    I bred my betta fish (yellow hellboy male and koi galaxy female) last summer as a beginner and had a whooping 500+ babies. They are 7 months old now and a few had developed similar white lumps on the side of their bodies. I've noticed that the ones that do get the lumps are often...

    My betta ripped a fin a few weeks ago and I wasn't super concerned until this new color change yesterday. He now has an orange-ish patch on his back by his top fin that wasn't previously there, and the top section of his tail is gone and down to nubs of the same color. He's still very active...

    Hello, I have a betta who I believe to be struggling with freshwater velvet. I’m hoping to get further confirmation of my suspicions as well as the integrity of my care plan before proceeding with further treatment. At 11:30 pm last night and again at 11:30 am this morning, I added 0.4 mL of...

    You Hi! I need some help. My Betta fish is hyperventilating, won't eat, sits at the bottom of the tank, and has clamped fins. I can't see any physical damage like sores or worms. I've had him for 3 days, and I got him from a pet store. I've tested the nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia levels--...

    Hi there, I’ve had my buddy Tyson for almost a year now. I guess it was a few months ago I noticed this white spot on him, and I didn’t think much of it. The only reason I know it’s been growing is because, in comparison to when it first began, it’s bigger (so it’s growing very slowly). I’ve...

    So on Thursday last week I noticed that my betta, who I’ve had since March 2021, would only hang at the top left corner of my 10 gallon tank. At others times and later now he would hang and the bottom corners of the tank. As time past I noticed laying sideways and upside down. I also noticed...

    This is my first time using this forum so I don’t know if I’m posting this in the wrong place. I got my betta just about two weeks ago and he has been deteriorating quickly. His nitrite, nitrate, pH, ammonia, KH, and GH are all at good levels (GH could be lower but I have a water softening...

    Hi all! I adopted my first betta 8 days ago. Three days ago I noticed a small, white spot above his eye. It doesn’t appear to be fuzzy, but I’m not entirely sure. He is still eating a normal amount and is very energetic, but I’m not sure if his demeanor has changed since I’ve had him such a...

    Fish passed away this morning and I noticed these red marks/spots on face, the fish fins are naturally colored red i’m pretty sure it’s just the face. Also looks a little bloated, Id just like some thoughts on what this could be so I know for the future. Tested the water and showed it was all...

We have been putting 'Bettafix' into her tank as a precautionary measure but am not sure what to do! We have also changed her water to make sure everything is clean but am so worried...

    Hi all, We aren't very sure if it's fungus, general scale discolouration or he scraped his head in something on our betta. We left for 2 nights and came back to find it on his head. Water parameters were fine, temperature 26 degrees celcius us and was fed while we were away and a water change...

    Hi all, Betta stopped eating suddenly, so started treatment with Paraguard for a week. Other than not eating, he is fine. Swimming around, blowing bubbles, fairly active. Stopped treatment and started Prazipro cuz I thought it might be an internal parasite. Immediately noticed a white scar or...

    Recently, for the past few days my betta fish has refused to eat his food. It's been going on since friday I believe, so about 6 days now. I've had him for 9 months, and he's only had a problem with food once before because he didn't enjoy the food we were giving him (so we switched the brand)...

    Hi, something is wrong with my betta fish. So I am somewhat new to owning a fish but my girlfriend has had them before and I have done lots of research on how to properly care for them so I like to think I know what I am doing. But this I don't know what to do about. So I got my betta around two...
