    I rescued a Betta 2 1/2 years ago, and have kept him in a 2.5 gallon tank with reverse osmosis RO water and Seachem Replenish, doing 100% water changes every two weeks. He has a filter and a heater. He has been eating one pellet of New Life Spectrum twice a day, and has had one fast day a...

    Hi I'm new to this website and I have a couple of questions to make. My betta has fin rot and I noticed it a month ago. I treated him with Betta Fix and it didn't work, I noticed one of his fins started to curl so I tried using AQ salt. I used it for about 2 weeks before i noticed that his...

    A few weeks ago I thought my fish had fin rot because the tips of his fins, mostly his dorsal fin, were a faint white. My fish was still as active as ever and I was advised that it was probably his fins regrowing because fin rot is usually black. This morning I noticed that his dorsal fin is...

    My betta has developed dropsy after his long time of being sick. His spine is progressively turning more S'd and he's pineconed. I've been researching extensively and can't seem to find an answer but does anyone have any suggested antibiotics for dropsy? I keep searching for maracyn-two but I...

    Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I have had my beautiful Betta Ollie for 1 year and eight months now. He has always been the pinnacle of health. No problems at all before this one. He has almost completely lost his dorsal fin, which happened very quickly, so quickly I don't think I caught...

    Alright, my male betta has fin rot. I've tried salt already and haven't had any improvement, it's still slowly getting worse. I'd like to try treating with Maracyn 1 and 2 but I have a few options and I'm not sure which is best. My betta is currently in a 5 gal that has no cycle because I've...

    I have a question about how to use Maracyn 2. The instructions say to add the medication everyday. I have my betta fish in a sort of "hospital tank." It is a 1 gallon tank, and I have put in the medication. What I'm not sure about now is how to put in the second dose and the doses after...

Yesterday I dragged my dad over to Walmart and I got Cosmo a Whisper 3i Internal Filter and it's working AMAZINGLY! :-) And.... A couple weeks ago, I updated the aquarium (1 Gal), Gravel, Heater and...

    I noticed that my betta had a bad case of fin rot. I used bettafix in the past and realized it was harming their lung and ultimately killing my betta. I bought maracyn 2 for the fin rot, but dosing is very hard for me to figure out. I have a 2.5 gallon tank and the power in each pack is for 10...
