    I’m fostering Fishy. He’s been swimming erratically and rubbing against rocks so I did some research. I’m worried he has velvet. I don’t want to treat with copper unless I’m sure. Can anyone say with certainty that this is velvet and if so is he beyond saving? Don’t want his last days to be...

It was hard to get all the necessities, so his temporary home is a 2.5G with no filter but I change the water every 2-3 days (using API Stress Coat + Seachem prime conditioner) I've had him since April. I don't know what happened...

    Ok... So today I was cleaning out my the three gallon belonging to my beautiful Half-moon Plakat Dandy. Just like I always do, I fished him out and put him into a small cup with some of his tank water in it... Except this time I think I put just a bit to much water in. Long story short I found...

    Hello all, Posting this because I'm insanely worried about my new platinum white betta, today looking at him I noticed he has a red mark as if he's bleeding or scratched himself on the side of him?

    I noticed this white growth (?) on my betta, Peacock. At first I thought gill flukes seeing as it's so close to his gills. However, he doesn't act like he notices it and doesn't rub any more than usual on the decorations. It doesn't appear to move any, but looks slightly fuzzy? It also looks a...
