    I'm not sure if this is an injury/emergency or not but this post can be removed or moved if it should not be in this part of the forum by a moderator. :) One of my baby bettas, Peony, has what looks like a bump or some sort of marking on her head. It's an x-mark within a triangle-shaped area...

    Hi everyone, So just this morning as I was feeding George I noticed this bump looking thing right on like the top and edge of his gill flap. You can’t really see in the pictures, but it has a ever so slight yellowish tint, and it sticks out a little bit, kind of bending his gill flap. I don’t...

    Hi! This is my beauty Auggie. I have had her for just under a year and she is the queen of my 10 gallon planted mini community tank. Within the past week or so, I noticed this strange bump on her side that is not going away. Auggie is very prone to injury as she purposefully wiggles herself into...

    Hey all :) So to start…I post on here a lot, sorry😅 Anyway, my little guy has really been slowing down recently. He sits in the same spot at the top of the tank most of the time, right in between the glass and his floating log, or just floating nearby his floating log, kinda resting on it. He...

    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...

    My husband and I started to get into the fish hobby earlier this year with fish like a gourami, lots of platys, minnows, and mystery snails, all in our 55 gal community tank (upgraded from a 29 gallon). We haven't really had to deal with much concerning fish diseases, up until we got a Betta...

    My betta has a small discolored bump on his ventral fin. I’m wondering if he got caught on something and/or it’s possibly infected. Has anyone else experienced this? His other fins look healthy otherwise. Also I just did a 40-50% water change 30 minutes before I took the reading, so I’m not sure...

    I'm brand new to the forum and betta fish in general, but I have been treating my friend's VT betta fish, Mo, for a few weeks now, and I could use some advice. He developed some new problems in just a few days time recently and I am at a loss as to how to help him out. Mo has had what appears...

    Hi folks, I was wondering if someone could take an educated guess as to what this bump might be on my peppered cory. Please let me know if and how I should treat him for this bump. Thanks for your help! Here are my responses to the fish questionnaire: What size is your tank...

    Hi! My precious fish that i've had for about a year now has some sort of bump on him.It's a different color than the rest of his scales. He is still acting normally, eating fine, and responding to when I come near the tank. It's raised up a bit, and if it's something serious I want to catch it...

    Our female betta, Firefly began flashing a week and a half ago, but no signs of ich at that point. I thought maybe velvet so just to be on the safe side I used 5 days of Marineland All-In-One-Remedy, removed filter, covered the tank from light and kept it close to 84-86 degrees. After 5 days...
  15. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi all, I noticed yesterday that my female betta fish has a lump on one side of its body. No behavior changes or anything at all, just the bump. I've looked around on this website and the internet and it's interesting to see that most bumps have appeared on the left side of betta fish, as did...

    I do water changes once a week, then a scrubbing every other week. But for the past few weeks my tank has stayed persistently cloudy. I'm not sure why, it's never done this before. I'm hoping it has something to do with the filter, which I'll be changing tomorrow. I've had the same sponge filter...

    Hey everyone, I have a betta named Redd (Crowntail). I have had him since March I believe. After I got him he was placed in a ten gallon with safestart to cycle his tank. After two weeks his tank was cycled and he appeared fine. He went weeks (months) with no issues until I saw he snagged...
  19. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    It looks like a little pimple right where his tail fin meets his body. It doesn't seem to be interfering with his movement or bothering him at all, but I want to catch and treat it before it (potentially) gets serious. It's been just a tiny, barely visible bump for a couple weeks now, and I...
