    Betta Fish Care
    Hey guys, So I got my Betta fish about a month ago maybe three weeks. And everything was perfect he was so happy and healthy and he loved his home. This morning I woke up and went to check on him and the stupid tank was leaking after only a few weeks like not even two months old, and the...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi there! So before I started reading the threads on here I thought I knew a decent amount about bettas, but not as much as the owners on here, so I signed up. Anyway onto the reason we're on this thread. This is Clyde, he's a three year old crown tail and my first ever fish. Recently I noticed...

  4. my betta died suddenly - I want to know why

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My betta died quite suddenly! This is not a eulogy, I am specifically posting to this thread because I want answers. There was very little warning, but there was some. I am a grown man but still I am quite shocked and disappointed! I have taken a few post-mortem photos (attached). I have frozen...
  5. Very sick betta, please help

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Oh my gosh I need help. My betta is not doing good at all, and hasn't been well for a while. I'm not sure if it's old age or what but he doesn't swim anymore, he just sits in his plants. Today he's struggling to get his food which I have to basically drop right next to his mouth for him to even...

    Betta Fish Care
    I got a half moon Betta a week ago from Petco and he still hasn't eaten! He sits in one corner of the tank and hardly moves. The tank is brand new: 3 gallons, with heater at 80 degrees, a filter, bubbling system. I first gave him pellets, then switched to flakes and some bloodworms. But I...
  7. Twitching, banging into tank

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    As of last night I completed a 100% water change for my crowntail male, but I decided that I wanted to switch his tanks, moving him into a square 2 gallon tank previously occupied by minnows (I moved the minnows into his 1 gallon vase). I've had him for about a month and a half now and this is...
  8. Betta fish not moving from spot in days. :(

    Betta Fish Care
    What is wrong with Smokey? He's been like this for almost a week now. He hasn't been eating, or swimming, and he just sits on top of this leaf the entire day and either sleeps or sulks. I'm really worried about him. I don't see any sign of disease. He's in a 5 gallon tank, with an...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi I'm new here so I'm really hoping to get some help for my betta Yunno. For the last week or so he seems to have been getting sicker despite my attempts to help him get better. At first I thought he had a swim bladder problem but seems to have progressed worse from there. Now all he does is...
  10. My Betta is not acting his normal self D:

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Today at 11am when I came to check my Betta, I noticed he did not eat the food I gave him earlier. He was not flaring at me and not swimming around all excitedly like every other day. He just stood still and did not acknowledge my presence. Housing Size: 5 galon Temperature: Above 70 F Filter...
  11. Is my fish sick?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I bought two bettas yesterday afternoon, (both are females). They seem to get along pretty well and they live in a one gallon tank. (I am unable to buy any tanks that are any bigger, right now.) The temperature is fine, but I'm not sure about pH, nitrite, ammonia, etc (and I can't test that...
  12. New Betta Mom Needs SERIOUS Help!! Very sick Betta, I think time is running out...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello - I found this website after doing a serious amount of research for my poor little rescued Betta whom I named Vegas. (In loving memory of the last fish I had when I was all of 9 years old, a gold fish - that was actually silver, named Nevada.) For starters, I am not a fish person (or...
  13. sick fish :'(

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a veil tailed male betta fish named Bluey (he's blue). For about a week and 1/2 now he has been lying at the bottom of the tank. I have moved him to a separate hospital tank. He has refused any food. At first his belly was swollen, but he went to the bathroom and then his belly went...
  14. Pinkish Lumps on Edward

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My roommate and I have had our Betta Edward for a little over a year now. We change the water about once a week, and the water is at room temperature (its a plastic tank). For a while now he hasn't been swimming around as much, he just kinda lays in the fake plant in the middle of his tank. He...
