  1. Help! Dropsy?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Yesterday I noticed my betta's stomach looked a bit round and bloated, so I started looking up what it could be. I found that he could just be bloated but became worried when one site said that it could be dropsy because it is more noticeable when you look from the top of the water down at the...
  2. How to safely use Maracyn 1 & 2 TOGETHER?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi! So I've posted a couple times before, continuously trying to figure out what's ailing Ruuti - He's been sick for several months now and he's starting to show signs of ulcer-like sores. I treated him for fungal infections first (after conservative treatments like water changes and aquarium...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone!! So my betta Ruuti is still seeming unwell (I posted about him a while back - I can provide a link to that thread if needed)... He's starting to lose scales on his head and the area looks kinda "moldy" - NOT white or fuzzy (I tried treating him for fungal infections with API Fungus...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My veiltail betta cosmo has had popeye for a while and I just got maracyn 2 for him. He is in a 1.77 gallon hospital tank for now, with a heater and filter going without a cartridge, just to stir things up. I already did the 5 day treatment for him. His eyes weren't looking any better but his...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    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...

    Will Maracyn-two work in a non filtered tank? Or do I need the water flow for it to work? Thanks!
  7. Betta Fish with Popeye - Day 6

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, My betta fish got popeye 6 days ago. I immediately cleaned his bowl intensively and went to the pet store. I bought bettafix. I have been treating him with that accordingly for the past 6 days. He has not eaten in 6 days, but the popeye has reduced and is now hardly noticeable. He does seem...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I am currently treating my lethargic beta who's been sick for a few weeks with Maracyn I and II. After going to the store, I just bought General Cure, which seems to describe "Wasting Disease" as what is happening to my fish. My question is: can that be mixed with Maracyn I/II treatment or...

  12. Advanced fin rot D;

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Oh, Baller. I've had Balthier for a little while now, he's a cheery little man. I got him from aquabid with no issues. His fins are HUGE, which I always had a feeling might be a not-so-great thing... I was right. Balthier's absolutely ENORMOUS dorsal has had issue with splitting due to its...
