    Hello, my betta, Paradise seems to have a mysterious pimple-looking growth on top of his left eye and his tail looks as if there is a strange white clump on it. Is it a fungus" I noticed about a week or so ago that he was incredible pale, and just lying at the bottom of the tank. I thought he...

    I've had my female crown tail Athena for about a year and a half now and she's always been very active and full of energy. I did a complete water change a few days ago and also exchanged her heater out for a new one that turns off at 78 degrees F, doing everything I normally do (full cleaning of...

    Derek my fish is not flaring. Not to a mirror or another male/female betta. Any help? I've had him for a month. He is a crowntail. I've only seen him flare once when I kept a camera to his face, but now it isn't working.

    This morning I noticed distinctive white coloring and one of my betta's pelvic fins. I'm worried it's fin rot since he had a bad run in (possibly with the filter?) about a month ago and his fins got pretty torn up. However, they've been growing back quite nicely. I'm super worried. He's my first...

    PLEASE HELP. I am a second time betta owner. I currently have three small females in a 5.5 gal sorority, and one male in a 2.5 tank. One of the females is very sick, and has not eaten once since I brought her home (though she did once have a tiny bit of poop on her fish bum). The females were...

    Hi there :) I've been browsing this site for quite a while but never made an account but now I need help! I've been owners to many VT bettas and one CT betta in the past so I generally know what I'm doing. However I bought a new male a few days ago and I am having trouble figuring out what type...

    So my betta is almost a year and a half old. About 6 months ago, he got fin rot, so he's pretty much just a body now (it's pretty sad :-( ) but he seemed healthy until recently. He won't eat (or even look at food) and he sits at the bottom of the tank all day. He doesn't react to my finger or...

    My male CT got swim bladder about a week and a half ago. I figured it was from overeating. I had just gotten some WCMMs for tank mates for my male VT on the other side if the divided ten gal and I had been feeding them a little more than usual. I put him in a half gal(yes I know it's small but...

    I mentioned this before, but no one answered me and it's getting worse. His fins are clamped (he still swims around), but there's a hole in the caudial fin, the tips of each are frayed/disintegrating/'broken', and I just watched a small piece fall off. What do I do? D:

    :cry: My betta, Draco,is a dragon scale betta fish and I noticed today he is discolored, with his fins deteriorating away with the black edge! I've noticed previously his swimming issues and was worried but I am very busy and didn't investigate. I regret that so much right now, as I type this...

    Hi! So, first time posting here, and I have a question for all of you regarding my betta, Leebob. What IS he? I mean, I know he's a betta and all, but the color pattern is alien to me. I've been looking on line for hours now, and all I've been able to find out is that that he may or may not...

    So today I found the old fish tank my parents and I had from when I was little. My mom thinks it's like 20-25 gallons. and I'd like to put a divider up (probably going to do a mesh). It's plastic and quite large. I hope Humphrey and Mojo like it, I also found two heaters and a filter (which...

    Can rats live in old dog crates? I'm getting a rat soon, and I can't exactly find a cheap cage. But I think I have a crate from when my dog was a puppy. It has wire bars and a plastic flooring that is removable. If I added some platforms and such, would it work? The rat is an almost full...

    My betta fish is very bloated! I need help! I have not been feeding him much, 3-4 pellets a day. Some days, if i feed him to much, I do not feed him the next day. I assume that if i do not feed him for some days, the problem will be fixed. I will give a picture if I need to, to your request. But...

    so I woke up this morning and turned on my bedroom light and was just laying in bed. I heard my fish thrashing around and hitting the sides of the tank, hard. So I looked up and ran over there to check him and by then he was just hovering on the bottom opening and closing his mouth. when I...

    About two months ago, my CT got into a fight with my largest Rosey Red, Nana. The results were that she lost every fin and he lost every single ray extension that he had. Since then i have managed to actually save Nana, but Red has only grown back 3 extensions. After a terrible swing with Swim...

    So I have had my halfmoon tale beta Princeton for a few months now. I keep in a 1.5 gallon tank and clean the take every week, doing a 75% water change. I add the correct amount of water conditioner, and aqua salt. I always keep the water at a normal temp. A week or so ago I noticed his tail...
