    I’m pleading to my husband to understand that our girl has a parasite and he claims it’s an injury healing from a recent attempted breeding. He didn’t believe me the last time I spotted it on our other female (that ultimately died from being covered in them) until I was able to get a good enough...

    I'm not sure if this is an injury/emergency or not but this post can be removed or moved if it should not be in this part of the forum by a moderator. :) One of my baby bettas, Peony, has what looks like a bump or some sort of marking on her head. It's an x-mark within a triangle-shaped area...

    Hi! This is my beauty Auggie. I have had her for just under a year and she is the queen of my 10 gallon planted mini community tank. Within the past week or so, I noticed this strange bump on her side that is not going away. Auggie is very prone to injury as she purposefully wiggles herself into...

    Thee is suddenly a sort of like…separation on her nose; or a white slash…or something. It’s so hard to tell. I have NO idea what this is. I took her out of her tank so I could get a closer look. This is def not her mouth open although I know it looks that way. We’ve had her for a year and just...

    Hey y'all! I've noticed my betta has these odd spots on his back and am not sure what they are to treat them effectively. Housing: How many gallons is your tank? 3.5 Does it have a filter? yes Does it have a heater? yes What temperature is your tank? Not sure, but it is a 10 watt heater Does...

This is our first betta and our only fish. We've had him since December 11th. 10 gallon tank, water...

    Hi there. Below, I have filled out the form I saw on another post in this forum. I’m new to forums in general so please bear with me if I format something incorrectly. I have a male dumbo betta named Gajah who, unfortunately, isn’t doing so well. I’m nowhere near an expert on fish keeping, just...

    Hello, I've had my sweet veil tail for about 3.5 years now. I went on a business trip last week and had my friend feed him for me for the ~8 days I was gone. When I got back I noticed this white spot on his head. When I took a pic it looked like a scratch but I'm wondering if someone with a more...

    (Feels a little bit ironic to be posting in this section myself, but I'm a bit stumped and am looking for some opinions) Last Wednesday (5/6) my betta Polaris was totally fine. On Thursday when I woke up, she was holding her spine crooked... And hasn't straightened out since. I'll give more...

    Hi everyone! Okay, so I'm a little concerned with my boy, Squiggles. When I first got him just over a month ago, he fell quite sick with suspected swim bladder. Thankfully, that has cleared up nicely and he's been a happy boy since. However, around that time, I noticed that his tail fin...
  13. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have had Prince Bubblegum for 7 days as of December 23. I'm starting to think that he won't be able to recover and that maybe his swim bladder issues were caused by an injury. Is there anything I can do to improve his quality of life? Does anyone have any ideas on how I can help my little...

    Hi, I have had my betta for 3 months, I have him in a 3 gallon tank with a filter and heater. I bought a suction hose to clean his gravel and tried to use it for the first time today. Turns out my tank is too tall and not wide enough for me to create the suction it needs, needless to say I was...

    Hey all! I noticed my rosetail butterfly betta ...Lazarus....was very lethargic and would not eat today. I then noticed his fin on top was shredded and it was a bit red where his fin met his body!! All of his other fins look great so I ruled out fin rot. Also, I remember yesterday that he was...

    I came home today and my fishbowl was knocked over on the floor but my fish was still alive miraculously. I was the house cat, but I couldn't believe the cat didn't eat him. Part of my fish's upper tail fin is missing. He looks really sad is more brown than usual and he sometimes flops over. He...

    I'm a newbie to good betta care and I am trying my best to learn, I honestly thought I was doing well until this incident. This was accidentally cross posted to betta chat. I have two betta fish each in 3 gallon (max size per tank allowed in my apartment), filtered, heated tanks with live and...

    I have two betta fish each in 3 gallon (max size per tank allowed in my apartment), filtered, heated tanks with live and silk plants. I thought I was doing so well creating the optimum environment when I majorly messed up yesterday. I bought a tank "hideaway" for my seconded betta when I...

    In early November my Betta ripped his tail on a sharp plant (I removed it right away and replaced it with a safe one) and he was fine except the injury got infected with a very aggressive tail rot. I treated with Maracyn-2 and the tail rot went away for about a month. His tail was healing very...

    So I was rescaping my tank and when I finished I added the betta back into the tank. Instead of getting my net to scope him up I decided to gently hold him in the palm of my hand and put him in. I had done this with my old bettas with no problems. But this time, his left pectoral fin isn't...
