  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I'm in need of some very serious advice... (Before and after "1 year later" pictures attached) I'll start off by saying that I love my fish, and it really does bring me to tears to even have to consider this option. That being said, if he's suffering, I don't want to prolong the...

    Hey everyone, I am not a normal member of this site but I thought I could come here for a quick question. I purchased my sad little betta about two months back because he was in this disgusting container from Walmart and it has been a roller coaster since. STATS: My mom bought me a 3.5 gallon...

    Hi guys, My betta has been battling dropsy for about 4 weeks now. After a lot of work to keep him comfortable and medicated, my Tango's health has declined so much this week. I'm heartbroken to say that I think it's time to end the suffering and euthanize him. I am planning on using clove oil...

    Hey guys so I have tried everything and now all he does is lay at the bottom of the tank and struggle terribly to get to the surface for air. He is now in only 3 or 4 inches of water. Ive done everything. he is just slowly going away. He stopped caring about food which he has never done and all...

    I need honest opinions here, folks. My first betta, Sherlock, has had Lymphocytosis for almost a year now, and up until now it appeared to be manageable and not spreading. He for a while has had four spots near his eye that I figured would grow eventually, but now they are beginning to. He also...

    Hello. My beautiful betta, Takeshi, has been battling dropsy for a while now and seems near his end. :( His belly is incredibly swollen and his scales are pineconing. He spends most of his time at the bottom of his tank, face-first into the rocks, and struggles to eat. I tried treating him with...

    Long story short, my betta was being treated for a virus that was affecting the entire stock of the pet store distributor's bettas. He had ammonia burns on his fins so I was treating him in a petsmart cup with daily daily water changes, & a few drops of Melafix. He was starting to look better...

    Hello Everyone, I have had my Betta, Bob, for about 5 years. Over the past year he has been getting chronically sick but I've always been able to get him better. However, several weeks ago he developed a lump on the underside of his mouth. At first it would go away following total water...

    About 12 months ago, I got my very first betta (toby) from a local pet shop, and he was my pride and joy. He was absolutely adorable and I was totally in love. Then, 5 weeks ago, he completely changed. He was completely lethargic, stopped eating, and my boyfriend noticed he started to look very...

    Today I had to put my Wal-Mart rescue, Marcy down. Her finrot was beyond repair and she had become extremely bloated and gotten a fungus around her face. I followed the instructions I found on the internet, and when I put the emulsion in she swam to the top and started flailing and spazzing...

    Our beloved Betta Mini died December 20, 2013. Died?! No.....disintegrated. I will include pictures of this terrible death documenting the last almost 3 months when I can. For now... In case anyone has a fish with medically verified Dropsy, they should immediately consider euthanizing the...

    The last couple of months have been torture on my poor little Betta. He was constipated after eating a little bit of Brine Shrimp and caught an Ich infection during recovery. Towards the end of his treatment, his eyes have gotten puffy, his tail torn, and he's become quite lethargic. During...

    Through of faults of my own, my fish Sirius-named by a friend of mine-is currently having issues holding air from the surface inside is labyrinth organ. He'll go to the surface to get some and you can see the air flow out of his gills in bubbles. I'm pretty sure it was brought on by ammonia...

    Before I start, I would like all of you to know that I know that I have made a huge number of mistakes, and I really am a complete beginner at taking care of fish. Now, to introduce my fish, he is a male 5 year old (about) orangish-pink veil tail betta. His full name is Boo Radley (named so by...

    I rescued Raphaello, a blue VT, from Petsmart two weeks ago. He was in a filthy slimy dirty cup. A soon as i brought him home and put him in his new filtered tank with some bamboo and a little plant, he started to deteriorate. First: cottony patches - fungus, right? Second: tail falling apart...

    I have 2 beautiful betta boys (in separate tanks of course): Draco and Luna. I've had Draco for almost two years, and I don't know how old he was before I got him from Petco. About a month ago, Draco had a touch of dropsy or something that made his scales protrude only a bit and a smidge of...
