    Sorry for the bad photo, I'll get a better one soon. He had finrot but I healed him, now he's regrowing his fins. Then a few weeks ago, I noticed his scales turning this pinkish color. He was still eating, swimming, active. Now he's in 2 gallon heated tank with some aquarium salt. I have no clue...

    So I noticed that Mojo has a greenish white-ish coloration (Well it looks like color) to him near his ventral fins and it's slowly spreading up his face. He's had a bit of this color ever since I got him like 2 months back and none of my other fish have it. He also looks like he has some scales...

    My little Butterfly Delta Tail Male, Felix, I noticed has a shiny scale, like it glimmers in the light and I was wondering if that has happened to any others and if its something to worry about. He likes to sleep on his gravel btw and makes bubble nests all the time, as far as I can see, he is...

    Hi there, one of my bettas is loosing his scales. Ink is a petstore crowntail, and today I saw that he'd scraped a massive amount of scales off his head somehow. He is in a three gallon half moon tank with live plants, I took out his ship in case he was scraping against that. His temperature...

    Hello all, ever since I've had my little Tales, I noticed he had a few missing scales at the top of his head. I'm wondering if this is a problem or nothing to worry about :-? IMG_20130329_151843.jpg

    Lol, Finnick and I were doing so well. After his tail becoming increasingly worse while at the dorm, and then healing once I brought him home, I have not brought him back to the dorm yet. The bad news is that I can't watch him from day to day. He has ripped his caudal fin, which is no big deal...

    Hey guys! I have a male betta. I just noticed that the scales under his mouth are becoming darker and i think their a little raised. Ive attached two photos. Any ideas as to what it is?

    I just noticed this blotch right in the middle of his body. When you shine a flashlight on it from behind it appears to have some texture to it. He is acting fine and eating as usual. Any ideas? THanks!

    I'm brand new to these forums, even though I have read through them as a guest quite a bit, and am hoping someone can provide some insight as to what is wrong with my betta (if anything). He has developed a spot of blue on his side that has some unusual looking scales (raised? dead? peeling?)...

    Just got a girl in with a yellowish/milky covering over one eye, isn't fuzzy at all and is not overgrown dragon scales. It looks like a yellowish cap on one eye, eye doesn't seem to be swollen. She also has a patch on her side where it looks like she might have lost a few scales, and there is a...

    So, I've had my male betta for almost six months now. He's been very healthy, regular changes in water, made sure he wasn't over fed, but fed diligently. Although I did find out that he has fin rot, poor thing. He's my first, and i didn't know it existed so it's very advanced at this point...
