betta fins

  1. Someone help, I can't anymore...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I am on the verge of tears already. I found a blow-out (possibly) tear on my betta's anal fin. I don't get it. A sudden split usually occurs from flaring, but I didn't ever see him flare without me showing him a mirror, so it can't possibly be overflaring and I doubt he spends his entire night...
  2. Help, ragged fins (after biting)?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, this is Ciel in his tank in case that matters, it's filled with 13-14 litres of water with size-appropriate doses of Tetra PlantaMin and Tetra BettaSafe. He has two live Java ferns and one moss ball. Driftwood has been boiled in saltwater for three hours and at this point, it practically...
  3. Do these fins look okay?

    Betta Fish Care
    I've had this little guy for about eight months. He got scraggly fins at one point, so I put him in a hospital tank. He ended up living in there awhile while I tore down his old tank and planted it. His fins don't have holes in them, but they're also still a little scraggly (more so than when I...
  4. Betta fin!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a sorority with 5 female bettas in a 15 gallon tank. I put the fish in last week and they all get along no problem but I've noticed that 2 of them recently have fin damage. I put in API Betta Fix for the time being. Should I put the fish with fin damage in a separate tank until they heal...

  6. Fuzzy white spot on pectoral fin?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello everyone! My betta that I have had for 3 weeks now (Sushi) has this weird white dot on his right pectoral fin. I don't know if he had it ever since I got him or not, for a week I thought it was ick. But it has never spread and is bigger than a pin prick. I noticed today that it seems...
  7. Mufasa's Fins!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So, I have my Mufasa in a 1/2 gallon tank with a heater and a fake plastic plant. A couple of days ago I noticed that his fins were falling off, so I figured that either he was sick, or he was ripping them off on the plant. I removed the plant and changed his water. I was wondering how long it...
  8. Betta fish tail problem!!!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    HELP! I have had my male and female betta fish together for a couple months I think, in a 10 gallon and they have got along well with no problems. That is, until I added a couple snails (which I don't think would make a difference) and my brother's female betta since he wasn't taking good enough...
