    My betta has suddenly gotten fin rot. I first noticed a tiny hole in his caudal fin. He was swimming fine and eating just fine, but I noticed the tiny hole and began to get worried. Not sure what caused it as his tank is clean, but I do have some ideas of what may have caused it. I'm filling out...

    Hello! My first time posting here, but I need some help. This is Sora, and as you can see there is redness around the ends of his tail and fins, and I am not sure if it's due to snagging, fin rot, or fin nipping from its tank mates. There is no white fuzz or brown/black edges. Just the redness...

    Hi everyone. I’m new to the forum and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what’s wrong with my betta. I’m wondering if maybe he has fin rot or if there is something else wrong with him. He was in with some neon tetras and they were nipping him so I moved him to a different tank...

    My betta, Klaus, has been through the ringer. He did have swim bladder, so we fasted him for 3 days and switched foods per a forum expert’s advice. He was fine for a couple of weeks. Then, one week ago, he started to exhibit similar symptoms. We assumed we were feeding too much (3 pellets 4x...

    Hello, I’ve tried a lot of other forums and not many were helpful so this is sort of my last hope at an answer. My betta is 2 years old and lives in a heated and filtered 10 gallon tank with live plants. I test his water and all the levels are normal. I’ve tried several anti fungal and...

    So I've had my halfmoon betta for 2 months now, and everything was just fine. He lives in a 3 5 gallon tank, with an apple snail. The only decoration is a plastic plant (I was careful not to get one that might hurt his fins) and a rock decoration. I alternate feeding him once a day with shrimp...

    Hi everyone, I’m worried that my Nebby has fin rot. I prepared a small hospital tank with API Aquarium Salt, but before I put him in it I want to get a second opinion to make sure that this really is fin rot and not just my anxiety making me freak out over nothing. Here is the filled out...

    My favorite betta Alarik just passed and he was perfectly healthy, so Im filling this out for him... A couple other bettas of mine are having finrot and im using melafix and pimafix since they tend to start getting fuzzy towards later stages. Alarik was my pride and joy. He was such a happy go...

    I've had my better for a little over a year. Had him in a 5 gallon (Spec V) and moved him to a 3 gallon (Spec III) because he was healthy, but didn't really use the full 5 gallons like my new better I got (after my other one sadly passed :( ). Long story short his fins have rapidly gotten worse...

    Hey all! So about 2 days ago I bought a new beta from a local Petsmart. He's a crowntail that I've decided to name Buck, attached are some day one pictures and a couple from today. I decided on picking this little fella because he seemed to be in pretty rough shape. As you can see his fins are...
