I just got a betta 2 days agao from PetSmart. He was staying in the bottom of the container but moved around still. I just thought that he was stressed because he has large fins and in that small cup for who knows how long. Went and got him a tank with a filter and light, stones from the bottom, a resting leaf, red fake plant for him to hide around and a black oriental style decoration. When I got home I had noticed he was not swimming around at all in the cup (was still setting up his tank) so I looked up what may have been wrong with him and all I could find was possible swim bladder disorder or disease. Looking at this thread now I am scared he may have whatever this is. He has a black head and he faces to a very dark rich blue (his name is Cobalt) and if this disease affects blue bettas I am scared he has it. What are the early warning signs so I know how long he has and how long I can keep him comfortable and as happy as I can make him? He is also not eating or moving much now and seems to have trouble getting to the surface even with the filter off. Please any help with anything that may be wrong with Cobalt will me so much

Edit: I went to check on Cobalt and he had what I can best describe as a seizure and fell to the bottom of his tank and stopped moving

Guys, I need help with this disease. It the same type of concept as Graphite, but it's different. Other than it being non contagious, I want to know if it's the same type of thing?
The fins rots away, but it's not black, I made a thread on it:

I understand I seem like those people who must post about their pretty fish all the time, but I think new diseases are more important. Help?

Wow. This just punched me in the face - I just realized this is what my poor VT Atlas died of in November. I was so sad and shocked that it happened so fast - in just a couple hours. Unfortunately I flushed him...

I've been reading about this, and please don't laugh - but I really think heavy metal contamination is going on here at least in part. Google geoengineering one word just like that, our entire environment is being contaminated by aluminum and its sprayed in such minute particulate that its being absorbed into marine life and fish in the wild are showing symptoms of this. I think it self replicates. I know thats science fiction creepy but that's what I think. Our natural environment is not so natural, any more.

Test him for aluminum, that's what I say.

Is this mystery disease?

Hi there, my blue betta Drogo isn't looking good. He was fine yesterday flaring and swimming well. But this morning I notice his pectoral fin and the tissue around it is dark gray and looks necrotic. He's not using the fin at all. I haven't noticed any fungus on him recently, he's been doing great in his planted, cycled, divided 10g (filtered, heated, I keep up with water changes and gravel vac). Water params are perfect. I removed him from the tank and took this photo. I'm worried for my tank and the snails, shrimp, and other Betta in the tank. Is this mystery disease? Columnaris? I don't know what I should do next. This really sucks, I really like this fish. Thanks.

I made a post about this recently, it killed my betta. Oh man... that's scary. Unfortunately, I can't submit his body because I already buried him.
