    This is my Doubletail Half-moon betta named Dango. He is in a 5 gal fluval spec.

When I got him, he already had a few translucent looking spots on his fins. After doing...

    I feel absolutely terrible about this, but I think I put a few rips in my betta's ventral ("anal"?) fin this morning while I transferred him to another tank.

    I have a small planted driftwood in my 2.5G tank and was wondering if it's safe for their fins? I know theres the pantyhose test but just as a general rule what's everyone's experience with driftwood and their betta?

    Hey everyone, I made a post once before about my fishes fins possibly rotting, and having quarenteened him with aquarium salt treatments/daily water changes, there has been no change.

    Hey guys, In the past several weeks, my 2 year old betta has been kind of... off. His fins were getting more ragged, but I couldnt see any rot. I treated with aquarium salt, and left him be. Last week I noticed what I thought could be columnaris, and I treated with water changes and Furan 2...

    I've noticed my betta's fins have been have been tearing and just looking poor lately, and I took out the plastic plants for a while and nothing seemed to change. His dorsal fin has been kind of weird looking for a while too. It looks sort of twisted/collapsed. I thought maybe it got hurt when I...

    I've had a betta in a 5 gal tank for about a year and a half now. I have a heater and a filter. I dechlorinate his water and have fed him new life spectrum pellets. He has been doing well for a while the only issue has been his fins. It seems as though they're always getting torn. I thought it...

    I bought this beautiful betta about 2 months ago, he is in a 2.5 filtered heated tank. I keep The temp about 80F all the time. The filtered is baffled , he has no problem swimming. I don't believe this is a problem caused by the filter. Not sure tho, but anyways recently I noticed his fins...
