    I'm very worried about my fish! Basically I put him in my 2.5 gallon tank about three days ago and his stomach seems a tad swollen. I fed him two days ago with three pellets of omega one betta buffet. The next night I noticed his stomach seemed a tad swollen? not big like infection just a tad...

    Hey everyone, I am asking for help for my Betta Redd (crowntail). I currently have a thread going on about reoccurring fuzz on his fins (Please Help with Crowntail. Reoccurring Fin Fuzz). But I am running into other issues now. His fin issue seems to be resolved and his fins are growing back...

    I treated my betta for constipation yesterday by the "Pea" method. He pooped after I gave him the pea but the bloat hasn't quite subsided. I've been fasting him and I haven't seen him poop (probably because I haven't been feeding him?). If his bloat doesn't subside and he does not defecate...

    I bought a new female betta on Monday. She was eating plenty and swimming a bunch the first day in her new tank. Her second day, Tuesday, she hid in her castle and would not come out for food. I noticed her belly to be a bit bloated. She was still active, though, and swam around. However, today...

    My little girl ate part of that crunchy piece of the freeze-dried worms, lots of the worms have these parts and I try my best to make sure she doesn't get one, but she did, and I couldn't get it from her mouth in time. She had extreme difficulty swallowing, and swam awkwardly for a while after...

    Hello! My poor HMDT, Leonardo, is a little bloated. I'm worried he's constipated. I went on vacation for ~5 days and my parents fed my fish; I think they over fed him. The boys eat a mixture of freshly frozen blood worms/brine shrimp and omega one betta buffet pellets. Quick Info (I'm sorry...

    I am currently treating my veil tail for fin rot, I have him on jungle and have two teaspoons of salt in my 2-2.5 gallon tank, but I only started this yesterday. Last night, in addition to his fin rot, he was having trouble swimming. He was floating on one side and it was so bad that he was...

    Hey peoples. So the other day I noticed Norman floating around on the surface and tilting to the side. Quite odd for a fish, so I looked it up, discovered it could be a swim bladder thing or constipation. So we fasted him for a day. He was so much better, swimming like normal, hanging out at...

    Hello, recently my Betta fish seemed a little constipated and was having buoyancy issues. This was causing him to float to the top on and kind of stay on his side sometimes. I'm pretty sure this happened due to overfeeding since I made a mistake and accidentally served him an extra meal. So...

    My halfmoon male has always been a little huffy in that you can see him breathing noticeably faster than my other two boys. He's had fin rot for a couple of months now, it took me a while to gather the courage to try something more proactive than more frequent water changes. The fin rot is...

    My betta, a beautiful pinkish, silverish, purplish (he was sold as a "half-moon betta) has a tendency of staying on the bottom of the tank. I've read some articles about swim bladder disorder and how too much freeze dried food can cause it, but I haven't even fed him any. Yet. And also...

    So I'm pretty sure I'm dealing with SBD in Mr. Squishy :-( He is a double tail with a crooked spine. We got him about 2 weeks ago to go into my daughter's 20g tank. 3 days ago, we found him bloated and swimming at the top of his tank, acting pretty normal except a bit freaked out about not...

    If I watch her from my bed, she can't see me and goes pale and striped (horizontal). But if I put my face close to the tank, she comes and looks and me and becomes vibrant again. I leave my room often, and I'm at school for a lot of the day. I'm worried about her being stressed while I'm gone...

    I posted about my poor Betta elsewhere not so long ago, describing my constant troubles keeping my Teddy Salad healthy. Lately things have taken an extreme turn for the worse. In the middle of treating Mr. Salad for fin rot with aquarium salt (with some successful regrowth), he started showing...
