I keep him in his own tank.1 gallon cleaned every 4-5 days.I had him in a 2.5 gallon tank but he freaked out.He looked and acted so scared.So I put him back in a 1 gallon tank and he was fine.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

I love bettas! He's pretty. I'm impressed that he's 2 years old. I had my last Betta fish for about a year. I've had my current Betta, Bubbles, for almost 9 months. He moved with us half-way across the country in a little tiny travel tank by my feet in the car. When I bought Bubbles at Petco, the salesperson told me that she's had her Betta for something like 6 years, isn't that crazy? I hope Bubbles does that well! I found a lot of great info on taking care of Bettas over on http://www.bettatalk.com/.

If he's not eating his regular food, try freeze-dried bloodworms. Bettas love those!

He needs a fungicide to kill the fungus and heal his tail and fins. Water changes alone will not take care of it.

I can never get a decent pic of mine. He's a crown tail too but his color is so amazing... it changes depending on the angle your looking at him from.

I hope you can work out what's wrong with his fins.

Looks like a case of finrot has eaten his tail you can get medicine an anti fungal one or there is one especially for finrot which is good reay works and the tail will grow back



that was palmer after his tail grew back

He's pretty! Too bad about the tail, I hope it gets better.

As you are treating the fin rot, do remember to raise the temperature of his water with a heater, gradually if you're not already using a heater... Don't boil him though!
