    Is My Betta Dying?

    I was required to bring him back to work where his tumor spread until it covered his whole back. He passed away a few months ago.

    My Heart Is Breaking

    In all honesty, I'm going to bring Neville back. I warned her that he would not make it. And I gave her reasons why he would not. If Neville dies and I pray he doesn't it will be on her. But I'm going to be telling my coworkers that I'm no longer running a fish hospital for all their Bettas...

    My Heart Is Breaking

    Update: my work is now requiring me to bring back Neville and Bubbles. I informed them that they both would probably die if brought back into those conditions. Especially Neville because he has the rotted away dorsal fin and the tumor has formed in its place. I told my director that without a...

    Awkward Betta Moments Captured

    I wish my Bettas would rest on the leaves or plants I have in their tanks, but nooooo I guess gravel is much more comfortable. At least Phoenix rests in a shot glass.

    Awkward Betta Moments Captured

    One of my new ladies (Princess Peach) loves following the other lady (Moon) around. Well moon went into the cave in the tank and Princess Peach swam around EVERYWHERE looking in plants behind the filter and heater for Moon. Then Moon swam out of the cave and Peach swam up to Moon and started...

    Awkward Betta Moments Captured

    Back with Midnight shared a tank with some albino Corys he was like a babysitter to them. They'd constantly be spazzing out and swim into the pipe decor I kept in there. Well the Corys weren't the brightest crayons in the box and would forget how to get out and Midnight would go into the pipe...

    Awkward Betta Moments Captured

    He's a handsome guy! Luka does that too from time to time. Whenever I add a new plant to his tank for some reason he must think he needs to inspect it with his whole face. Given that he is blind in one eye, but it's adorable. He'll suddenly just nose dive down into the plant. Oh and Rebel and...

    My Heart Is Breaking

    Bubbles was being a trip last night! I think he was trying to cheer me up, he kept rolling over then swam up and did a tail swish, then he swam a bit then rolled over again. Bettas truly are amazing little creatures and deserve all the love that they can get. I've been working as hard as I can...

    Awkward Betta Moments Captured

    The other night Mars was being very possessive of the sunken ship decor in his tank. He was about to get a water change and he looked at me and went to his ship and just laid on it. Like "lady this is my ship! You do not touch my ship! You do not move my ship! Stay away!!!!"

    Awkward Betta Moments Captured

    I just wanted to make a post where people can comment or post pictures of odd things their Bettas do. Like from Luka I get awkward stares at random times from him. One time I even told him I saw him once and he swam into his plants to continue staring. Bubbles likes to roll over like a dog, then...

    Betta Transformations!

    I wish there was a way I could show personality changes! My Luka since I rescued him has just become a little active stinker fins! When I brought him home from his old home he was bloated, extremely lethargic, wouldn't eat, rarely went up to get air, or move from the same spot. His water was...

    Bettas Are Such Picky Eaters

    So when I first brought home most of my Bettas they wouldn't eat the pellets I offered and that was expected, however I feed my Bettas, Omega One Betta pellets and I tried to switch it up one day because I had a little left over from an old container. They looked at the pellets, looked at me...

    It's not all just teachers and parents doing the work, children are born with an individual temperament. With nature vs nurture it's part biological and part taught. Yes society including parents teach a child to behave a certain way. But they are born with a set temperament that can cause them...

    Everyone, Comet passed. The lady tried to tell me he was fine yesterday and I went in at the end of the day to get him and he was dead. He was still in the tank too and the tank was a mess. Swim in Peace my baby, you didn't deserve what you got. She's definitely not getting Bubbles back now!

    I got one of my top fin 20's running. As for the other one, the whole motor part isn't making the impeller spin. So I'm just going to get a new one.

    Betta Drawings

    I think I have a problem... I'm obsessed with drawing pictures of my Bettas. Painting, soft oil pastels, sketching, colored pencil, all that! I just love drawing them! I could go to draw a picture of a tree and... whoops.... there's another Betta. Please tell me I'm not the only one.

    My Filters Stopped Working!

    I raised the water level ,all the top fin 20 is doing now is just making loud noises. I got my marine land bio wheel filter running again and stuck that in my 30 gal, the impeller was a little dirty. I had to take the filter from my 5 gal and put it in my 10gal and the filter from my 3 gal into...

    My Filters Stopped Working!

    I unplugged my 3 of my filters because I was changing the plugs they were in so I don't have cords running across the room and I went to plug them back in and they're running but no longer sucking up water. Two are a top fin 20 power filter, one is a marine land one its the bio wheel one, I...

    Fishy Seizures

    It's all about a fish being under stress. It's ok if you don't believe it but from observation, I've found it to be true.

    Fishy Seizures

    Personally I've watched several of my friends former Bettas go into shock from being scared of the camera flash and then later on have seizures. And the tapping causes stress which can definitely leave the fishes body open to potentially having seizures. Those are just things to avoid doing in...

    Fishy Seizures

    All fish can have them, however, I've only experienced it with two of my Bettas. I rarely trust pet stores to give me any information. Just throwing this out there if you have an Instagram account I'm an admin on a page & we give a lot of great advice to new Fish/ Betta owners.

    Please Help Id What's Wrong W My Fish!

    I would try getting some bettafix (its cheap and found at most pet stores but not always very effective), or if you want to spend the money Thatpetplace.com has kanaplex that is great for treating infections. Kanaplex is not expensive but you just have to factor in shipping costs, i have not...

    Please Help Id What's Wrong W My Fish!

    He definitely appears to have fin and tail rot. It looks like his fins are clamped a bit too from the pictures. Does he fan out his tail fin any or does it stay that tight together? How is his behavior?

    Fishy Seizures

    I'm going to talk about fish seizures because many people do not know that fish can have them. Fish that have seizures are not likely to recover and live much longer after the seizures occur. But fortunately for you there are a few ways to help lesson the risk of them. Betta or fish seizures are...

    My Heart Is Breaking

    No, but its the least expensive to have. One room had a hamster but a kid took it out and put it in its ball and tried to play soccer with the hamster ball. The hamster hit a shelf and died instantly from shock. The other teachers say that they're not as worried if a fish dies. I cannot stand...

    I want to and I really should, the two main deciders on the matter however are at corporate levels. It's our centers company headquarters that requires this and the state early childcare licensing agency. I'd have to get several people to back me up, and I know most of my coworkers wouldn't...

    I know most of my coworkers could care less. Thankfully the lead teacher I work with shares the same enthusiasm about her fish as I do mine! I've even let her decorate her tank with several of my left over live plants because I know she actually cares about her Betta. We are required to have a...

    I close each day so I'm thinking I bring a Betta cup and on Monday before I leave I go and get him and bring him home. I doubt she'll even notice he's gone! He is so small, he's probably only about one year maybe a little more. He's my baby baby. Yup I'm convinced I'm taking my baby back on Monday!

    My Heart Is Breaking

    It is most definitely caused from stress. I caught one kid trying to put a crayon in his tank. All the lady said to the kid was "we don't get crayons wet." I got down to the child's level and looked at him and said " how would you like it if you woke up and had a bunch of crayons in your bed, I...

    I trusted a lady to watch after my Betta Comet while I treated her sick Betta because I didn't have an extra tank. He's been there for about a week now and his current home is in a preschool room with a bunch of 3 year olds. The old fish Bubbles had developed fin and tail rot, popeye, cateracts...

    Swim Bladder Issues!!

    Hi, I hope his condition is better by now however if it isn't or just for future information there are several things you can do for bloated swim bladder. Such as lowering the water level( so he doesn't have to work as hard to swim up to get air), you could also turn off all lights in the tank...
