    Betta fish bloated on a side: what is this!?

    I have a female Betta Splenders, she has bright colors, no issues swimming but she has a really bad growth on a side of the belly. We quarantened her in a 5L tank to check how her feces were and to make her and other fishes safe. At the beginning she had stringy poop and we (my bf and I) thought...

    Is this really Betta imbellis?

    I bought this betta in shop in japan as betta imbellis. But I am not sure if this fish is really imbellis. This fish has red bar in his gill, so I think this betta looks more like splendens or siamorientalis. I don't know well about betta because I've just started betta rearing only 2 month ago...

    Melafix Hoax?

    Hello everyone! (wow, I'm back? :oops:) After (almost) finishing the first semester of year 2 in my aquaculture studies at Dalhousie, I've found I've learned more about finfish and shellfish than I've bargained for, and a notable subject has crossed my path while caring for my own fish that I...

    Petition Petco to raise Betta min tank size from 0.25 gal to 3 gal in their "Betta Care Sheet"

    Hi -- I started a petition for Petco to raise their recommended min aquarium size for Betta fish from 0.25 gal to 3 gal in their Betta Care Sheet. Right now when you grab a Betta care pamphlet in their store or look online, it says min: 1/4 gal! Here is the link...

    Betta- Before and After a loving home!

    Saw a ton of threads on posting progress photos of your fish, generally their change with colors and vibrancy, and I figured Honey is a fantastic example of that! Honey isn't a fancy betta, no flowy fins, the "wild" type of betta splendens. I got her on the rack of "less desirable" bettas next...

    How much do YOU spend on a 10 gal betta tank?!

    Hi! I’m doing a contest for college and $1250 is on the line. I’m designing a beginner friendly and humane kit for bettas. So how much have you spent in the past on a 10 gallon betta tank? Including the tank itself, heater, filter, substrate, live plants, hides, lights, water change equipment...

    Constantly Worried my New Betta is Dying...

    I've had my betta for almost a month now, and while I thought fish are supposed to be pretty low maintenance, I spend most of my day worrying he is sick and analyzing his every move. Is there a betta expert out there that can tell me if by looking at him, he's healthy or not? He is almost always...

    Urgent Betta Problems!!

    Hi! Listen, sorry if I'm posting about this is in the wrong area, I'm new. But really, I'm very worried about my fish. My mystery snail died, and we left him in the tank for a day or two, because he usually just stopped and hid in his shell for a while. I noticed something was wrong when he did...

    Basically Another Betta Caresheet

    Be aware of what you are getting into before you purchase a Betta fish. Know that these fish can live up to 10 years under the proper care, so do your research before buying. The minimum tank size (officially) for a Betta Splenden is 2.5 Gallons with a heater and filter. Please don't keep a...

    Got Tempted Again...

    Thought I was weaning myself off getting new Betta's, yet this little fella was feisty and willing me to take him home, so how could I resist. Finage needs to heal and grow, and at present he is a shy fella, yet we all know they soon get to accept us near their tanks. He has not got a name as...

    Introducing Javier

    My 5.5 gallon tank seemed stable (temp 80 degrees, pH 6.6, ammonia 0, nitrite 0 and nitrates 5) so I went to my not-so-LFS and found lots of Bettas.  They all seemed more lively then the ones in the chain stores and more responsive when I picked up the cups to examine them.  Put some of the cups...

    Betta Fish Water Emergency

    Hi Everyone!     Let me start off by saying that I feel a little like a "fish out of water" here (bad pun, I know), but desperate times call for desperate measures. I am a 3rd year college student and I took in a male betta fish from a guy down the hall who didn't have time for the...

    White Spots Doubt

    Hi everyone, here I come again with my dearest Schatten. I just noticed he is with two white spots on his head, a very small one and another bigger under the first. I read some info and I was thinking if it would be fungus or something, if he maybe hurt himself on the rocks in the bottom of the...

    Help With My Betta Fin

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and also new on dealing with fishes, as well with betta ones. I've got mine on March and I try my best to take care of him and yesterday I bought a plant to put inside his tank, but it didn't fit very well - a little bit big. It seemed my betta fish didn't like...

    Jew's Nest

    I just wanted to share that Jew, my 2-ish month old betta (well, that's how long I've owned him, and he was pretty small upon purchase) was just caught red-handed in the middle of building a nest.     Here's a YouTube video of him caught in action. We don't own any female betta (yet), so for...
