    Recently, I had a fish pass due to fin rot. Now, I want to be able to reuse the aquarium IF possible. So… is this possible? If so, how? I want to try and reuse the entire tank a long with the filter, heater, thermostat, and maybe some decorations if possible. How would I be able to make this...

    Tank has been running for years, but I've had this Betta since February. 10g, filtered, heated ~80°. Parameters have been at 8 ph, less than 0.25 ammonia (it's not yellow but not as dark as the first block), 0 nitrates and nitrites since I got him so a solid 9 months. It has never fluctuated in...

    My betta boy has developed what I think is a fungal infection on his fin-- either fungal fin rot, or bacterial fin rot that has developed fungus on the infected section? It's confined to a single fin, nothing on his other fins or body. He does have some rips in his other fins as he's a boredom...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and been reading up on this for a little bit (Y'all all see really cool btw and love all your fishies!), But I'm still confused on what's going on with my betta, Kuroba. He's had a white growth, which I thought was fungus, for a while. I immediately got some...

    The before picture was taken a day before the other photo. I’m trying to narrow down the problem and hopefully you all can help. I don’t know if it fin rot, torn, or blown out. Some factors are, there’s a fake plant in the tank that I have always been hesitant about because it could be a little...

    Hello. This is my first Betta. I purchased him from someone in the classifieds 2.5 days ago. I was told he is about 1 year old (they bought him from the pet store 1 year ago). In watching him closely, I noticed that his caudal and anal fins have some white and red discoloration at the tips. I...

    My betta has fin rot and it has gotten progressively worse just in the last day even after a large water change. I checked my levels just now and the only difference from normal is the nitrate level, which still is technically reading as safe but is definitely much higher than normal (now...

    So I guess this is what happens when you buy a betta on nothing but pop knowledge. Hello, young fool with no fishkeeping experience here. Bought a baby betta about three weeks back I've named Opal, and am currently scrambling to adjust water parameters after I realized everything I was doing...

    My betta fins have been getting smaller, shrinking, and tearing so I did a water change in his fish tank about a week ago, and he hasn't been getting better. Today I noticed that he has scales missing on the lower end of his body, and I'm wondering how I could treat him. He lives in a filtered 5...

    My Betta fish's tail has gradually gotten worse ever since I got him. I have tried Indian almond leaves, getting him plants and a cave, and his water is clean. I've never seen him bite his tail. It just keeps getting more and more deformed. I don't know how to help him or what to do. I don't...

Recently, he’s been through a lot of stress and I haven’t been the best about upkeeping his new tank since I’m back in school...

    Good evening to the forum. My betta Siddhartha has had some pretty persistent fin rot for about a week. He has been getting a daily dose of API Pimafix for 4 days now. I am also in the process of doing an In-Fish Cycle in his 5 gallon. I am only in the first stages of that as the ammonia is...

    I'm not sure if my betta has fin rot or not. I read that if it's fin rot, black stuff can be found on the fins. However, my bettas fins have always had black coloration on the edges and tips. From what little I know, he is a double tail betta with black body and blue sheen, and yellow fins with...

    I rescued a betta(black orchid double/crown tail???) from petsmart around three days ago. I got him because he was crooked and I knew he’d die there. After some research, I figured he was crooked due to overfeeding and a swim bladder issue. I’ve kept him off food for those three days. I just did...
