta is. His name is Spiff. Today my bf noticed that Spiff's tail fin seems to have split in half. It looked like he has a veil tail when we picked him out so this is strange. My bf changed Spiff's water today and...

    I suck at drawing people. And Mermaids. But one day I was bored and scrolling DeviantART.com and the next think I knew Scout and Kai(SIP) were Mermaids. I feel a little foolish about it. Here's Scout as himself and as a merman :
