    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...

But just minutes ago I heard a noise coming from the tank and saw her chase him. To me it's been normal since she would usually stop after a...

    Hey all, I'm really hoping for some fast info here. So I purchased my Dragon Scale Betta, Taki, From Pet-smart on Saturday (It's now the next Friday as I write this).

    I need a small bit of advice on what to do about possible dropsy!

    (2/28/17) So Elizabeth has been dead for a while now. His fins were clamped really bad and his fins were all ripped up (I got too lenient with him being out in the tank, I was so hopeful he was just fine). He was such a beautiful boy when I first got him, I wish I had known how to take better...
