  1. Betta Fish
    I have some conserns about my betta fish. It looks like his back fin is folded or rolled up? I don't know exactly how to explain it but he also doesn't flare his fins at all and almost looks like he struggles to keep his back body floating and it sinks. Then he just goes to the bottom to lay down.
  2. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I have a 5 gal. tank with a male betta and 4 neon tetras. When feeding I give the betta his food first, 2-3 pellets, before putting in the tetra flakes. He finishes his pellets and ends up eating some of the tetra food that floats around that the tetras haven't yet gotten to. This means he keeps...

    Hi everyone! I am fairly new to both this forum and to tropical fish keeping in general. There’s a lot of information to learn! I’m about to graduate college, and I’ve had a female betta in a 3 gallon tank in my dorm. I now know that that is too small so I bought her a 10 gallon for my new...

  6. Betta Fish
    Hi, I’ve had a betta fish for over almost two years now. He’s a male half moon and he lives with an aquatic mystery snail. He used to live in a 3.5 gallon tank but I moved him to a 6 gallon tank a few months ago. A couple weeks ago I noticed some white stuff on his back and I was very concerned...

    Hi! Uh, I don't really have much to say but the automatic message said I should introduce myself, so here I am I guess. I just recently got into the fish keeping hobby with a pretty basic little 10 gal, 1 betta (named Augi) and 4 sterbai cory cats. I kinda got into it when my mom got a betta--...

    So earlier an accident happened - my betta got sucked into the siphon I was cleaning his tank with and his head is now stuck in the small tube section but unaccessible. Me and my boyfriend have cut the tube apart and tried pulling him out and it hasn't worked. I have a feeling the reason he...

    I think he might have a fungal infection and I have been treating with pimafix for 2 weeks and seen no improvement. He is in a 1-gallon tank with a filter and LED lights, no heater. I have had him for about a year, and this actually started a few months ago and showed no signs of worsening, but...
  14. Tropical Fish Diseases
    I've had my betta for a year now, and about a few weeks ago I noticed two lumps on him - one is bigger and closer to his head, and the other is on the opposite side and further back. I've also noticed that he's been going to his usual corner, but staying there longer - he still moves around a...

    Hi guys, I've been a fish keeper for a few years but have never been filter-less for obvious reasons. I've had to downscale my tank due to moving house but currently have a relatively heavily planted 40L tank. It doesn't have any live stock but I was debating adding a Betta just because I love...

    I bought a while ago a halfmoon betta fish that was in poor condition knowing it would need a lot of help. Poor guy had fin rot and a fungal condition that was making his white body black round his mouth and gills. He's cleared up from finrot, and the fungal infection is also gone. He's now...

    Hello! I am looking to set up my very first tank with a betta. I've been doing a lot of reading, but I've seen conflicting information about which kits are good quality, which filters are appropriate for bettas, etc., so I thought maybe I'd try asking if anyone here has supplies for a betta...

    Preamble: Hello all, I have a betta in a 3-gal "walstad" bowl. Very low tech (just a light); very heavily planted. The water parameters are fine, as is expected in an established NPT. The betta is probably about 2.5 to 3 years old (i'm not sure, he's a rescue), and the bowl has been set up for...

    My rose petal betta loves to eat mosquito larva. Has anyone else tried it ? They go crazy, as is plainly visible in this video. I'd like to hear about other people's experiences with this perfect live food. And if you have any questions about it, feel free to ask. Here is a great video to show...
