    Hi Everyone, I have a blue and red male crown tail who is around 1 year old. He has had damaged fins for a while and I have struggled to find out what it is so I can treat it accordingly.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Long story short, I got my betta, Blushi, about 4 months ago and I kept him in a bowl. It seemed like he was unhappy so I moved him into a 10g filtered tank.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I've had my baby betta since March. She was always active with a massive appetite. I keep her in a 1 gallon tank, no filter but I do 25% water changes every couple of days and clean out any debris daily. There are no plants or gravel in the tank, just a few marbles. I went from feeding her...

I put aquarium salt into the new water, but around two hours later his fin looked worse and now a rather large piece is hanging off. The edge is...
