    Hi everyone! I noticed a white spot on my betta's back a few months ago, but didn't think much of it because he was a white/blue cellophane betta at the time of purchase.

    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.

    Hi! My betta, Queenie, was looking awesome before I went on vacation for a week. I performed a water change the day I left and asked a fellow betta owner to feed her twice a day for the week. I performed another water change when I returned to keep on schedule, and Queenie looked great besides...

    Hi guys! So I've been having this problem with my fish for a long time now, I just didn't know it was going on because he changed colors on me when I bought him and he has a very strange personality so I didn't see the signs as something worrisome. My super delta started getting red streaks on...

    So I've been informed that one of the symptoms of fin rot is the thinning of fin, is that true? And if so, does this look like fin rot to you?

    A few months ago: Today: Okay, so, my betta, Henry, has fins that have been looking a bit different lately. There was an accident that happened a while ago (he fell to the bottom of the tank right after I tried putting him back into his tank), which left his fins looking a little thinner...
