  1. Betta Fish Care
    Hello! I’m new to the forum but I’be been using the site for a while to learn more about bettas before getting my guy, Goji. I’ve noticed that he’s grown a lot since I got him on April 4th (second picture), but I’ve also noticed that his tail fin has this weird line going all the way from top...

    Hi! This is my beauty Auggie. I have had her for just under a year and she is the queen of my 10 gallon planted mini community tank. Within the past week or so, I noticed this strange bump on her side that is not going away. Auggie is very prone to injury as she purposefully wiggles herself into...

    Hello all, I have had my betta for about seven months now, I had some problems with him biting his fins but didn't have any problems since then. A couple months ago I noticed a small bump on the top of his fins (picture below) but didn't think much of it. Long story short, its still growing and...

    Hi hi :) I have a recent thread I posted that has become very long due to all of the incredible help I’ve received (absolutely love this forum lol), so I thought I’d create a new one specifically for this lump to see if I can reach a wider audience to get some opinions!! My white opal male...

    I wanted to show off my baby betta and have others show off theirs and share their experience! I bought Radical Edward on Dec 10. She was labeled as "Baby Boy" I initially had her in a 1.5g kritter keeper with a heater and did daily partial water changes. Food was mainly tetra betta flakes and...

    Hello! I am rather new to the betta world and my current betta, Proteus, is the only one I have ever owned. I have had him for around half a year now, though I have noticed that he has some strange growth on his side. I think the lump appeared around 2 or 3 months ago, but I had assumed it was...

    Hello, Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I've actually rewritten this multiple times because it just gets insanely long, so I'm going to be super brief this time. I know I can elaborate if more information is needed. The filled out form is listed below, but here are some bullet...

    Hello, I recently adopted a female betta fish from a family member and she is currently in a sorority with two other, younger females in a 10G tank. They get along well and everything seems good in that regard. These are my first fish so I am still learning. I am not sure on the exact age of the...

    I am fully open to the hate I may or may not receive. I bred a spawn of Bettas May 2018 and have been raising the fry up well. I had some die off during the process, some due to my own mistake, and others due to natural causes. I had an infusoria and microworm culture going strong, but the...

    So, this is the best picture I could get for what is happening to my tank and betta recently. It's noticeable around his head and body. This algae, if that's what it is, is all over the fake tank plants and decorations. I can't seem to get rid of it, right after I 100% clean the tank, it comes...

    I noticed this white growth (?) on my betta, Peacock. At first I thought gill flukes seeing as it's so close to his gills. However, he doesn't act like he notices it and doesn't rub any more than usual on the decorations. It doesn't appear to move any, but looks slightly fuzzy? It also looks a...

    I just want to thank everyone in advance, the bettafish.com community has helped my take care of my Betta the best I can. My Betta Chip has this white growth that looks like a large scale on his side. At first I thought it was just a large scale, but it keeps getting bigger and bigger. To me it...

    I work at a pet store, and we noticed the other day that one of our female bettas is covered in a green algae-like substance. She seems very lethargic and I am trying to see what I can do to help her. Unfortunately, the bettas are kept in horrible conditions (no heaters, SMALL containers, and...

    My husband and I have had our betta fish Squirt since April of 2015, within the past week and a half we've noticed a growth on the end of what looks like a string located between his fins. At the bottom of his bowl we found two more sacks that have fallen off or that he has scratched off. I was...

    Hey guys! I'm new to this forum and also a new betta mom. I introduced my new betta to his 5 gallon heated and filtered tank yesterday. He is happily exploring every nook and cranny of his home, and has been quite responsive to my presence. (I attached a picture of him chillin' with his silk...

    My fighting fish henry has a growth white lump on his tail which i have noticed now has a hole through it. I have been treating him with blue planets fungus care, have seperated him from the other fish and change the water regularly. I have no idea what it is and he is having trouble swimming.

    Hi betta lovers, We've had this blue betta named George for quite some time in a 10 gallon tank with a few tetras and a cory. Nothing much has changed, but George recently developed a small lump at the base of his tail fin and it has been growing over the past couple weeks. Hoping someone might...
