She stopped eating and started being real lethargic and hanging at the top of the tank blowing bubbles. I took her out of the tank and put her in...

Before I...

    Hi, My poor betta has developed a white lump under his tummy that is getting bigger and slowly eating his fins from the top. It doesn't look like fin rot to me, and I'm not sure it's the cotton like disease. The water quality has been poor, I have trouble maintaining a cleaning schedule because...

    About two months ago, my CT got into a fight with my largest Rosey Red, Nana. The results were that she lost every fin and he lost every single ray extension that he had. Since then i have managed to actually save Nana, but Red has only grown back 3 extensions. After a terrible swing with Swim...

    My betta has been acting strange for about a week and a half now. I'm very scared she's going to die soon. She has maybe managed to eat 5 pellets in the past week, that was only on one day. I had to take her out of the ten gallon and put her in a half gallon which I'm keeping at 80 degrees. She...
