    Here we go again, I think my Betta is having the start of dropsy. He is still perky (When he wakes up in the morning he zooms around the tank flaring just for the fun of it for a solid 5 minutes or so) and has no trouble eating, but his scales are worrying me. Further more I realize he is...

    Hello, so one of my male bettas, Moka, got sick a week or two (maybe a little more) ago. He developed this whitish sore on his side, behind his fin near his gills. I moved him to a one gallon for treatment, since I didn't want the corys to get sick. Now the sore is gone, but the same spot has...

    For the health questions/answers, see my previous thread here. A few weeks ago, my betta Gallifrey became ill. He had been becoming less active over the course of a few months, but we had just moved and he was getting less interaction than he was used to, so we didn't think much of it. So...

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum because I'm in need of help. My betta fish has been sick for a little while now. Started off with a bloated belly, but now it has progressed to whole body. I have done my research and I'm almost positive the result is dropsy. Bloating, not eating, and...

    Hello everyone, I feel like I have no where to turn. So this betta (Squish is his name) has progressively gotten sicker. He was originally mine and then passed on to a friend, he did not receive the best care at her home so I have taken him back and now need to help him get better. Squish is a...

    I thought I remembered reading something about adding epsom salt to the water and causing mild pineconing but I can't find it now. I noticed tonight that my very sick fish is now pineconed a bit and I'm worried but I don't want to assume the worst. I added 1 1/2 tsp to his tank last night, a...

    Hey guys, So I lost on of my girls over the summer due to Dropsy, I didn’t catch it until late because i was treating, with AQ, for velvet (not sure if it was velvet but it has left). Yesterday I actually lost a little lady over night, she seemed healthy and fine when I saw her the night...

    So, one of my guppies I found rather firmly wedged under a large cave structure in my 10. No idea how long he'd been there but he was trying to get back out. I got him free, doubtful for damage from me, and I'm still clueless as to how it happened. After that he seemed rather dazed from being...

    Hello, My betta has dropsy, I noticed he was pineconing and had a lump on his right side. I did some treatments with salt and pimafix for about a week now I am only doing salt. That was about 3 weeks ago the pineconing and lump on the right side are now gone but his stomach is bloated (it was...

    Hello all. My little guy was subject to accidental melafix poisoning about 2 months ago. He was nearly dead, but I managed to cure him with BettaRevice but now I think the damage that had been done has finally caught up with him and I wanted some advice on what I should do (does he have a...

    Hi, I just need some advice about my HM betta, Dreamweaver. He means a lot to me (I call my fish my babies) and I'm not entirely sure what is going on/what to do. The last few days (maybe this has gone on for about a week?) his tail has had quite a substantial tear in it, I suspected a blow out...

    This is the swollen double tail I had posted about before, where it seemed he had gotten ammonia burn along with fin rot. I had updated the thread because I had remembered he had gotten a seashell (direct from the ocean) put in the tank without it being cleaned properly first, but I didn't get a...
  14. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, everyone. It was around four or five days ago that I started noticing that Pixie was acting a bit odd. She's normally the most hyper fish I've seen, and she was hanging out by a corner under the filter, not even rushing for food. (It was hell to even get her attention.) Then when I...
