  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, My betta fish (Marty) isn't moving or eating. I got him a few days ago, and until yesterday, he was moving around quite a bit, and now he just kinda lays in the corner, or in his house. I feed him 3-4 pellets of food twice day, but he hasn't eaten them. I removed the food from the tank...

    Today, I noticed he's been very active and happy, doing things like flaring, eating alot, jumping, and not having relaxed fins. But I've also noticed that he will sometimes clamp his fins, which is a recurring problem, he will sometimes just sit under his tiger toy (he loves it), and he's...

    So, this morning I went to Caroline's tank and did her regular checkup thing. (basically I just sit at my desk where she is and watch her to see if she's okay (I recommend doing this ) And I noticed that she can't swim down. I was watching her for a while and it would look like she was trying to...

    First of all, I am a very empathetic person, and I can't stand the idea of my fish (named Lauda) being uncomfortable. Unfortunately, I tend to overreact when I shouldn't, and I'm not sure if I caused a problem or if there is a problem. I just want Lauda to be healthy and happy... And I'm feeling...

    I have a 2 1/2 year old half moon beta that has been absolutely healthy until the past couple weeks, been in same aquarium and same care for 2 1/2 years. He is eating, but very lethargic, lays on his heater or bottom of tank, seems to be laboring when breathing. He doesn't want to swim, when he...

    This is my little buddy Lucifer (name is part joke, part his color, a lot his attitude) I asked about moving him on another thread, but ai think he is sick. His gills have some black under them, and his fins have brown or black tips (that color seems to vary) I am concerned it is fin rot, as I...

    So, Neptune, my delta tail betta male hasn't been eating at all. We just got him a few days ago. He swims around a bit, but he doesn't do much. Ever since Saturday, I have put food in his tank, but he just won't eat it. It's a Tetra 1.5 gallon tank... Does he look unhealthy? Are there any signs...

    Hi everyone... I've been lurking around for a while and doing lots of research but I'm stumped. My boy Alpha has been with me since October of 2011. He's currently in a 2.5 gallon tank (couldn't bring a bigger tank since I packed only whatever fit in my car when I moved. More about that later...

    My new betta, P.K., has been going about his day normally, swimming, sleeping, chillin', etc., and for the past hour, he's been opening his mouth spontaneously for no apparent reason. What's wrong? I'm thinking my room might be too hot. I'm sweating right now. He stopped about a minute ago, but...

    My oldest betta, Shibuya, is a 1 1/2 year old. He's been relatively healthy with little to no health problems since I got him. However in the last few months I've been watching his fins with a careful eye due to mild deteriation along the edges. I dunno if it's tail bitting or mild fin rot, but...

    Ok so I'm not sure if this is exactly an emergency or not because it's only happened the past 3 times I've done water changes but.... well... Ok background first: I change Genie's water every other day (changed it just last night) or sooner if I feel it's necessary. I only use tap water and...
