  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got my first betta a few weeks ago, he’s a male half moon and is currently in a 10 gallon with a heater and filter. I noticed sometime around last week that his fins were starting to look ragged and I was worried he might have fin rot. I bought bettafix but after hearing it was bad (the same...

    My fish Henry seems to be developing white spots/lumps on some of his fins. They look a bit more pronounced on some fins and I'm only able to find them on one side. I tried adding some NeoPlex to the tank water since I initially thought this was ich, but that didn't change anything. I did some...

    I noticed my Benis fins suddenly smaller and went on reddit to ask advice. Most people said it was fin rot so I did water changes like crazy, added an almond leaf and tried stress guard. I just started maracyn when I happened to stumble upon an article here about fin biting. Do you think that's...

    I have had my Betta for 2 weeks, and 2 days ago I noticed big rips in his fins. I have a different post where I thought it might be the filter or decorations tearing his tail, but I safety proofed the filter and took out any sharp decorations and his tail still got worse, so it has to be tail...

    I just got him not long ago and put him in an established divided tank where I have another existing betta. The new one seems really restless but my other betta doesn't seem to care much. Water parameter is good as the existing betta has been living in the tank healthily and active. As soon...

    My delta tail betta has been having fin issues for the last month or so. I'm a pretty new fishkeeper and I want to do the best I can for my fish. His fins are getting pretty ragged. He has some transparent areas on his top fin. The edges of his fins aren't white or black or red, and they're not...

    I was told that I can put Roobios Tea in my tank to prevent fin biting, and my first thought was someone gulping down their Morning Caffeine and giving the rest to their betta. As a coffee-obsessed person, I found this hilarious.

    I posted a few days ago about my betta Merik hurting his fins on his filter. I recently put him in a 5 gallon fluval spec aquarium. I’d read a million reviews on how this tank is great for bettas. I also read reviews from people talking about how their bettas love to suction themselves to the...

    Hello everyone! This is mine and my boyfriend's lovely boy Marvin. We've had Marvin for a while now and have seen him grow to become a wonderful little fish (he first came to us as a butterfly blue/white color, now he's solid blue-green with a hint of red). We love him very much and hate to see...

    Hi, everyone! My boy Louis is looking really tatty from his tail. It started with some missing chunks that I thought maybe was because of tearing against decorations (even though I've sanded down the rough edges on everything I own) that grew in size to large tears along the fin rays (that...

    I've had my betta a little over 2 weeks now at at first he was fine but it now seems as if he's developing a fin biting problem. I currently am assuming that it is because there wasn't much stimulation in the tank except for some floating elodea and water wisteria. I've since added one of those...

    So, I'm pretty sure Hamilfin decided to bite his fins... I think it might be because of his light, he flares at his reflection when its on. I turned it off yesterday, but I checked on him this morning and his fins looked worse. Housing: How many gallons is your tank?5 Does it have a filter?Yes...

    Denny, my precious little guy, is biting his fins. I have never dealt with fin biting before, I guess I should feel lucky, LOL. Anyway, I've done a bunch of research, I've read the Fin Biting Vs. Fin Rot sticky, but nowhere can I find anything that will make him heal faster (if there is such a...

    Hello. I purchased a halfmoon betta almost 4 months ago and have recently run into some slow but steadily progressing tail biting. Last time I had a halfmoon betta he also bit his fins and he eventually had almost no tail or dorsal fin left. It was awful. :'c This fellow is on a similar path...

    I did a 50% water change a few days ago in my tank. Last night I noticed my betta was missing another chunk from his fin (this time his dorsal) and wasn't as excited about his food as he usually is. I just tested the water and suddenly there's an ammonia spike... I've never had this happen so...
