  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta has recently developed red swollen gills and this evening I discovered fin rot. I really want to treat him before he gets worse! Background: I've had my betta for more than a year now. I've had him in a 3 gallon tank but this January I got a 20 gallon tank. He was moved to that and has...

    Hi, I have a 10 gallon aquarium for my fish, Willie. I have been through so many filters but they have all ended up being so loud. For example the one I have in his tank right now is the Tetra Internal Power Filter which is supposed to be very quiet but mine sounds horrible. I even cleaned out...

    Hi, I have a platinum white half moon betta. I’ve had him for over two years so he is pretty old. He lives in a 10 gallon aquarium but I just recently moved him to a 5.5 quarentine tank due to his fin rot. I read somewhere that elderly bettas can get chronic fin rot and never get better. I...

    Hi there, has anyone got the same tank and biorb thermostat? Sadly reading a lot of bad amazon reviews but have also been highly recommended the heater. I’ve not had my heater turned on as it’s been so warm but the Temp is just on the lowest limit so I’ve put it to 22 to boost within the...

    I’ve had my betta since mid-April, and all was going well until its fins started to show signs of damage. I thought it was the live plant at first so I took it out and put another one in (the first plant had driftwood) but I’ve been thinking maybe it bit it off. And now it had this injury on...

    The tank I am purchasing comes with no lid and I'm hoping to place my aquarium on a stable shelf with a moderate amount of light. the dimensions of my tank are 12 x 6 x 8 inches. Should I be concerned about not having a lid? Are there lids with LEDs that will fit a tank with my dimensions? Will...

    Hello, I just purchased a betta from Petco today. He seemed fine in the store and was a pale grey color. He was pretty active compared to my other options so I didn't think he was sick. However, after only a couple of hours in his new tank (cycled 2.5 gallon with a filter and heater). He began...

    Hi everyone, This is my first post on this forum. My betta is about 1.5 years old and is currently in a 2.5 gallon heated, filtered tank. He started developing a small bump on his side. He still acted normal, eating, flaring, swimming about. In the last week he just lays at the bottom of...

    Hey all, I'm new to this community and very concerned about my betta fish Lex. Hes always had this lump near his end, but since i got him (2 months ago), his lump wasnt as big and i thought it was nothing to be worried about like a birth mark or something. Now 2 months in, his lump has almost...

    Hey guys, I just got Chrysanthemum yesterday! He seemed happy on his new 4 gallon tank, 80 degree temp, and new filter. Yesterday I fed him twice, when I got him (at 12:00pm) I fed him 3 pellets, then again around 7:00pm I fed him 4 pellets and he ate him just fine and quick. Today on the...

    I've had my betta fish Blu for a couple months. He's been pretty active. I rarely see him at the bottom of the tank. However yesterday I noticed that his face was turning from a navy blue (hence the name) to a gold color. I looked online & decided to clean out his tank. I cleaned it out & put...

    I bought a betta fish back in May. He's all white, beautiful fins & I really really like him. He used to swim around a 1 gallon tank but then I changed him to a 3 gallon for some extra space. His tank has plastic plants, rocks, a light, and heater to keep the temp at a solid 79-80 degrees. I've...
