    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    It seems like after one fish heals, another gets sick.:cry: One of my female bettas, Baybi, started to develop a weird white stringy growth on her body and fins. I'm not sure if it's cotton wool disease or where she has been stressed. She currently lives in a small tank, less than 1 gallon...
