  5. My new veiltail betta hasn't flared yet.

    Betta Fish Care
    ]Hey, I got a new red veiltail betta today. He looks and acts perfectly healthy, kinda like a puppy being brought home for the first time. But there is one thing that is bothering me. He hasn't flared at me or anything yet. When I got my crowntail 3 years ago, he was flaring a lot. At food, at...

Peacock has started to discolor from age...

Here she? is from June 27th (when i first brought him/her home), July 2, July 24 (i enhanced the pics at the time so the colors are very exaggerated), and Aug 13th. She injured her fins recently so that is the dark spot on her fins. I'm treating...

    Thought I'd post pics of my boys... the story goes: I started with one, cause my house felt lonely and since I can't have a dog/cat where I live, a betta seemed like the best option! Before I knew it... I had 2. Pretty happy with just two boys, Kennex & Dorian but then... I rescued a betta from...

  13. What type of betta is Cosmo??

    Betta Pictures
    I got Cosmo in November as a petco baby. I loved that he was a pretty double tail and I just assumed that he was a veiltail. But as his fins started growing, I noticed he has a bit of a fringe on his fins and tail more like a crowntail. Can anyone tell me what kind of betta he actually is?? This...

    I love all bettas and these are only preferences. I used to love halfmoons until I got my little veiltail boy. Now I prefer the asymmetrical look of the veiltail. I least prefer double tails. You?

  16. I'm going to try my best to save "Rescue Betta"

    Betta Fish Care
    I work at a Petco where the so called "aquatics specialist" has no idea how to properly care for bettas. About a week ago, she discovered a veiltail betta in a deltatail cup. Not a huge deal, but because we didn't have any extra usable veiltail cups, she pulled him from the floor until we got a...

  20. Is this fin rot?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I asked this question previously but I used older pictures. Some thought it was fin rot and some thought it was just his coloring. I decided to post some more recent pictures to get a diagnosis. *The first picture is what he looked like the day I got him. *The second picture is what he...
