  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So back at the end of summer I posted here about fin rot on my betta's tail, and have been treating him since August. I'd done about six consecutive weeks of myxazin treatment, which seemed to really clear it up; there was new tail growth and everything. Recently I've noticed the fin rot...
  2. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About 5 days ago I brought home a mustard gas betta. Since I've gotten him his tail is half black, but it's always been like that and isn't spreading. People over at reddit have been screaming for me to chock my tank full of meds, but I really want to make sure because I know some fish...
  3. Betta Fish Care
    So it's in the mail for Mesmer (who I think has ick and something else idk what so cure all) but I've never medicated a fish before nor do I know how. The only info I got from amazon was "one fizzing tablet treats 5 gallons" and something about having to add more every day. I think I'm going to...

I didn't do anything about it because it didn't (and doesn't) seem to be causing him any discomfort, but now that I know more...

    My betta fish (Colonial Mustard) has fin rot. Its a pretty mild case, but it is persistent. It popped up a few weeks ago and I treated the tank with a little bit of aquarium salt and that seemed to keep it at bay until recently. Today I noticed a decent chunk of his tail fin missing. Here is...
  7. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Everything on here leaves me paranoid about illnesses and I would like to know what medicines to have on hand for Betta illnesses. What works with what, warnings on copper-based meds and such. I'm asking because I don't want to be caught off guard if something happens and I cannot get the...
  8. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hey Guys! I'm still pretty new to this forum & let me just say that I LOVE it here! Everyone is so helpful & relatable! OK, so I need some advice. My betta is not sick yet, but he DOES have some severe tail biting issues. Anyways, how can I have a successful hospital/quarantine tank on hand...

    I found this after lots of searching and it really breaks down diseases and symptoms to incredible detail and length, causes and treatments and what medications do. It is a PDF full of valuable information and reading it has made me feel more confident to own a fish. Hope you get out of it as...
