  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! So I got my betta as a baby back in January. For a couple months I noticed his bottom fins have been ragged. I did not think much of it but it has gotten worse. I do weekly water changes, however I wonder if it is because I use RO water with some replinish by seachem. Or is it just his...

    I have had my betta for about four months and he's had fin rot three times now. I took my water to the shop, they tested it and said it's perfect, and I test it regularly to make sure it's fine. I don't put the light in my tank on bright, as I know this can bother bettas, I've even added some...

    Hi everyone. We got our first Betta fish, Ginger, 2 days ago from a local aquatics store. At first I thought he had speckles on him, but on looking closer they are actually little holes in his fins. I’ve also noticed black tips at end of his fins, which at first we thought was his colouring as...

    So this morning I woke up and my betta fish seemed to have some damage done to his fin, I was so confused because I didn’t know what happened. The water parameters are perfect and nothing seems to be wrong with the actual water or tank itself i have already filled out the questions on my other...

    Hi everyone, I've had my bettas for about two weeks now and they're all doing really well! Great advice on the heater from y'all; it really makes a difference in their personality and energy levels! It's made me prioritize 5 gal tanks for each of them as soon as I have the money. My Halfmoon...

    Hello! I really new some help figuring out what the best steps are in helping my sick betta fish. I got my betta fish (his name is Foyet) in April as a birthday gift and I’ve never owned one before so I did a lot of research on their care and ideal living conditions. Foyet had a bit personality...

    Hey everyone! Wanted to know what you all think of eSHa 2000. I bought it from my local fish store and the owner, who I'm good friends with, recommends it. He doses all his tanks with it weekly as a preventative measure and uses said it'll be perfect for my betta with fin rot! I've been...

    My betta fish Martha has some tears in her fins, but i don't know if it's fin rot, or just wear and tear. Her activity levels are high and she's taking food like normal, but the blackened areas around the base of her tail concern me. That being said, i don't know if her fins are black because of...

    Hello fishy friends, This is my first time posting on a fish care related forum since I got my betta guy around 3 weeks ago. I sense that he has a beginning/ moderate stage of fin rot. I am really new to fish care, so I can’t tell how worried should I be about his current condition and what...

    Hi everyone! Wish my new post could've been about something positive, however I believe Rosey is unwell, and I'm hoping to catch whatever she has early on before it gets too bad. Housing: How many gallons is your tank? -10 Gallons Does it have a filter? -Yes, 1 box filter Does it have a...

    Hello, Thank you for clicking this post. My betta has currently had a swollen abdomen for two days now and has been lethargic and not eating. I thought it might be dropsy but I don’t think I see visible pine coning. I have fasted him for the past 3 days and given him daily epsom baths in a...

    Hi! I’m new to this community, so I apologize in advance if I make any errors in posting to appropriate channels. Somewhat recently I bought a beautiful white opal male, who has been very active, showy, seemingly happy, and eating well. I’ve been a little concerned about his pectoral fins from...

    I discovered today my mustard betta has a red marking on his tail. I'm not sure if it's finrot, parasite, or him changing colours. I don't have a testing kit on hand, but I did a water change (%30) yesterday (I do it weekly). He is eating and swimming around normally. He is also in a heated...

    Hi everyone! I recently got a Betta fish who is now set up in a 6gal tank with heater and filter. He's been in there for about a week now, and he is eating regularly, is super energetic, and seems healthy. However, I've noticed a spot on his lower fin that looks clear/white. The fin is still...

    Several months ago I lost my first betta to an unidentified disease with finrot as a symptom. After doing some serious upgrades, I purchased Noodles from Petco. Even though I believe I’ve been taking care of him much better than my first betta, he still started showing finrot about a month ago...

    So Belle, my halfmoon betta fish is ill right now. Symptoms started showing about a week ago. When I saw it starting, I put in some Aquarium Salt from API. 3 days salt bath, didn't work. Changed to Bettafix and dosed it for 4 days. It only got worse, so I did a 100% water change and put API salt...

    Hello everyone, I’ve had my Betta, Señor Thor, for a little over a month. I am consistent with water changes & tank-cleaning, but noticed a few days ago that his fins are starting to fray. It didn’t look like fin rot because the edges of his fins are naturally a dark blue & have been since I got...
