    I had my Bettas spawn on 17 of September. Two months later I moved the fry in a bigger tank. There were 60 of them.

    So my betta is almost a year and a half old. About 6 months ago, he got fin rot, so he's pretty much just a body now (it's pretty sad :-( ) but he seemed healthy until recently. He won't eat (or even look at food) and he sits at the bottom of the tank all day. He doesn't react to my finger or...

    My Betta, Toby, has had a white patch on his tail for almost a week. My dad first noticed it and thought it could a bacterial infection.
