  2. Tiny holes on edge of caudal fin-- fin rot??

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello everyone! I got my halfmoon doubletail plakat about two weeks ago from a local Petco. He had no signs of fin rot and for the first few days he was extremely active and seemed quite happy. Half a week after I got him he began to develop these tiny clear spots/holes in both halves of his...
  3. Betta Fins wearing through between the rays!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a 3yr old Betta that's having issues with holes wearing through between the rays of his fins! It's really weird and all the holes seem to develop midway between his body and the tips of his fins. At first, I thought that it was just discoloration as the fins just seemed to thin. Now...

    My betta has had a few holes in a couple of his fins for about a week. I began treating him with AQ salt on the 14th and there seems to be very little change. I originally thought it was fin rot but the holes look pretty circular and are in the middle of his tail, closer to his body. I really...
  7. Active Betta with Finrot?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've had my Betta that I named Swimmy for about a month now. When I first had him I knew nothing about cycling the tank and sadly he was in it during the cycling process. I noticed his fins had started to turn black and started to deteriorate. I went out and bought Melafix which seemed to work...
