  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...

    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. I am going to buy some aquarium salt and going to try salt dips, as I don’t want to add it directly...

    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...

    I rescued a sick betta from petco. I wasn’t gonna get a fish just stuff to start cycling a tank, but he looked like he wouldn’t make it another day but like he wanted to. So I brought him home and I had no other option then to just cycle my tank for a couple hours and put him in there. I don’t...

    My fish Elphaba (From Wicked!) has problems going on with his fins. It started with just a tear in his back fins after I put a lego house in, but I noticed within an hour and took the lego out. Since then, I've bought a heater and started to do more frequent water changes, but now the ends of...

    My male veiltail betta, Steve, was experiencing some fin fraying on his tail fin about 4 days ago.

    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?

    Disclaimer: I know the tank is too small and he should have a heater, but I’m a broke college student and no one else wanted him, so I’m doing the best I can with what I’ve got. Symptoms and Treatment: Photos at the bottom. I rescued this fish from my brother, who’d kept it in the tiny plastic...

    I’ll keep the intro short since I kinda went to town on the questionnaire: My girlfriend and I liberated (bought) Jeph from an abandoned Walmart fish department that was removed less than a month later. His health has never been great but seems to be declining quickly with a rough case of fin...

    Hi! I work at a family owned pet store in my town, and I recently took one of the bettas home because he had been there for probably months in the tiny betta cups on a shelf. His colors were completely faded and he looked brown when I took him home :( I got him for free since he was so dingey...
