  1. Betta Fish Care
    Today I noticed this discolored patch of scales on one side of my betta, what is it? I put some “Betta Fix” drops in the tank (something I got at petco) which have helped with betta illnesses ive expierienced in the past, but I have never seen something like this before. What caused it and what...

    my betta cosmic is a blue butterfly betta. A couple months ago he was living in a 5 gallon community tank with a couple guppies and aquatic frogs (I know the tank is really small for that, but I didn’t realize at that time.) His fin rot was pretty mild at the time that I noticed, his color...

    I have recently come under the temporary ownership of a male blue veiltail betta fish. He is super thin, has trouble eating, appears to have issues swimming (moving the later half of his body and tail) and overall doesn't seem to be doing well. Today I moved him into a 2.5 gallon tank with a...

    I’ve always been impressed with how generous this community is, and being new to fish keeping, I know you all are far more knowledgeable than I. My little desk buddy, Jin, has a lesion on his back at the base of his dorsal fin. Since we look directly at each other for hours every day, I am in...

    I noticed that my beta fish sharky has been sporadically darting around in his tank. Yesterday I noticed that he had gotten a brownish/gold spot on his fin. He has a history of getting fin rot and tail biting, but I have never seen a spot like this appear before. I read online about a disease...

    Hello!! I’ve had this betta for a few weeks now, and she’s had a lump under her stomach since the evening I got her; while at the store, I didn’t notice, and then suspected it for constipation or the care she had at the store. However, I haven’t noticed it getting better, and I’ve begun to...

    I've had my veil tail betta for a month now, and last week I noticed fin rot. It turned so bad he was always lethargic and barely moved. We used Jungle Fungal fizz tabs for the recommended five days, and he was doing a lot better. Today however,he is back to being lethargic and has clamped fins...

    About a week ago I noticed my male Betta was becoming extremely lethargic in his 20 gallon planted tank where it is him and several Ottos at about 82 degrees. I have had him for about 7 months and he use to be extremely active. In case it was fish TB i moved him to a 5 gallon with 3/4 side...

    I just started getting into the Betta world and I’ve had mine for over a year now and I’ve never had a problem. But recently I gave him a tank upgrade and I noticed his fins started getting more jagged around the ends. I think it might be fin rot but I’m not sure, any idea how I can treat it?
