    Hello everyone, I have had my betta fish Zezu for 2 years now. He seems to have developed a disease a few months ago, probably around December. It started out as scales turning light grey and shiny then developed into a wound that had white flesh. It has progressively gotten worse but I have...

    Long story short, a series of minor tank cataclysms has ended up giving my poor betta an infection, but I can't tell whether it's fungus or cotton wool disease (which is bacterial). The infection was minor at first, so I was going with conservative treatment, but it exploded overnight and my...

    I bought Nico in January as a baby betta fish, so she (I'm pretty sure she's a girl, the downside of choosing a gender specific name) is just about nine months old. I have her in a five gallon tank with a tank heater and small filter, and up until a few days ago she's been doing pretty good. A...

    My husband has had a betta for a year now, we were in the process of moving and both of us got lazy taking care of the betta. We were also novices, so no heater, no filter, nothing. When we moved, back in June, I noticed Zurkzees had what I believe was fin rot. He is a half moon, so having...

    I've had my Betta for about three weeks at this point (double tail male). I noticed when i bought him that his stomach was [I]slightly[I] swollen, however I thought that was just because he was recently fed (the store gives them freeze dried bloodworms, i thought bloating). However, the...

    My female betta has been sick for about 3 wks now. She seemed to have fungus (white cottony film), she was staying at the bottom of the tank, her dorsal fin looked smaller (which was of course fin rot), and she was not really eating. I took her to pet smart and the worker and I decided it was...
