    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...

    I’ll keep the intro short since I kinda went to town on the questionnaire: My girlfriend and I liberated (bought) Jeph from an abandoned Walmart fish department that was removed less than a month later. His health has never been great but seems to be declining quickly with a rough case of fin...

    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...

    Hi guys, So I recently started a planted aquarium, and just the other day added two female bettas (yes, I realize now that only 2 females together is a controversial topic). When I first brought the girls home, they had a little bit of a tussle, but after I split them up they retreated to their...

    Hi all, I'm a new betta keeper and need some advice. I bought a betta about a month and a half ago and put him through two weeks of quarantine with API General Cure, API Erythromycin, and Hikari Ich X. He looked fine after going through that, but in the last few days has started showing some...

    Hello, Our fish Quasi, whom we've had since February, has suddenly changed his temperament. Drastically. He has always been in great health, very funny and playful and sociable. He has never been one to hide anywhere, always in your face wanting attention. He recently went about 3 weeks or so...

    Jet has had a small lump on one side of his body for a few months. It didn't seem to bother him or affect his appetite or energy, so I assumed it was nothing to be concerned about and figured he might just be eating too much. Recently, it has become much larger and he is lethargic. The last...

    I adopted my betta 6 days ago from Walmart. He hasn't eaten since, I think he nibbled a bite of pea, but it was hard to tell. I've tried pellets and freeze dried blood worms. I've also tried feeding him with tweezers and the food directly on his mouth and he didn't really respond and actually...

    Hey there everybody, I've got a stressed/ sick male betta for weeks now and I am out of ideas on how to help him. Currently has major clamped fins, losing color, lethargic, and hangs out near the top of the tall all day not moving. If he does move it's in frantic, sporadic dashes for a short...
