    In the past couple of days, one of my crowntails stopped swimming. He's ordinarily quite active, swimming around or building a bubble nest. But then he stopped. I moved him into a hospital and he's more active now. I finally got a chance to look at him and he has silver around his chin and his...

    Hello! My name is Nichole and I am a new betta owner. I got my fish, Schven, at the end of June as an early birthday present from my best friend. He is currently in a Topfin 3.5 gallon tank with a API Superclean 10 filter and an HT10 Tetra heater. For the first week (ish) he was doing great in...

    Hi all, When my boy flares, there are two identical scarlet splotches in the middle part of his gills. The rest is black. One splotch on either side. He seems to have no trouble breathing at all though (at least, it doesn't look like it). Is this inflamed gills? He's always been like this but I...

    My betta fish has been sick for about a week and a half now. He seems very bottom-heavy and lays on his side a lot.

    Hi, my Betta fish has been acting strange for about a week. He's my first and I'm quite inexperienced in recognizing symptoms. When he goes to get air many of bubbles come out of his gills. Other than that he had been acting normal but he's started to hide in the corner behind the heater and...

    I bought my sweet Vladimir today, and he has 1 inflamed gill. I guess I didn't really think about it when I bought him, but now I'm noticing it. And it's just one inflamed gill, not both. He is in a 1 gallon tank, with a light, a heater, and the water has been treated with a conditioner. He...
