  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I've had my boy Blue since October 6th so a little over a month and he was doing perfectly fine until about a week ago when I was able to get a siphon to clean the gravel(before that I just used a cup for water changes). The gravel had a lot of waste in it and the next day the nitrite and...

    My beta fish seems sick, and I’m not sure what to do about it! He hasn’t been super lethargic, but he hangs out next to the heater all the time now. His fins started to have a hole, and I tried to remember if he had that when I got him. Well now, it’s grown worse, with what looks like mold...

    I just purchased a halfmoon galaxy koi boy from a breeder who had very positive reviews, but when he arrived yesterday, his fins looked strange to me. I’m by no means an expert—I have had two other bettas for a long time now and fortunately neither have ever exhibited signs of illness, so I’m...

    Hi! I'm new to owning fish, and my dad (40~ years of experience with saltwater) has been helping me try to take as much care as we can for my fish. I recently got a Betta and he's acting a little off (maybe?) so I want to be as safe as possible, especially after he got a weird growth on his...

    My betta, Henry, had fin rot for a long time. After trying different approaches, his fin rot got very bad in August and I had to give him antibiotics (Neoplex). He was a bit lethargic at that point, and a day into his treatment he became much more active. I had him on the antibiotics for about...

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...
