    Hi all. Title says it all. Mr. Kona is sick again and I have no idea what’s going on. He’s just laying at the bottom of the tank gasping for air. Sometimes on his side.

    I got my double tail male 1 1/2 days ago. I've tried feeding him pellets and flakes, but he won't eat. I think I've done some research and learned they're carnivores, but my pellets contain shrimp. I'm afraid he won't eat, although it's barely been two days. I think from the store I've got him...

    My betta fish Sushi became quite constipated when I left him under a friend's care while I was out of town. This was almost 2 weeks ago, and his behavior was normal.

    The past 10 days he hasn’t eaten at all. He just looks at the food and doesn’t eat it. He has been having trouble swimming downwards and just floats, sometimes on his sides (scaring me). His fins also look a bit frayed. I think he might be nipping them. It could be finrot but I’m not sure. He...
