  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have had my Heinz for a month almost to the date. I canā€™t remember if he always had this but I think I would have noticed. I started to notice when he stopped shutting his mouth, which he always did at first. I tried to look it up and just find ick or cotton mouth. This is just white ring or...

    Just cleaned my fishes tank and I checked in on him and his eyes are clouded and seem to be a bit buldged out?! I did not use any soaps, only warm water to clean his tank. I replaced the water around 40% of old water with new water (was let to sit in the room for 24 hours), gradually introduced...

    Mini emergency, question about my current betta tank Okay, so I have been doing a bit more research lately and I am starting to question my knowledge of betta fish. I recently bought a ten gallon tank and a divider to go down the middle so I could put my two male half moon bettas in one tank...

    Hey everyone, I really need help for my betta fish Finn. While a friend was taking care of him while I went home for thanksgiving he developed what she described as a 'pimple' on his head. Since then it has expanded and I honestly am not sure what to call it now. Since Sunday he won't eat and...

    We had an unexpectedly cold night last night, and I fear my Betta's water got too cold. :( he's being very lethargic and won't move unless I make him. I've put the fish heater in for him, and placed him a safe distance away from my house heater. Help please?

    Our Betta has been a healthy and active fish for about a year. The past month he has had a big lump on his side that weighs him down, he swims sort of on his side. He is still eating and I originally treated it as constipation but the lump has not gone. We have not done anything different from...

    Please help! My Betta's fins are fringed and bent. When we rescued him he was in a little tiny cup with only about 2 inches of water in it. We are thinking that he had no room to swim so he bent his tails going back and fourth in the tiny cup. He eats like a little piggy and is not acting...

    I've never posted here but did on another and got no feedback and even paid for the expert advice. My Betta "Spastic" is in a very advanced stage of fin/tail rot. I thought he had died yesterday as he was laying at the bottom of the tank. I've tried everything but will say that I've learned...

    My betta lives in a community 20g tank with some barbs and tetras (we have never had a problem) and they never nip at each other at all. The other day I noticed that my betta had a chunk of his fins missing on the top of his body and assumed he ripped it on the new betta log I got him. However...

    It seems like after one fish heals, another gets sick.:cry: One of my female bettas, Baybi, started to develop a weird white stringy growth on her body and fins. I'm not sure if it's cotton wool disease or where she has been stressed. She currently lives in a small tank, less than 1 gallon...

    Hello All, I am new to all of this. I bought my Betta (Feeny) back in December 2013, so I haven't even had him a year yet. When I got him, he was very active, always swimming to the top and a bright red color. About a month ago, we noticed that he wasn't as active anymore. We looked up some...

    I got my betta, Sting, about 4 months ago. After about a month I noticed that his fins were becoming stringy and that he had a small white spot on his side. Since this is my first time owning bettas I thought nothing of it. Now it is worse. The white spot is huge and some times has skin peeling...

    Hi new here, just signed up cause of the emergency! What a way to start my birthday! I woke up just now and found my betta (Casey) stuck in a decor piece, hyperventilating. Normally I would have let him work his way out, but after a bit of investigation I discovered it basically would have been...

    I don't know what it is about me and these king betas lately but I am struggling. I had Delilah while I was in high school and he lived roughly 2 years with minimal maintenance. He developed swim bladder decease about a year and a half in but made it for a while after. I never used anything but...

    I cleaned my bettas tank and accidentally put him in hot water. He remained in the tank for a minute then I took him out and put him in cold water. He did not move for 3 hours, but is still breathing. He has now started to move barely and if he swims, he swims sideways. What should I do? Will he...
