    I’ve had my betta fish Pepper since he was a little baby and I love him so much.

About a month ago I noticed two small protrusions on his body near his (I'm assuming anal) fin. Since Shadowfax is white you can even see the two...

    I have owned my betta since July of last year, so about 8 months. I left home for 2 days and came back and he was not swimming properly. I assumed this was swim bladder and just tried to fast him and clean his tank. That did not work. I tried to feed him a pea, that also did not help. This has...
