    Hello! Im brand new to the betta fish community , and any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there, my Betta lost a piece of his tail about a month and a half ago, I thought it was slowly getting better but yesterday I noticed that more of his tail is missing. I didn't think it was fin rot because its not black at the tips and its not happening anywhere else. Please how can I help...

    Hi, I'm concerned about my betta's fins and just want to get a second opinion on what could be causing this. I added 1 before and 2 after photos. The chunk near the top went missing overnight, this was when I started treating him with a slime coat booster, and there was no additional damage for...

    Hello, My betta has been suffering with gradual and progressive tail rot for 4-6 months now. It began when I moved him from my apartment to my house, which seemed to be an extremely stressful experience for him. He wouldn’t come out from the back of the tank for nearly a week. Eventually his...

    Hi, My betta is fairly new. He was doing really well. After a few days his ventral fins started curling and losing color. This morning he looked fine other than the curl he acquired. When I came home from work I noticed his tail was shredded a lot. He was still swimming around and ate two...

    My (first)betta came down with fin rot recently, I gave him a course of Imagitarium Bacterial Infection Remedy and when that did not seem to work and the infection progressed, I switched to Melafix. The Melafix seemed to take care of the infection as the tattered fins are regrowing, however he...

    About a month ago, I noticed my betta biting off chunks off his fins and eating them. This had me panicked. Luckily, I did enough research and I kept him healthy enough for his fins to almost completely regrow! Then, I noticed another chunk of his fin missing and found it floating on top of one...

    I just got two new bettas. One has been treated for illness and is recovering and the second has fin rot and I found one anchor worm on him. What do I do about the anchor worm, there was only one and I removed it and it’s a brand new fish so it did not come from my tank. I’m worried that it may...

    About 6 weeks ago we noticed our Betta Fish (Sideshow Bob) looked ill and had a hole in his fin. After researching we learnt this was likely fin rot & took recommended next steps: more thoroughly cleaning his bowl, using a 'Bettafix' solution, etc. While SB does seem to have improved in this...

    I got my first betta a few weeks ago, he’s a male half moon and is currently in a 10 gallon with a heater and filter. I noticed sometime around last week that his fins were starting to look ragged and I was worried he might have fin rot. I bought bettafix but after hearing it was bad (the same...

    Hi everyone! I have had betta fish before, but I recently got a new one for my birthday at the end of April! His name is Piggy, he is a male crowntail, and he has quite the personality! I originally had him in a glass bowl that my sister got from Walmart. This past weekend, I went to a great...

    Hi all :) I've had my new betta - Steve - for about 4 days. After getting Steve out of his fish store confines, I noticed that his fins are curled, his pectoral fins are transparent (but appear intact), and his tail is a little ragged so I'm concerned about fin rot. Based on what I've found...

    I rescued a betta in may and I do not trust his former water conditions and his diet was very poor too. He has brighten up a lot since then, he’s eating his new food well, and moves around a fair amount but sometimes he looks down (sitting in the corner of the top of the cage for hours) and I...

    Hello My blue betta have clear fins. But some of them are a little yellow. Specially the ones in the front bottom. Please see the pictures. Can this be fin rot or is everything normal. An other thing I want to ask is, if it is normal for a betta to swim left to right at the glass for a long...
