    hello, I’m a beginner betta fishkeeper. The betta I have has been with me for almost 7 months but the problem just started recently.

    Does my betta have dropsy??

    So I’ve posted a thread about this a week ago. I thought it was bloating or constipation and I fasted her for three days and started feeding her less and it just seems like it’s gotten worse. She used to swim around so much and now she just kinda floats near the top. I’m scared it’s dropsy but...

    Does my betta fish look bloated?

    I feel like I’ve seen her skinnier than this. I think she might be constipated but I’m not sure. I tested my water everything’s fine. I fasted her for a day but I see like no change. I feed her four pellets a day during the week and frozen blood worms on the weekend. Please help thanks.

    Bettas fin ripped what should I do? Please help!

    Hello I think my betta might’ve accidentally ripped her fin. She likes to push herself between the plants in my tank and I wonder if she might’ve injured her fin doing that. Should I just leave it alone? Thanks :)

    Wounded Betta fish?

    Hi, This morning I noticed something was wrong with my Betta fish. I've had him for about 4 months but I recently moved him out of my 110 litre tank to a 22 litre tank (about a month ago) as he was too aggressive to my other fish. Since then he has settled in well and the water levels have been...
