    Hi everyone! I’ve had my betta, Vito, for 2 years now. He’s a koi betta, so I know he’s prone to small scale tumors. He’s living in a 10 gallon tank by himself. The parameters are within normal with the exception of salinity (more on that in a minute). He was fine until I got COVID. I was...

    Hello, I just joined this forum so forgive me if formatting is off, but my betta Algae has been bloated on one side for 2 weeks now. I am stumped as to what it could be and very worried, he has been my best friend for two years. I have completed 7 days of fasting with him, 3 days fast, one day...

    Our fish has had wasting and bloat (..not like dropsy but also not like pure constipation) for awhile. We ultimately suspected worms. Maybe camallanus. But not what we expected. Within an hour of feeding Fish fenbendazole dewormer medication, he had this thing hanging from him that sort of...

    Hi, this is my little guy Squish. I’ve had him since October 2019 with little to no health problems along the way. He is in a heated &filtered 5-gallon tank with places to hide and silk plants throughout. About 3 days ago I noticed he may have been starting to show signs of swim bladder disease...

    Stomach starting growing 2 days ago, diet is strictly BettaMin flake medley, rejects anything else. Will go up to top and bottom of tank, is perfectly active. I can’t tell if his scales are pineconed or he’s just fat. He gets fed a lot because we love him so much, maybe a little too much. Can...

    Hi guys! About two months ago I got a dumbo ear male who, since practically the first week, has been having health issues related to bloat and swim bladder disease. I started feeding him azoo flakes, but stopped after the first episode of bloat, then I gave him pre-soaked bettabit pellets (i...

    I recently returned home after 1.5 weeks away. I had a friend house and pet sitting. 2 days after I got home, my betta Fish Mooney, started swimming on his side. I thought he may have been overfed, causing the bloating, so I fasted him for 2 days thinking that would help his bloating. Then...

    Hello all, I was very excited to share a few months back that I had bought a truly beautiful betta named Lazuli from import and breeder Glee Bettas. He arrived in tip top shape and had the personality of a golden retriever - never aggressive or shy, always curious and friendly. Didn't seem...

    My Betta fish, Gustav, has been pooping in small amounts. They aren't solid brown so I am assuming he has constipation. I've been doing the Epsom salt method for a few days now in attempts to reduce his bloat. I was wondering, will peas help with constipation? I would like to hear your personal...

    Before I begin, I’d like to say that my concern has a LOT of context behind it, and I would greatly appreciate it if you read everything in my post before answering. It’s the only way to get the full details and really narrow down the possibility of TB being the culprit. On that note, let me...

    my betta has had constipation/sbd for a little over a month now. i've been trying since day 1 to get rid of it, tons of fasting, pea feeding, epsom salt bathing, diet switching. i am now doing a long term epsom salt treatment plan where he stays in quarantine under moderated epsom salt...

    My crowntail suffers from chronic SBD, most likely genetic as I've tried literally everything on the list for the past month and a half other than daphnia. (Peas, epsom salt, bacterial/parasitic medication, fasting.) My last resort is daphnia before I ultimately may have to put him to sleep...

    about a month ago, i switched my betta to flake food because i forgot to bring back his pellets from college. since then, he's had swim bladder issues for exactly a month now. the tank params are fine, and he switches between a 2.5 gal and a 5.5 gal between college/home breaks, both tanks are...

    So this is my third post, and it has been almost two months now. My betta's stomach is still severely swollen, and he has gotten bigger. It can't be comfortable for him with how large he is. The problem is that after two months, he still hasn't started to pinecone, so I'm hesitant to call it on...

    So, I posted a question a few weeks ago about my fish having an extremely bloated stomach. Since then I have bought new food for him with two proteins as the first ingredients, and it has more fiber to help him if he's constipated. I also bought some anti-parasite liquid and have started...

    So I've had my fish for over a year, he's had the occasional bloat and float, mainly due to trying to find a food that works best for him. He's also half blind so he's a high maintenance fish. He has a glass food bowl where his food falls, a heater, several silk plants and a hide away skull...

    okay so i really have no idea whats wrong with my betta fish Curtis, I got him at Walmart almost 3 months ago and he was fine, he would eat, swim around and he would always come up to me when I would feed him or when I would move my finger around the glass and when I looked into his tank...
