    My betta Nova just passed away a few days ago and I still don't know why. I'd like your help so that I can do better the next time. WARNING: Multiple images of a sick betta are going to be posted down further. Nova was a halfmoon lavender butterfly rosetail that we picked up from a reputable...

Only have the betta(Dabadee) and two nerite snails that were added a few days ago. This one unknown plant is struggling. I used Fluval Stratum in the corner...

    I haven’t gotten anything yet, so this is still the planning stages! For various reasons I’ve decided to get a Flex, and while I want to get the 32g one day I’m going to start with a smaller one, and the 15g isn’t much more expensive than the 9g. Current stocking plan is a betta, rice fish, and...

    I have one of my female bettas that was in a sorority and ended up getting kicked out of her domain. The other girls are a little bit more active than her so I had to separate her in hopes of finding her a new home. She is very beautiful but has become a little skittish and I am working on...

    Hi everyone! I’m very new to this and I decided I wanted to do a 10 gallon planted betta aquarium. I did all the research I thought I needed to do but alas it turns out nothing is straight forward so I need some help. I set up my tank 1 week ago with some moneywort, Anubias, Cryptocyne...

    Hi everybody, I hope you’re all doing well. This morning, my boy Meddi (named after the Mediterranean Sea) was doing good, his normal self. Then, when I came back from school (about 7 hours later), he had a lighter patch of scales on his head. It doesn’t really look like hole in the head either...

    Kinda new here, also new to shrimp keeping. So, my betta has been munching on the algae wafers I feed to my 4 ghost shrimp. Last time, he got a bit of a big belly and I was worried that he'd be constipated (he wasn't). I don't want him stuffing himself again, so any ideas how to help??

    Water parameters Gh.180 Kh.40 Ph. 6.5 No2 .5 No3 20 The tank is a 5 gallon home to one betta fish. I spotted the weird fungus/mold (I really dont know what it is) on my Vall and on the filters intake for the tank. Is it harmful to my betta? If so how can I get rid of it? Any help is appreciated.

    I'm new, and 2 days ago I got some hornwort and 4 ghost shrimp. My betta suddenly got a ragged edged bottom fin that I suspect to be bacterial? I've read that Melafix or Bettafix are potentially dangerous to bettas, so I'm not sure whether I should try it. I don't have a hospital tank, or any...

    My betta (Dick Nixon) has had ongoing swim bladder issues for over a month now. I treated with Kanaplex/focus for 5 days because other thank sinking he has no obvious visual symptoms. He passes everything he eats, his diet consists of primarily brine shrimp because he has trouble getting to the...

    So my betta just recovered from dropsy a week ago and I'm just monitoring him temporarily in his container. I noticed that he has like colorless splotches and there are black scales around it and from above it doesn't seem cottony and his fins aren't shrinking and tattered. Behavior wise he has...

    Unfortunately I made an unwise decision to add a new betta with my other one. They’re both females, but this one (her name is Neb) is much smaller than I realized, and unfortunately was attacked by the other one and is now missing parts of her tail/fins. She sinks to the bottom of the tank now...
