    When I first brought Lauda home on February 5, he had a few parts of his fin that looked stuck together. They were small though. Over the weeks, this has become an issue, and I can't figure out what is wrong or how to treat it. Since February 12 I've been using the recommended amount of...
  2. Curled Top Fin

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I've had my betta for about a year and a half. I got him when he was a baby and he'd pretty big now. His top fin was always open like a fan and all good.

    So Sebastian made the trip to school fine and was totally fine the first week here. During the weekend before last he went on a tail bitting spree and ate the rest of his dorsal fin that was remaining from his last nomming experience and the upper part of his tail. I could only start a salt...

    Sorry in advance for the whole biography of the fishy experience... :-D So I bought my first betta in about 10 years on friday, and everything had been going swimingly until now. I had aged the water in the tank before buying him for ~1 week only adding Prime to the water at the time. When I...
