    I need help!! bettas eyes seem strange !

    I recently got a white platinum betta fish (unnamed) and I’ve recently noticed there’s something wrong with his eyes. I’ve noticed that he’s ”bumped” into the tank glass a lot and that he is unresponsive to my finger tapping on the glass. I’ve done some research and I think it could be cloud...

    Good deal on tank?

    I was searching for a 5 - 10 gallon tank to up size my betta into (he is currently in a 2.5.) I found a great tank on a local website that I know to be trusted. This tank is for sale for $30. I have $50 to spend, I would get more cartilage for this tank and cycle it properly before putting Bleu...

    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.

    Community Tank Turning Yellow and Slowly Dying off

    Hey, so I have a growout tank where I kinda just throw most of my livebearer fry and small angels that I get from the store (i'll describe the tank more below).

    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.

    Hi, I have a platinum white half moon betta. I’ve had him for over two years so he is pretty old. He lives in a 10 gallon aquarium but I just recently moved him to a 5.5 quarentine tank due to his fin rot. I read somewhere that elderly bettas can get chronic fin rot and never get better. I...

    What tank heater should I buy?

    I’ve had my fish tank since August and I’ve been able to avoid getting a heater since I live in Florida. Now it’s going to start getting in the 50s and I really don’t want my water to get cold. I have a 5.5 gallon tank for my betta fish. What heater should I buy? I’m scared because a lot of...

    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 :)
