I thought kidney failure was severely painful to bettas? Anyway,maybe it's a genetic thing?

Unfortunately, aside from taking him to a vet, I'm not sure what else might help. You could PM OFL on the bettafish.com forum and see if she has any suggestions. Her experiance and knowledge far exceeds mine :)

Good Luck... I'm glad Rocko's not in any serious pain, but his belly is extremely worrisome...

Update: He had a long stringy poop! See my thread about it here: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/b...rasites-69706/

Maybe we'll finally have an answer soon.

That looks like what my female betta had, before I put her on Jungle anti-parasite food....

That may not be his only problem, though... his belly is very big...

Unhappy

Rocko passed away this morning, after a long illness that started pretty much immediately after we got him from PetSmart.

Thank you so much for all of your help with Rocko.

Oh, I'm so sorry. It happens though. If u do choose to keep another fish, I'd take it down and REALLY CLEAN it. Sorry again.

I'm really sorry to hear that. :( At least he's not feeling any pain or suffering.
