    Hi! I’m a new betta fish owner and my betta is acting off. I got him a little over a week ago, and since I put him in the tank, he’s been gliding along the glass and staying at the top of the water.

    Fin bubble on betta fish fin?

    I'm really concerned for my betta fish, Union Jack (he's red, white and blue), as there seems to be a weird white bubble on his fin. I tried to take as many pictures to show what it looks like. This is a new thing and he didn't have this like, 2 weeks ago. Can someone please help me?

    Betta changing color

    Is it normal for a Betta to be bright-colored or to have dull colors instead? I've read that wild Bettas usually look darker...but if a bright-colored Betta turns dark, it's a sign of disease/stress, right?

    Betta Fish

    So I'm new to the world of fish keeping and I'm still researching the topic of which fish to get. I want a species that isn't too demanding, is fairly easy to care of and of course, I don't want to spend a fortune. Would a Betta Fish be an okay choice?
