  1. Blind Betta Care

    Betta Fish Care
    I recently purchased a double halfmoon male, who is a beautiful light blue and clear color. He looked perfectly healthy, but when I brought him home he had a lot of trouble dealing with the current in the three gallon tank he was bought for. I took the filter out, but as I observed him (Named...
  2. Help my betta fish is dying!!!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta fish is dying! :cry: Slowly, but surely he's deteriorating. I started noticing changes around last month. That's when I had finally gotten everything required for a betta tank. (For awhile he had been in a bowl, I know I know. Horrible. But I had stupidly listened to the pet-store...
  3. Incurable Popeye

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I have a betta fish that has had popeye ever since I rescued him nine months ago. When I received him, he was living in a plastic, 1 gallon bowl that was rarely cleaned. The bowl had no filter or heater. My fish now lives in a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater, a filter and a snail. I have...
  4. Blind, Sick, or Something Else?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I've recently noticed a big behavior change in my little betta, and I don't know what to do at all. I don't really know how long ago these symptoms started, but I assumed everything was relatively normal until a few days ago. About a week ago, I noticed that he would not recognize my...
  5. Java Moss made my males blind??

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I had purchased some Java Moss clumps the other day, washed them, and put them in my 20g tank for my two king betta males. I literally did this last night and now, not 30minutes ago, I saw that they both have developed blue eyes from their original black. I thought it was odd and tried to get...
  6. Betta fish gone blind?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta fish attempts to eat his pellets, but he is unable to get the pellet into his mouth. He doesn't seem to be able to see the pellet as he does not swim near it unless you put your finger into the water. When you look at his eyes, they seem normal, so I am unsure if this is blindness or...

    I've NEVER owned a betta before! SO...... I went to Petco to get my first betta, and I saw this super cute doubletail cellophane(?) betta with red eyes so I took him home. His name is Eskeletito :) I will try to post a better picture of him after he is transferred. I bought a 3 gallon tank...
  8. Anyone ever have tankmates with a blind betta?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I've been considering tankmates for my 10g betta tank for months now and I think I've finally decided on a small rasbora, preferably the Phoenix Rasboras. However, my betta Kirei is going blind because of his dragonscales. Has anyone had tankmates with a blind betta before? Advice? He's not...

  10. Blind betta is starving. Not sure what to do

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So, I just discovered a couple months that my little Dean is blind. For a while, he would just swim up to the top and miss his food, but I could stick my finger above the food and he would catch it. But now, he will rarely swim up to the top and just lays on the bottom of his bowl. I've made it...
  11. Disease spreading rapidly!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone, My poor guy has had a discolouration on the top of his head for quite some time now. In the last few days, it has completely spread to cover his face and his right eye. I believe his right eye is blind now as he has trouble with coordination when it comes to eating and his...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello guys. While in Petco today, on the front shelf, I noticed this beautiful iridescent ice blue delta tail male. Upon closer inspection, I noted his eye, which is completely diamonded and is bulging out. I added two pictures for you guys, but I'm fairly certain it's popeye. However, his...
  13. Suggestions For A Blind Betta?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello, everyone! If any of you saw my first post, you'll know I own a partially blind betta. He has a very hard time seeing out of his right eye, and his left he can only see maybe a third that normal fish can. I have him in a bright, low filtered tank with turquoise smooth glass pebbles and...
  14. Blind Betta: Advice?

    Betta Fish Care
    A while back I posted a thread here about Nevermore, one of my HMs, going blind. I wasn't sure what to do with him in regards to proper care, and while I received some tips, none have really helped. He's still blind, and I still have him. He's been building nests, however, he is almost entirely...

    Hello! I've just adopted a betta from petsmart today, who appears to have no eyes. He is otherwise healthy (well, for a pet store fish anyway), but I was wonder what may have caused this (a birth deformity?), and if there are any special steps I should take in preparation for my sightless fish...
  17. Tales of a blind betta

    Journals
    So I already have one journal, but I wanted to make another specifically for my blind male CT, Bahari. He's certainly been a learning experience for me although I've only had him for a month. I've been adapting to his needs as he's been adapting to life being blind. The story: when I got him...
