    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I need honest opinions here, folks. My first betta, Sherlock, has had Lymphocytosis for almost a year now, and up until now it appeared to be manageable and not spreading. He for a while has had four spots near his eye that I figured would grow eventually, but now they are beginning to. He also...

    Can you use tetracycline on a half gallon fish tank that doesn't have a filter. Or does the water need to be aerated ?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Shota-chan, one of my male bettas, has something wrong with his eye. It doesn't look like pop-eye (I've only ever had one fish who got pop-eye), at least not tome. It looks like he injured his eye and it's about to fall off. I will post pics and tank stats in a minute.

  17. Pop eye or just Buddy?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Okay, I'm getting paranoid where Buddy is concerned. He is my first betta, and was in extremely bad shape when I got him, really bad looking fins, one gill flap stuck open etc. His fins look better, his gill is the same. He does not have any signs of being ill. He eats great, had energy, and...
