    Hi everyone I have a male dumbo betta who hasn’t eaten in 5 days. He is normally a very energetic fish but one day he just was on the ground not moving with his fins clamped and a left cloudy eye. It’s been 5 days now and he’s still the same. He lives in a 5 gallon tank by himself, the water...

    I have been unsuccessful in helping my betta's clamped fins. A few months ago, I was able to stop the fin rot and promote re-growth of his top fin with an aquarium salt regime. It worked wonders! However, in the past month or so, I notice him suffering again from fin rot with his other fits. His...

    I bought a beautiful white and red dragon scale betta from a pet store. Unfortunately he has clamped fins, most likely from being in the cup for so long. I was wondering what I could do to help it?

He now has clamped fin, and slight colour loss. I'm wondering what the cause could be. It could be stress, as we...

    Hello! My veil tale male betta is not a fan of his filter. I have a Tom TM1250 internal filter with the flow rate as low as can be. He is in a 2.5 gallon tank with plants and a bridge. He has a heater at 78, and before the new filter, was swimming fine. The nozzle is facing towards the glass...

    With all of her symptoms I can't figure out if it's a parasite or something else, and I don't want to over-medicate, or give her medication she doesn't need. She's not doing well, and if she doesn't get treatment soon I don't think she'll live much longer. A few days ago my female crowntail...

She became sick a few months ago...She wouldn't eat, became lethargic, became pale, and had a white patch on her right side at the base of her fin which had become clamped. I treated with Lifeguard all in one. It seemed to do the trick. She...

    I got a betta for my daughter, and originally we were sold a .6 gallon bowl. The store guy said this was fine. Brought the fish home and he was doing great in there, but I started to read about bettas and found out that the store guy was wrong. We bought the Fluval Spec 2 gallon and put the...

    I noticed my baby betta acting strange last Wednesday (3-12-14), but started getting worried two days later when I decided to do some research. It appears that he has clamped fins and possibly inflamed gills, but other than that, there are no other signs of infections (i.e. cottony patches...

    We have two Betta fish, one is an elephant year and we haven't had him for very long, the other is a half moon delta I do believe, and we have had him for probably 6 months. Our half moon is name Mahak and he has a bout of fin rot which has caused his once long tail to shorten considerably. In...
