    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, I currently have 2 bettas in a divided tank. One of my bettas has always had fin biting issues and is currently in the process of regrowing his fin. However, his bottom fin appears to be curling and it looks different then when I first got him. I don't know if it is some minor fun rot...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta has come down with fin rot and it becoming increasingly worse. His tail is edged with black on the tips and in the webbings and his fins look tattered and stringy.

  7. Fin / possible body rot - what else can I do to help?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone. My baby Haru has a really terrible case of fin rot, and on his belly fin I believe it's progressed to a bit of body rot. I've been trying to fight it off for a while now, but obviously not as aggressively as I should have, since I let it get this far. Last week I realized just how...

At the store, I did not know how to look for a healthy fish, and ended up buying him even though he already had the beginnings of som nasty fin rot. I had him in a 1gallon "tank"...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I'm the proud owner of a Crown Tail Betta and a Half Moon Betta. I'm a teacher at a school that recently decided to get a betta (pretty sure half moon).

  14. Torn tail from filter

    Betta Fish Care
    I came home to find that my betta fish's tail (the hind tail) was missing a piece, and the only thing in his tank that could have caused that was the filter. I took the filter out, but now I'm worried his tank might get too dirty and cause him to get diseases. My questions are: 1) should I...
