    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies

  2. Male Betta is lethargic with stiff fins

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi Betta People, I'm brand new to Betta ownership. A friend got me a male Betta as a gift. My son named it "Power Fish." I received it in January. It's in a large vase that I'm guessing is around 1.5 gallons which came with some live plants that are rooted in this sort of mossy/cotton ball...

    Hi, I've been trying to keep an eye on my betta over the last week or so (he started exhibiting symptoms maybe five days ago after a water change).

  6. Little White Bump?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    He's doing much better in general. He stresses about everything, but recently he's limited himself to only shredding his fins if I make huge changes to the tank (which I try not to any more). He used to be agitated, surfing the glass all the time, speeding from one end of the tank to the other...
