My new show boy. Got him from a friend who was looking to get rid of him. He had this guy hand picked from a breeder in Thailand for show. He’s got great form and loads of personality. The only reason he was looking to get rid of him is because of the bit of red bleeding on his caudal fin (which I don’t mind at all).
I’m thinking of naming him Jon Snow.
Jon Snow ❤️
My boy Domino! <3
I’m such a proud betta mommy. Just look at him he’s so beautiful and also knows how to flare on command. He loves to hide behind the plants or swim through a hole in his root! He’s also already a good eater and begs for food all the time *lol*
It seems like he’s much happier in his own tank than in the one in the pet shop!
Okay, so I just moved and that was stressful on my male betta, but now I'm concerned he is sick. There was a kinda white dust in his tank? to be honest, I actually thought some dust actually got in his water so I fished it out and gave him a bit more water, but I noticed more and now I think maybe his fin is smaller? So I am thinking fin rot, but I can't really see anything on the edge of his fins and I've never dealt with any sickness in fish before... (TBH)
(continued) He is in a 2.5 gallon tank, unfilted but with weekly full changes and every day small water changes. I am going to do a water change tomorrow morning but for now I added some aquarium salt (dissolved in water) into his tank but I’m wondering what you think it is (based off limited information, I know.) and how do you treat a sick fish? So new to this! Please help.
Well honestly what you are doing is correct. I’d keep at it, do a really good tank cleaning. Also if you’re using medication it’s also a good idea to get an air stone. Good luck!
i got a betta last night. it refuses to eat pellets/flakes. its been swimming in a weird way (diagonally). i think it has a swimming bladder the poor thing. i wanted to change its water but wasnt sure how to do it. ><
I would take it back to the store you got it from, usually places like Petsmart and Petco have return policies where if the fish is not in the right shape when you buy it you can return it, then they treat it for whatever is wrong and then you can purchase it back.
Where can I buy stunning male bettas as posted on this website? I have 12 already and named them after the twelve horoscope signs, Looking for extroadinary ones now.
The majority of the betta pictures I use are from breeders on a website called aquabid!
