    Hi! New user, avid lurker. Backstory: I got a betta on an impulse about 3 months ago, because I had one as a kid and I felt like I knew how to take care of it. Then I started doing research about proper care and tried to upgrade him to a larger aquarium that had a built in filter, which I...

    So I had this guy for about 2 weeks now. He came to me on the edge of death: emaciated, blind, trouble swimming, completely clamped, fungal infection, etc. You probably saw his progress in the "Blind, Stiff, Slimy" thread I started for his rehabilitation. He's currently on API Fungal Cure and...

    I noticed my baby betta acting strange last Wednesday (3-12-14), but started getting worried two days later when I decided to do some research. It appears that he has clamped fins and possibly inflamed gills, but other than that, there are no other signs of infections (i.e. cottony patches...

    11/4/2013 Panda Comes Home So I ended up discovering the betta world when I felt I needed a small companion for the new studio apartment I just moved into. The place definitely needed some life since I live alone. There was a no pet policy that came with the lease, however, the tenant did...

    Hah, see what I did there? I'm so punny, I crack myself up. Some of you may remember Giovanni, I posted about him here a little over two months ago, where he exhibited symptoms of the "Mystery disease" Where their fins turn black, fall off, and they die very quickly, except, he didn't die. He's...

    I went away for a few days. My husband was feeding our fish while I was gone and did not notice that the betta was starting to get sick. (He's responsible but was sick himself and not at his most observant.) By the time I got back, Gilgamesh was in pretty rough shape. He was staying at the...
