    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This my first betta fish Blue. I've had him for a few month and haven't had any problems until last week or so when he started picking on my snail. Then I noticed his tail fins where a little worse for wear so i seperated them and treated Blue for fin rot. Now hes got this discolouration under...
  2. Can someone help diagnose what this is?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I recently got a new Betta fish and he is showing the same symptoms of my past two fish that have died. I don't really know how to describe it but the pictures will show you. One is when I just got him and one is now. My past two Bettas also looked like this after a while and then died soon...
  3. Disease or Normal Color Change?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello all! I got a new betta sometime last week, and I've noticed a gradual color change on his fins that are making me worry. I've never owned a white betta before, and I'm not sure how much of a color change to expect as he gets healthier, and I'm very afraid of him being sick. He has red...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I'm new to taking care of bettas. I recently got one from my school's pre-vet club fundraiser. They gave out tiny vases to go with your betta, but I thought that was a bit cruel so I went ahead and got a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater. I change the water every three days and I make sure...

  6. First time betta owner; really need some advice on helping the poor guy :/

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I am feeling awful; I think our betta is pretty sick due to my failure to do enough water changes. This is my first fish, and was unaware that 1/2 gallon tank (sold as betta tank) was way too small for him, and also I feel awful because I was only changing his water every two weeks for several...
  7. Clamped fins but no other symptoms?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! Recently I purchased a veiltail betta fish from chain pet store. He was admittedly not kept in the best conditions, having sick bettas in the compartments next to him, however he looked healthy enough so I bought him. Not long after him I noticed his fins were clamped up and he wasn't...
  8. What is wrong with my betta?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    This is my betta, Luigi. I was changing his water today and I realized he looks VERY sick. He has white spots over his eyes, his color is very, very dull, and he is barely moving. When he swims, it looks as if he is having difficulty and is somewhat spasmodic. He also did not touch his food...
