    Betta Fish Care
    My Betta's fins have been getting more and more tattered recently, despite being in a big 2.5 gallon tank. Has he been fin nipping? I'm pretty sure there is nothing sharp in the tank that could catch his fins. Here's the best picture I could get of him.

    Can plastic plants rip betta fins? And for ripped fins what medication would you use? I am currently using BettaFix which I treated a previous betta with for open sores.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I went to the fish section of Walmart to pick up something for my betta a week and a half ago when I see that, yet again, some heartless jerk put two bettas in the same cup. One was completely fine, while the other one was huddled in the corner, torn to bits, and surrounded by what appeared to...
  8. Betta's fins are ragged and holey

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello all! For some time now I thought my betta had fin rot because the ends of his rays look crooked and thinned on the sides. Some rays even look like theyve had tiny slivers sliced so that the thin bit of fin sticks out at weird angles and is curled. Also the bit of fin in between his rays...

    my black and orange fish, Klaus has something wrong with him, but I don't know what. His fins look like either fin rot or tail biting and on his black body he has white splotches. I don't think it's ick because as I recall, that looks more like salt. But here's the problem: I just had 3 fish...
  12. Bad looking fins on new betta. Quarantine?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, I just bought two female bettas yesterday, along with a 1.77 gallon tank. The selection for females was pretty bland, so I picked a black with red tint and black with blue tint, and named them Peeps and Beeps respectively. What I didn't seem to notice at the pet store was that Peeps fins...
