    Hi, I wanted to ask how to get rid of fungal infection. My betta had some fin rot so I did a salt treatment, but during the salt treatment a fungal infection appeared on his body which is odd because most people say salt helps cure fungal diseases in fish. His tank is at 75 degrees F right now...

    My friend has a king male betta that she’s had for a year. Earlier this week he suddenly was staying at the bottom of the tank and wasn’t very active. She noticed a white patch on his head under his eye and I first i though it might be ich but the spot was large. So I assume it’s a bacteria or...

    Hi guys, I got Alpha as a Christmas gift last year. She was a baby girl when I got her and was mostly black with a little bit of red on her fins. Now she's red and blue and is very active, but I've recently noticed that the tip of her tail is translucent and seems a little tattered. She eats...

    Hi all. As you can see from my post history, I'm a new member and my betta just died. I'm very sad, and I wasn't planning on getting a new one anytime soon - I thought I would dismantle my tank, clean it out, maybe do a fishless cycle this time, and generally try to make everything perfect...

    Hi everyone, I've had my male betta, Finn, for a year now and have had no problems until a few months ago when the tank I kept it in (3 gal) started growing algae. I tried deep cleaning, doing water changes, and using algae treatment to make it stop but it kept growing back, but I had to move...

    I bought a betta about 1 week ago. He obviously had SB issues, and I didn't think they would help him. I brought him home, put him in a heated tank, and did the deed... the deed being fasting for 3 days and feeding part of a pea on day four. He did fine with that. When he still didn't show much...

    I apologize in advance. I could not get my image links to work to save my life so I just placed them in here. I've had my half moon, Yukine since my boyfriend bought him for me as a Valentine's Day present. When I picked out this specific fish, he had an issue with damaged fins and being a...

    I have a bit pf an issue. I have a three gallon planted tank that is infested with fungus (ich?). Decim is my fourth betta to be infected with it in the tank.

    I just bought my dumbo halfmoon betta about two weeks ago. He had been doing fine until a few days ago when I noticed he was starting to lose his color. When I bought him, he didn't have any color but the woman who was helping me pick a fish said that was because he was young. I took him home...

    Hello! My name is Miranda and I am still fairly new to this website! I just noticed some white spots on my Betta's head. I am not sure exactly what it is. I'm new to bettas as well and I just want to make sure he's healthy. Housing: How many gallons is your tank? 2.5 gallons Does it have a...

    My boyfriend and I just got a betta a couple weeks ago. When we first got him he had a small pale patch on his head but we thought it was just apart of his coloring, as he had lots of colors when we first got him. Then we noticed he started turning more white, it spread to his body, and now the...

    Hi, I'm relatively new to the betta world. About a week again I purchased a betta from a pet store, he wasn't in very good condition, but it seems to have slightly deteriorated since. He now has clamped fin, and slight colour loss. I'm wondering what the cause could be. It could be stress, as we...

    I recently bought a betta fish from Wal-Mart. It was a very spur of the moment decision but I felt extremely sorry for the sickly little guy. Since purchasing him he has been living in a heated and filtered 6.5 gallon tank and his condition seems to have improved, however upon purchase I noticed...

    So I started noticing my betta developing grey spots under his chin, but I sort of shrugged it off at first because he changes colors a lot, until he started getting white spots. He has about 4 white lumps on his body now and I thought it was fungus and I treated him for that last week but it...

    Hello all, I'm in a bit of a tough situation. My red VT has always been a fin biter but his fins have always grown back with ease and I've had no problems with fin rot. My new marble HM has some pretty severe fin rot and I've began treating it with Bettafix. My VT is thriving from the betta fix...

    I've had my betta for about a month now, and everything was fine until today. When I woke up this morning, my betta had lost almost all its color. It was pretty terrifying, since her colors had become a vibrant red and blue over the last month. I immediately did a 100% water change. I had moved...

    Hi everyone, Any help would be much appreciated! Some background info about my little guy: I've had him for close to 4 years (so I have no idea how old he was when I got him from the pet store, he wasn't a baby) and I noticed on Sunday that he has what looks like a wart on his face near his...

    Today, I noticed that one of my beta's gills are sticking out. After doing lots of research I've come to the conclusion that it has an inflamed gill. What can I do to help him? Please answer!
