  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've noticed this in both of my fish before I even get started and I don't know whether it's because they're both white fish or what, but there's something going on. Both of my Betta were white when I bought them. The first one, Yukine, I've had since Valentine's Day of this year, and the...

    Hi, I woke up yesterday morning to find that my Betta's eye was swollen and that his body was slightly bloated. He's resting a lot on his hammock and plant a lot, and occasionally on the bottom. Every couple minutes he frantically gulps air swimming up rapidly from the bottom or takes a huge...

    I recently bought my first Betta fish and I am very unexperienced. He was living in a small bowl for about 2 weeks with no filtration or heater (the lady at the pet store told me this was ok) then, I learned how cruel it is and got him a 5.5 gallon tank with a heater and filter. However, on his...

    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 have a year old male betta. I just got back from camp and my dad has been feeding him. I noticed that his belly was swollen. Is it dropsy or swim bladder disorder? I changed his water and I keep him in a 1 gallon tank with a filter but no heater. I usually feed him 4 pellets twice a...

    Hello everyone, I've had my betta, Neptune, since last Saturday. He hasn't been eating at all..even when I offer him food. Currently, he's in a 1.5 gallon tank with gravel, a plant, a log, and a filter. I've bought a heater and it's in the mail. I'm really worried that he's sick. After I came...
