  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone! I recently got a Betta fish who is now set up in a 6gal tank with heater and filter. He's been in there for about a week now, and he is eating regularly, is super energetic, and seems healthy. However, I've noticed a spot on his lower fin that looks clear/white. The fin is still...

    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...

    Two days ago a bought a betta fish from Petco. Full disclosure, I’m new to the aquarium hobby and have never owned a betta before. So when I saw the fish at the store he look ok, he was alert, not laying lethargic at the bottom of the deli or floating at the surface. But by the way he was...

    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...

    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...

    Hi, Completed form below. So last week I introduced a cave-like object for my Aldo (my betta) to swim through, but I realised in a day that he was trying to swim through the small openings on top instead of under it. I also saw him get stuck and back track to release himself. I removed the...

    Hi, I'm new to the world of bettas. I got mine a couple of weeks ago and he seems to be doing great so far. However, today I noticed some small fraying/holes in his fins. I looked it up and saw something called "pinhole finrot." I've attached some pictures, but I'm afraid they're not very clear...

    I can't post a video but this is Cleetus. We have had him about a year now. He's always been rather lethargic but recently worryingly so. He lays on his side gasping all day and can't swim properly. He is bloated but even when I fast him he still is the same. I have tried swim bladder...

    My daughter's both have bettas and they both appear to be ill. Different tanks. One was purchased 4+ months ago. Everything was great until about 2 weeks ago after a water change. The tank had not been very dirty when we changed it, but after the change it almost immediately started getting...

    All of a sudden my betta fish’s one pectoral fin is very small and whithered away.. it looks like it just happened over night, I’m not too sure what happened, he hasn’t moved from one spot and if he does swim a little he doesn’t use that fin, when I give him good he just spits it back out. I’m...

    I've had my fish is since its adolescence for 3 years now and I've noticed a tear and white around the tear in his fin. I don't know if I should be concerned about this or not his fins aren't white either so it's not a part of his pattern.
