Beautiful betta's! The "rod" in ares could be a swim bladder infection, could be a tumor, could be a benign bump. hopefully the latter, but probably not if he is sick.

i've paid more attention now to it, and it seems to be in all of my other guys, just more prominent in him since he's the smallest. he definitely had swim bladder issues the other day when i brought him home and he's actually EXPLORING his tank now. I'm SO happy!

And now that he's better his color has changed to a darker bronze and since he's swimming around i've gotten to see his dorsal fin and it's GOLDEN with spots on it! I'll be sure to try and get some good photos of him!

Has anyone ever seen this before?
The bulge is most likely his swim bladder. It's common in more inbred strains of bettas (especially double tails, even though this guy isn't a double tail).
