curled fins

  1. Help, fin curls and holes in a biter betta?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Help! Ciel is a tail biter and I'm trying to get him stop. I thought I did already for a few days, but then I came home to a lot of new damage. I think it might be because I skipped a meal today. I had to be away from home the entire day because there was a really important conference, so I fed...
  2. Betta has a white spot on top of his head and some small ones on his body

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta fish has this white dot on his head as well as some tiny ones on his body that can only be seen up close. I first noticed it when I was putting him into my tank when I got home from the pet shop. At first I thought the dot on the head was just a scale that had lost its colour but now...
  3. Crown tail with curling fins

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got my crown tail male in December. Ever since I got him, the tips of his fins have been curling a bit, but they seem to be more so now, including his pelvic fins which were less curled before. (sorry for the blurry photos, he wouldn't hold still) I don't think it's fin rot or biting since...

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey guys, I recently purchased a male Red VT from Petco who has some pretty badly curled fins, and a gill cover that is constantly poking outward. he acts way more lively than my only other betta in the past.. but I want to make sure little Tibodeux (Tibbers) lives as happily and long as...
  5. Curled Top Fin

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I've had my betta for about a year and a half. I got him when he was a baby and he'd pretty big now. His top fin was always open like a fan and all good. But I just noticed now that this top fin is curled over and he doesn't lift it at all. He is a half moon betta. Is there something wrong...
  6. Curled ventral/pelvic fins?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    This is my mom's fish, Elon. He's had these super curly ventral fins as long as we've had him. Is that just the way he is or could it be because of some sort of problem? Thanks for any/all help!
  7. Concerned about tail shredding/curling, pictures included

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I'm a relatively new betta owner, I've had Thomas for a little over 3 weeks, initially in a .5 gallon cube from petco, now I've learned the error of my ways and have had him in a 2.5 gallon tank for the past 2 weeks. I am concerned that there has been some deterioration of his fins. One...

  9. Genetic or Stunted?

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have a betta (you may have heard of my Blue DevilFish) who I would really love to reproduce. Mostly because he's beautiful, but also because, as the creature who called me back to the species, I am especially fond of him and think it would be fitting to make him my first "DaddyFish" I have...
  10. Curled Fins, Slow, Sad looking D:

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I feel so terrible, because I bought him during a spur of the moment type thing. Usually I do research, but I had a goldfish before so I thought I was ok. He had curled fins when I got him, but they were spread out and pretty, so I got him. He was a little shy, but lively. He ate as soon as I...
  11. ventral fins curled on HM because of his habits?

    Betta Fish Care
    I have a halfmoon.. err super delta... I paid a HM price for him at Petco though... (still irritated about that can you tell? They wouldn't believe what I was saying, but I still really wanted the little guy so I got him.) Anyway When I got him his ventral fins had a slight curl to them. I put...
  12. Crowntail with curled fins - question!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I read about the fin curling and it isn't the cause that I'm wondering about - I know for a fact it's probably the Ph which is at 8. So here's what I wanna know: How should I bring down the Ph safely? I'm extremely hesitant to use chemicals because I've read on the packaging that the stuff is...
  13. curled fins. soft water?

    Betta Fish Care
    Antione's fins are curled and i know hard water can cause that but if i remember correctly, the last time i got my water checked the hardness was either 150 or 180 and i was told that that was soft... so what else could it be? he still has one straight ray (hes the crowntail in my avatar)... so...

    ive had Antione for 2 weeks now, hes been eating fine and for the most part, acting normal (see my other recent threads), but hes never flared. my first betta did every time i held the camera up to him or showed him a mirror, but Antione doesnt. his fins are always slightly spread. his little...
