  1. Help?? fin rot? nipping?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...
  2. Self destructive Betta??

    Betta Fish Care
    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...
  3. White/yellow spot on anal fin

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...
  4. Is Daryl just getting old?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    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...
  6. What kind/color betta is my rescued boy?

    Betta Pictures
    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...
  7. 3 gallon setup

    Betta Pictures
    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...
  8. Breed of Daryl

    Betta Chat
    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...
  9. Question

    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?
  10. Dividing tanks

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    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...
  11. Veiltails.....least favourable?

    Betta Chat
    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...
  12. Would silk plants get rid of this problem?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    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...

  14. Tail split in half?!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...
  15. Mermaid Betta Fish

    Betta Art
    I suck at drawing people. And Mermaids. But one day I was bored and scrolling 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 :

  17. Beta fin issues?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So, skittle hasn't been doing to good lately. He is a veil tail, and his lower fin seems to be knotted? While his back fin is cut. I'm not sure how it's cut, but it's split. I try and get him to flare, and he tries, but he can't fully spread out like he used too, especially his lower fin. He has...

    Hi I'm new!!!! Meet Patronus, my sweet betta, I got him on September 1 from PetSmart. He lives in a 5 gallon heated tank, all by his lonesome, and he loves it. He was on the small side and pale white, hence his name. Over the past couple of weeks, I've noticed his color changing. This...

    Breeding Betta Fish
    Hi, I'm new. I don't know if this is the right forum, but is seems the most accurate. Is there anyone (Especially in the USA) who breeds/sells dragonscale veiltails? I would love to find a male, especially in black! On a more topic related note, relative to other animals, how difficult is it...
  20. New betta owner, I think he might have fin rot

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've had my red veil tail for 2 weeks now and I think he might have fin rot. He's my first betta though, so I'm really uncertain. I haven't noticed any black on his fins and he's not behaving any differently, I just want to make sure. The first picture is him when I got him and the next 2 are...
