    I’ll keep the intro short since I kinda went to town on the questionnaire: My girlfriend and I liberated (bought) Jeph from an abandoned Walmart fish department that was removed less than a month later. His health has never been great but seems to be declining quickly with a rough case of fin...

    Discovered this dark spot on my betta's body Thursday evening. Added salt to his water but I don't think it has improved. Is it body rot or something else? He's currently in a small 2liter tank.. I was gonna have him share a sub-divided 24 liter tank with another betta, but I don't want to put...

    I was at walmart just now and I found a male crown tail better with severe body rot. I bought him and some clove oil in case I have to euthanize him, but I'm going to try to save him. I have a spare 5 gallon tank with a heater and a filter, as well as a bowl from my less experienced days of...

    I got 3 betta from Petsmart in early November 2015. One has fin rot (red) and the other (blue) has fin rot that I now think is body rot. Red above has fin rot on his top and tail fins, it's progressing rapidly. His tail fins are a stump. He's getting more lethargic but respond when he sees...

    I left my betta in my mom's care for about a month. In that time she didn't change his water once. He was in a 1/2 gallon unfiltered tank. I have had him back now for probably six weeks. I moved him to a 10 gallon carbon-filtered tank but he isn't doing any better. He seems to have fin and body...

    So I rescued a betta from my mom's coworker, who was just going to flush it because they can't have fish at their desks anymore. I don't know how this guy was treating to it, but I can guess pretty poorly. Housing What size is your tank? 5 gallon but he's in a 1 gal qt tank What temperature...

    Hello, I am new to this site, and am posting because my poor betta is suffering from tail/body rot. I am relatively new to betta care, and saved this fish from a wedding centre piece. Due to the fact I am new with fish disease, I did not notice a white spot developing on the base of his body at...

    I came home for summer break last Friday (I go to boarding school), and when I got home, one of my Bettas had severe Fin Rot. I treated her tank with Tetracycline, Maracyn+, and Melafix, along with Aquarium Salts. Since then, I stopped treatment because all it did was make the water yellow (and...

    Hi everyone. My baby Haru has a really terrible case of fin rot, and on his belly fin I believe it's progressed to a bit of body rot. I've been trying to fight it off for a while now, but obviously not as aggressively as I should have, since I let it get this far. Last week I realized just how...

    Doktor Mabuse had some fin rot for the past week. Starting on Friday, I've been treating him with aquarium salts (I used BattaFix before, but I am displeased with the results and some things I've learned since). I left for work today, and when I returned a slightly transparent section of his fin...

    My betta fish (named Birthday Fish) started out with what I believe to be cotton wool disease. I treated him with API's Tetracycline and while the cottony growths are gone, he has extensive fin and body rot. I've begun his second course of treatment as this too requires this antibiotic...he just...

    Hi everyone. I have a betta fish who I've had for about 11 months. When I first got him I was very misinformed by the pet shop and had him in a tiny bowl. He one day turned brown and I figured out it was from being too cold so I got him a nice large tank with a few plants and 2 apple snails. I...

    Just yesterday I noticed a small white spot on my Betta's tail - at first I thought it was just a normal color change that was a sign he was becoming old. But then, his ENTIRE tail started to get eaten away and I was getting worried- I did a lot of research and realized it was most likely...
