Betta Diseases - Dropsy

I was recently asked to write a series of articles on betta diseases for ezinearticles. I have been raising bettas for 20+ years, and love their beauty and personality.

This article covers DROPSY, and can be found here ...

here is an excerpt ...

"Dropsy in any fish, but especially the Betta, is a fairly uncommon disease. It is actually a symptom of a bacterial infection causing bloating and bloody eyes.The fish's scales will turn perpendicular from the body, like the cones of a pine. This is a rather serious affliction and can lead to death if not treated properly. Let's take a look at Dropsy, one of the deadliest Betta diseases."

Dropsy, like almost all betta diseases, can be caused by poor water quality and tank maintenance. I strongly urge those of you who are serious about improving the quality of life for your bettas to get a Betta Care Manual, and keep handy. It can triple your betta's lifespan.
