    Hello, Back again in a first aid situation. My 19 month old betta has been hiding for about a week and when she comes in contact with something or when you gesture towards her, she bounces violently. She’s not flashing though. What could it be? If you would, please check out the pics. Is that...

    I have this betta fish since last winter, and today he seems really stressed, he swims if i move the tank but after that he just lays on the side, floating. His color is normal as usual, he is still eating and he seems interesting in eating. I think the problem is ammonia, because his tank is 1...

    I have tried treating it using Melafix (it's a bad brand, I know but it was the only one at the store) and his fins have been rotting and falling off. Also there is this web-like, fungus-like thing on some of his fins. His whole upper body (including face) is white. IF you would like amother...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here, and I'm not sure how forums work, but my betta, Grandma, has suddenly become very sick, and I'm worried. She stopped eating about a week ago, so I tried to switch up her diet. She still won't eat. Then, this morning, I found her laying sideways on the bottom of the...

    A new female betta fish I rescued and bought today from my loacal Petsmart has clamped fins and isn't very active. She floats a bit at the top and sometimes swims down to the bottom of her container. I've kept her in the container to keep her from contaminating the two other females I have...

    Hey Guys Bettaman123 here, My little blue fellow has been acting strange the past few days. I've noticed a weird white spot on his forhead and started to worry.

    Hi, so this is my first post, so I'm sorry if it's a bit out of format haha. :oops: I got a new male betta fish about two months ago. When I got him initially, he was extremely vibrant in color - bright red fins, bluish green body. Crazy, deep, colors. Super striking. For about a month and a...

    Hi, My betta is very sick and I don't know how to treat him. He was fine a few days ago, but is now lying at the bottom the bowl on his side. He doesn't move, doesn't eat, and has labored breathing. Nothing has changed in his environment that I can tell to cause this-he's in a clean bowl, I...

    Hi, I have a Betta fish named Mushu, a red one, who I rescued from my friends old roommates', ex girlfriends' old roommate. I believe he must be at least 2 years old. I have had him since May, when I "adopted" him and moved him from an awful dirty half gallon or 1 gallon (max) tank. I put him...

    I've recently got a betta fish and he's been perfectly active for the past 3 weeks. I did a water change yesterday as per usual and the only thing changed was his decoration - a green mushroom like rubber coral to a yellow one. He has been fine living in a 1 tank without a heater, I don't have a...

    Hi, I think my Beta Franklin may be unwell. His tail has a lumpy bit right in the middle, I am not sure if this is normal/will hurt him. I have had him over a year. He has a little heater and is in 4L or over a gallon of water, I use water conditioner and have a store bought fin medication...

I've had Pi for about 3 years from...
