    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I found my little Charlie outside of his tank, I don't know how long he had been out. I thought he was dead but when i touched him he moved a little bit.

  3. Empty tank?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi, so I've had my betta for almost two weeks now and recently when I checked on him I noticed his fins were slightly shredded. It doesn't look serious however, and he still acts healthy so I put it down to the decorations. Turns out my cave and fake coral were sharp in places I hadn't even...
  4. Several fin tears not healing

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    (( I hate that my first post is an emergency post I but hi )) My super delta betta McGee has many tears in his fins (primarily caudal) that don't get better. There aren't any signs of infection and is definitely not fin rot. He's had them for too long and they don't get worse or better. I've...
  5. Shredded looking tail not improving

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Alright so around two weeks ago, I noticed that my fish's tail started to look raggedy and split. I thought it was because of the plastic plant I had in his tank and I was planning on buying him a new one, even though he's been living with the plastic one fine for probably about a year now. It...

    Betta Fish Care
    I came home from work today and Fishie's caudal fin looks shredded!! I'm so upset!! I don't know what happened! There's nothing in his tank with sharp edges. Do you think he's biting his tail? I haven't seen him do it, but I don't know what else it could be. Fin rot looks different than a bunch...

    Hey, guys. So, I'm pretty sure my betta fish has fin rot. His fins started getting little holes, they stared shredding, and they're still shredding. Now he even has white at the tips in a couple of spots. I'm worried. I have the Jungle Aquarium Sea Salt (Here it is...
  8. Missing Scales

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    When I looked at my fish Poseidon yesterday, I noticed he was hanging around at the bottom of the tank. I took a closer look and saw that his fins appeared shredded at the ends and he has blotches on the top of his head as if some of his scales had fallen off. He isn't bloated or anything, and...
  9. Betta caught in filter

    Betta Fish Care
    This morning I woke up to find my beautiful betta, Scoli, caught underneath the Whisper filter and his fins are destroyed. At first he was barely moving or breathing. He swam around erratically a couple of times and now he is hiding and breathing more normally. Any advice to help him heal...
