    Chronically Bloated Betta

    Hi! So, I am very new to keeping bettas and currently have a betta named Walter. He was donated to my place of work and had been kept in a tiny bowl for about a year by his previous family. I’ve been feeding him the pellets that the family brought with them, and i’ve just found out that they are...

    Betta Fungal Infection

    I haven’t been soaking them so i’ll have to do that! And they’re by Zoo Med, it was what his previous owners had been feeding him so I just kept using it, but if it’s not a very good brand I can switch?

    Betta Fungal Infection

    Awesome thank you! And here’s a close up, I also circled the lump- does this help? Unfortunately I can’t take any new pictures because it disappeared during the night, and it’s starting to grow back again but not very easy to see. Thank you! Is there a guide for what my betta should look like...

    Betta Fungal Infection

    Okay so I’ve been posting quite a bit about my betta (Walter) because it looks like he developed a fungal infection on his gills. I heard a lot of different things but decided the safest would be to use aquarium salt. I am treating him in his tank (which i also heard quite a few different...

    Is this ok?

    Is it okay to use a previous tank as a new quarantine tank? I used this tank about 1-2 years ago for a betta fish before i found out that it’s too small. Now i was wondering if it’s okay to use it as a quarantine tank because it still has some algae stuck to the sides that i don’t think will...
