  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I am rather new to the betta world and my current betta, Proteus, is the only one I have ever owned. I have had him for around half a year now, though I have noticed that he has some strange growth on his side. I think the lump appeared around 2 or 3 months ago, but I had assumed it was...

    Hello, Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I've actually rewritten this multiple times because it just gets insanely long, so I'm going to be super brief this time. I know I can elaborate if more information is needed. The filled out form is listed below, but here are some bullet...

    I work at a pet store that sells Bettas. We're a small store with a staff of 6 and I am the only one who takes care of them. They live in chain pet store plastic tubs that are much too small for them, and I treat their water with the store's brand conditioner and bio-boost, and throw a small...

    This is a slow-motion video of my betta boy to show his two lumps. It's not that visible on the video but it's probably never truly going to be perfect so I'm going to post this. First off, he doesn't have fin rot. His fins are incredibly heavy and they grew larger and longer than they...

    Hi folks! I posted back in early April to get your advice on a recurring pimple-like bump on my betta buddy’s chin that is open and contains what appears to be a white cyst (that post is summarized below, but the original is here...

    Hi. My betta Ziggy has a lump across the side of his body. When I point the flashlight through, it is almost completely transparent. Almost like a blister. He also has another lump on the other side. I first noticed this a few months ago. Since then they have grown bigger. His fins have...

    Hello betta fish community! This is my first time posting. I am hoping to get help with my poor friend, whom I call The King, who has been sick for over a month. My explanation is long, but please hear me out! My betta has had quite the treatment journey, so I figured it would be helpful to...

    I've had my Betta, Sweedy for a few months now. On October 25, 2015 I noticed that Sweedy's belly was bloated. It looked like bloat or dropsy. October 26, 2015 I went to PetCo and got aquarium salt and BettaFix. I also quarantined Sweedy in a 1.5 gal tank with a small filter and a small heater...

    Hi, I just found this forum, and my beta, Jean-Ralphio, is not looking good. I have had him since August 25 this year, and when I bought him, he had a lump on his side. There were scales over it, and he has acted fine. His bump (a tumor or cyst?) has been growing, but his behavior has been the...

    Evening all, I rescued a rose tail betta 4 months ago, and at the time I got him, he had a small white something poking through his scales. I posted here (link to original thread), and it was determined by lilnaugrim to likely be a cyst. When I first got him, through random happenstance, I was...

    Greetings fish people! I'm new to these forums and signed up so that I could ask this question. I currently have a betta who I got as an itty bitty baby about 2 years ago. Now my Hucklebetta Finn (AKA: Hucklebee) is a little monster. Ha ha! He is vivacious, very active, eats anything that...

    There have been several threads over cysts recently, and I think that's what is going on with one of my boys, but I wanted a second (or more) opinions! This is my boy Easter: The part I'm concerned with is the round growth to the left close under his eye. It doesn't look so bad in this...

    Somebody can help me. My little beta fish has what might be a tumor. Please see the photo I've posted. Can anyone help give me an idea of what this might be. And also what can I do to help the poor little fella. I am really worried. Any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hey Everyone, So I noticed that about 2 weeks ago my male betta had a little brownish red spot on it's back with a scale poking up. I went to the pet store and they gave me some antibiotics (API Bettafix) to treat him but I've noticed that the spot hasn't gone away and has become worse (it's...
