My girlfriend however became interested in starting a community tank so we set up...

    Does My Betta Have Velvet?

    Hi Everybody! I just got a crown tail betta fish the other day and noticed that there is a gold powder on him.

    I need help with a fish that isn't eating

    I just got 5 new livebearers 8 days ago, and they have all been doing fine except for one of them.
