    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, So I had two fish, in a 5 gallon tank with a filter and a heater. One, Plato, was a small crowntail with a tiny stomach and he'd often get bloated if I fed him more than every other day. Zeus is a regular betta whom I've only seen overfed once or twice. Anyway, last week I came home...

    I'm worried about Fishie. He's still refusing to eat anything that isn't blood worms, his fins all of a sudden look like their getting smaller, and he doesn't flare up AT ALL anymore. He's still swimming around fine and when blood worms do come around he goes insane for them. But something just...
  20. Help please!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I recently (week and a half ago) bought a young male betta, and things seem to be going south rapidly. At first, every time i lifted the lid to feed him in his tank, he would swim to the top and quickly eat all of his food. Now he just sits at the bottom, and does not ever come up to eat. He...
