  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I recently got a betta from a local pet store, he was in pretty bad shape to start with and his improvement has plateaued for the last few weeks.

    Hi! I work at a family owned pet store in my town, and I recently took one of the bettas home because he had been there for probably months in the tiny betta cups on a shelf.

    I just had Lionel in a 2.5 gallon quarantine tank for over a month now. I dosed him with aquarium salt for about 8 days(changing 100% of the water daily) and then thereafter, I changed 100% of the water every other day to every three days. He started showing some beautiful re-growth during that...

    Hi, guys. I noticed Dumbledore has this...Odd coloring on his tail. I don't think it's fin rot, but maybe some healing/recovering from when he had it when I got him. I have 2 pictures, and they are blurry but I think you'll see what I mean. The pictures make it look orange, but they are more...
