    Hello Everyone! I am new to the forum and fairly new to owning bettas and would really appreciate it if someone could "diagnose" my betta. His name is Gobs and I recently just moved him into a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater. I thought I was doing okay until I noticed the very ends of his tail...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My poor Colin is very ill and I don't know whats wrong. I think it all started out when I moved back to college after summer break. I don't think that the water here agreed with him so he was flashing a little and hurt himself on his plastic plant (which I have since removed after research)...
