    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Zuko's fins are falling apart. Under different circumstances, I would assume fin rot, but this started from the middle of his fin as a hole and spread throughout it. Pieces of his fins are literally lying on the bottom of his tank. He started getting pale about 2 weeks ago. I changed the water...

    If I watch her from my bed, she can't see me and goes pale and striped (horizontal). But if I put my face close to the tank, she comes and looks and me and becomes vibrant again. I leave my room often, and I'm at school for a lot of the day. I'm worried about her being stressed while I'm gone...

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My fish P.K. has been having swim bladder problems recently. He's gone pale and hasn't wanted to eat for the last few days. I figure it isn't a death sentence, but left unchecked could snowball into something serious. There a couple white dots on each of his gills. He had trouble staying upright...
