    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey, I hope everyone is having a good day! I am beginning to get worried because it seems like my betta’s fins are deteriorating.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey guys, had this betta for 2 weeks now, have been feeding him pellets and the water temp is 25° in a 3 gallon tank.

  4. Fin Rot - 3 Weeks and No Improvement

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm new to this forum, so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong place to ask this question. Maybe 5 weeks ago I purchased my first Betta from the only "pet store" within 20 miles of my house, an Ace Hardware (yes, a hardware store selling pets). I think the Bettas there had fin rot, but I...
  5. Is this fin rot? or fin biting?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Received a Betta as a gift in February while I was living in a college dorm and got him a 2 gallon tank w/ filter and heater (it was the biggest I could go). He has since been living in that tank with a moss ball and java fern, but I then had to leave for 1 week and left him in the care of my...
  6. Fin rot vs. old age

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've had my fish is since its adolescence for 3 years now and I've noticed a tear and white around the tear in his fin. I don't know if I should be concerned about this or not his fins aren't white either so it's not a part of his pattern.

    I just can't seem to help Dennis with this case of fin rot. 5 days ago I posted on Reddit in the r/bettafish forum this: So over the past two weeks, Dennis has really been struggling with an intense case of fin rot.

  9. Help! Unsure of what to do...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi there! I have had my Betta fish Lupin for almost 2 years now. Initially when I started the hobby of keeping fighters I only had them in 3 gallon tanks, which I now know is kind of cruel. He has since been upgraded to a 5.5 gallon tank. While he was in the smaller tank, I initially thought...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I have joined as my poor betta son has had so much trouble really since day 1.

  13. Fin Rot

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My poor betta's fins have been all tattered up for almost a month now :( I immediately began doing water changes every 1-2 weeks and treating the tank with aquarium salt since I read up on it being good for preventing pretty much every illness.

  16. Help! How do I cure fin rot?

    Betta Fish Care
    Alright so basically, I'm an idiot. I bought a betta before doing any research. At first he was living in a bowl. I'm not going to lie, it got pretty dirty. I'm pretty sure he was showing the first signs of fin rot while in there. I learned that bettas need a lot of space so I bought him a 5...
  17. Any thoughts on reoccurring fin rot?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, in the past few weeks, our betta Juices' tail has been looking increasingly raggedy, thin, and frayed in the top half portion. I'm wondering if this is due to the tank evidently not cycling, even though there is a daily 0 ppm ammonia level in the water. Info about tank: 5 gallon tank...
