    Hi everyone! I noticed a white spot on my betta's back a few months ago, but didn't think much of it because he was a white/blue cellophane betta at the time of purchase. Now looking at him from certain angles I've concluded that the spot doesn't look quite right to me and it I'm growing a bit...

    Has anyone ever seen any color change like this in a betta??! I've had my betta for almost two months now. He seems really healthy. He is always actively exploring his 5 gallon planted tank and is fed twice a day except on his fasting day. Over the last two weeks I noticed his anal fins turning...

    Hi everyone! Okay, so I'm a little concerned with my boy, Squiggles. When I first got him just over a month ago, he fell quite sick with suspected swim bladder. Thankfully, that has cleared up nicely and he's been a happy boy since. However, around that time, I noticed that his tail fin...

    I feel awful because I have been allllll over this forum with this petsmart rescue hmdt betta named PB, but he's having issues. I have diagnosed him with cotton mouth with the aid of this forum, and I thought his problems were over once I got him on an antibiotic (API Triple Sulfa). Nothing...

    Hey there everybody! I need some help diagnosing my Betta Sauske. I've had him for about 3 months & recently noticed that he's been acting weird. First signs of him acting weird were him not swimming around as much & staying at the bottom of the tank. I found this very odd because he's the...

    When I got this little guy a few weeks ago, he was mostly red with some light blue scales. After examining him with a flashlight, I noticed that he had some gold iridescence and the tips of his fins are turning turquoise, but are a bit iridescent as well. Basically, he is the most spastic and...

    I've noticed my guy seems to have a white-ish look to the tips and between his fins. Is it possible this is new growth to the fins? Maybe something bad? Rot? I have looked into possible fin rot... but I think not. Pardon the rhyme. He just healed up a pinhole in his caudal he got from over...
