    Betta With Ragged Gills?

    unfortunately i don’t have access to indian almond leaves or anything else that releases tannis. i’m interested in the leaves but to order them it would take over a month to get to me :( and i’ll be sure to put a lid on! i don’t have a lid on his tank currently. thanks for your help :)

    Betta With Ragged Gills?

    i made a previous about this betta and his ammonia poisoning that he got from his terrible petco cup. his gill covers are permanently sticking out and have extra tissue it seems. i fear that even if he heals from his ammonia poisoning, his gill covers will never be able to work properly but i...

    How To Effectively Get Rid Of Detritus

    ah interesting. i do have a gravel vac (at least that’s what i think it is) but when i push it down into my gravel a LOT of it gets sucked up. i never thought of putting netting over it that’s a super good idea i’m going to do that. and i know they’re beneficial but when i see them all floating...

    How To Effectively Get Rid Of Detritus

    no i can’t because i have a very fine gravel. instead i take the end of a toothbrush and move it through the gravel to “stir it up” so i can clean it out that way. i don’t overfeed i feed my betta one pellet/worm at a time to prevent the over feeding issue. that’s good to know that they’ll...

    How To Effectively Get Rid Of Detritus

    i am losing my mind. i currently have a 5 gallon with only one betta in it and 5 live plants. i’m doing daily water changes because i’m doing an in fish cycle (don’t worry i test ammonia and nitrite daily and nitrite is always 0 and ammonia is .25 every time). anyway, i do daily water changes...

    Betta Breathing Heavy Cant Swim

    i i have narrowed it down to ammonia or nitrate poisoning. my water changes have been inconsistent over the past week. his tank was never dirty by any means, but he had s large piece of poop in there and i didn’t clean it for about a day and i believe because his tank is uncycled it most likely...

    Betta Breathing Heavy Cant Swim

    GOOD NEWS EDIT: for anyone who notices these symptoms in a betta, take immediate action. symptoms: curling, fast and heavy breathing, loss of balance, laying at bottom. do a 50% water change and then use a test strip/ any type of water tester and check your parameters. make sure nitrites and...

    Odd New Betta Behavior?

    I recently got a new betta from petco. he looks healthy to me but he isn’t very active and he typically just swims at the top. he explores the rest of his tank but when he does he moves pretty slow. he’s eating normally and he’s in a 5 gallon. heated to 78 degrees with plants and a large rock...

    Is My Betta Dying?

    hey guys. so i have pretty much accepted the fact that my baby is going to pass soon. he is not as excited to eat/can only handle eating one or two pellets at a time before getting to tired to swim. at this point i’m just feeding him when he wants to eat. it’s very hard to make him eat when i...
