    I purchased a betta fish last week named Franklin and moved him into my now empty 5 gallon. The tank is cycled with a heater at 77 F, and a filter. The parameters are ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10, pH 7.6. A couple days after having Frank, I noticed he would occasionally flash or itch on...

    Yesterday I got my first ever betta fish. I have a 5 gallon tank that is planted and filtered, though I do not own a heater since I live in Indonesia and it’s hot enough here. The room has a steady temperature and the aquarium isn’t near any air conditioning. Anyway, as a beginner, I am quite...

    I recently noticed my betta had been acting erratic (I.e banging against things, not really eating) and just the other day I saw this white spot that had formed on his belly. Not sure if it’s ich or something else. Any help would be appreciated!

    The past 10 days he hasn’t eaten at all. He just looks at the food and doesn’t eat it. He has been having trouble swimming downwards and just floats, sometimes on his sides (scaring me). His fins also look a bit frayed. I think he might be nipping them. It could be finrot but I’m not sure. He...

    Currently, I'm treating my Betta for ich in a 1-gallon bowl with aquarium salt and a very small amount of paraguard and I'm planning on doing somewhat daily water changes (I'm very busy with work and school so some days I'm not even home from 6am-10pm). He doesn't seem too stressed in the...

    I’ve had Ru for several months. He’s in a 5 gallon Biorb life tank (comes with substrate with beneficial bacteria and filter.). He is fed a combo of frozen brine shrimp, frozen mysis shrimp, pellets, and blood worms. 1 moss ball, plenty of hiding/napping places. Tank is cycled, I think. Recently...

    Okay a little backstory here, I purchased by betta few weeks ago and his health seems to be deteriorating. I tried introducing some tank mates to his 2.3 gallon imagitarium tank but he did not get along with the snail so I had to stick to oto cats. I think one of the oto cats gave him ich as he...

    Hello, my betta Whiteboard has had a small but noticeable white patch or growth(?) on his left side for awhile now. It was already present when I bought him from the store, but I had thought it was part of the ich which he also had. I treated him for ich and all the ich spots went away within...

    I have had my Betta fish for one year now and yesterday when I went to go feed him I noticed a very small white dot on his head. I’ve never seen it before so I immediately researched it. Everything I read says that my betta may have Ich. The white spot isn’t raised. I went to the store and...

    So I noticed a white spot on by betta's tail fin right up next to his body. It almost looks like a blister or a whithead. Only just noticed it in the past day or two and see no others on him. I dont think it looks like ich, but I'm no expert. Can anyone tell me what this might be? I got this...

    Overnight (probably), some light spots appeared on Reggie's head. My first thoughts were ick, but it doesn't look like ick to me. They aren't salt-sized, they aren't even that white. The photos aren't too good at showing, but they're actually sort of flesh-colored? As if the black pigment has...

    Hello! So, I have had my betta, Poseidon for a few months now in a two gallon tank. I do partial water changes about once a week, unless I have a feeling like I need to do it more. So far, he has seemed to be pretty healthy. The first few days I was worried about him because he was laying at...

    Hey everyone, sorry for the lengthy post but it seems I'm the typical sucker for the sweet, puppy-eyed (not Pop Eye) betta fish from the pet store. I've been letting a dirted, planted tank run for about 2 weeks now (will go the Prime route for cycling to be safe). I was planning on looking for a...
