  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, everyone. I am new to the forum. I have a question about my betta: Initially, I thought she was having external parasites as I noticed some brown raised dots on her skin, so I started dosing with paraguard. She would become really lethargic when dosed with paraguard, so I stopped. At...

    So I’ve posted about Iggy here before, he has lots of background lol. I’ve been keeping an eye on his weight because he stopped eating for the most part a while back, and we discovered on here that he had been eating the little copepods in his tank. I have been noticing that he’s been much more...

    First noticed my betta not swimming as well as usual and, I thought, looking like scales might be starting to pinecone. Treated for dropsy with Kanaplex and regular water changes and while he still stayed at bottom of tank, breathing a little heavy, he also wasn’t appearing to get worse. Noticed...

    I have only had him about 4 days as he was an unexpected gift I did what I could to set up a temporary tank until I can get a stand to house a bigger one. He is currently in a 2g with a gentle filter and heater about (78F). I've tested the water and the only thing that seems high is the PH. I...

    Hello, My betta fish has been sick for a few days and he has been lethargic. A few days ago, I saw him floating upside down and I thought he was dead. Now he won’t stay off the bottom of the tank. His gills appear to be black and his fins are sort of ragged (although they have been that way...

    Hi everyone! I’ve had my betta, Vito, for 2 years now. He’s a koi betta, so I know he’s prone to small scale tumors. He’s living in a 10 gallon tank by himself. The parameters are within normal with the exception of salinity (more on that in a minute). He was fine until I got COVID. I was...

    Hello, I’ve had my fish for almost three years now! I’ve noticed that he’s gotten less energetic and paler over the time but I thought it was just due to old age. The past couple weeks he’s slower to get to his food. The last three days have gotten worse and I really thought he was going to die...

    There was a power outage at my house, and it started when I wasn't home. When I came home, I checked my betta's tank and it was WAY too cold. I carefully took my tank downstairs and plugged his heater into the generator, and within a few hours his temperature got back to 78°. BUT he hasn't been...

    Please note: I am adopting this betta, Pedro, from my workplace. When he was in the office, the filter was never running because my coworkers believed he did not like the current it created. The water was never changed; water was only added when it began to run low due to evaporation. They would...

    I came home yesterday and noticed that my betta, Po, was acting very lethargic and laying with fins clamped at the bottom of his tank. I tested the water and everything looked normal but I did a water change anyway but this had not helped. Now he is hiding in the back a terra-cotta pot (with no...

    My betta fish is very sick, I've had him for a little over a year and he has been very healthy until about 2 months ago. He started to dart around his tank impulsively (usually happened at night.) As time went on he grew more and more sick. The darting behavior kept getting worse and he was...
