    Help with betta.

    Hi all, you’ve helped me in the past with my first betta, and this time I need help with my other somewhat elderly man. He’s around 5 years old, and is usually very energetic attention seeking.

    Help! Does my betta have fin rot?

    So I have a super delta betta in a heated 4 gallon planted tank with a functioning low flow filter.

    Hi everyone!   I'm a new betta owner. I've been keeping my betta in a one gallon tank and I feel like an idiot for purchasing it now that I've read in forums that bettas need about 2.5 gallons and I do not have the money to get a larger tank at the moment. However, I did have the money to...
