    My little boy, Baby has been with me for almost a year now. However last November I noticed he started getting tail rot. I did way more research into it and bought Seachem Prime, a good filter and some more tank decor so he wouldn't be bored as I was a complete newbie before that and didn't...

    I got Sushi from Petco about a month ago. I am a first-time betta mom and unfortunately did not do my research beforehand. Sushi’s tank was not cycled nor were the water parameters properly monitored. About 2 weeks after I got sushi, I noticed the tips of his fins turning translucent. He lost a...

    Hi, I’ve just subscribed to this forum because I’m currently panicking. I just noticed my white opal betta has some slight dark coloring on his fins and they look much less full than they used to.

    Hello, I am very worried about my betta and would love any advice. About a week ago I noticed my Betta not acting himself, and he was mostly just hanging out in his floating betta log rather than swimming around and being curious. Then he started laying on the floor of his tank or on top of...

    Started with 2 weeks Aquarium Salt, then added Furan2, repeated twice, then tried Pimafux. Fin Rot just keeps getting worse. Using one gallon quarantine tank with no filter. 50 pct water change daily. 100% change every 3 days. What else can I try?
