vet? o-o you're lucky enough to have a vet that sees fish? :U honestly, i'd check out some of the stickies, see if he has ick, or something, and treat yourself. an aquatic vet might cost you a good bit. x-x

That looks just like Buddha's color, and he has little spots all over him as well, so yea, he's fine.

I'm just crazy and I've memorized just about every inch of my fish, so that if ANYTHING seems wrong, I know precisely where to look.

Here is a link the anatomy of the betta so you're able to pinpoint the parts of his body in case you're confused again :)

Also, post in the disease section about itching. Vets cost money, and from what I know about your parents, they wont like that...

What is he doing that makes you say he's trying to itch himself?

(also, hi - I think your little fish is looking pretty good, how's the water changes going?)

its not ick, and my mom's friend is a vet (for land and aquatic animals) I'll see him to see what might be the itching

I don't think that would be possible. Your parents would probably say no. If your fish were sick, we could just tell you the cure.

water changes are a bit hard, my betta is faster now, and my fish does a "I'm itchy" dance.

King Dedede: I'm itchy! *does "I'm itchy" dance*

Me: *tries to look for the problem but fails* I can't see the problem

yea... about that...

my parents don't believe the internet, only sometimes they do... I think it would be better to go to a vet where they believe someone. I signed up for this website to help people and their bettas. I never figured out my parents would not believe anyone on the internet... but still, this is a fun place to learn betta stuff!! I'm gonna stay on this site 4ever

Unless you die. JK!!! No ones gonna die. So when you mean itching, is he like shaking or like darting in the tank?
