  1. Betta Fish Care
    Hey y’all! I’ve had my betta, Alistair, for 1.5 years and the past few months he’s been sick and getting sicker. At the first sign of what I thought was tail rot, I started Melafix and Pimafix. That seemed to hold steady until it didn’t. His entire tail is gone and it cloudy white at the nub. I...

    Hello everyone!! I know it's been a while since I posted here. After my last Betta (Rosey) passed from Cancer I took a break from working with them. Recently though on the 11th (after taking some time to seed a sponge filter for a quarantine tank), I got a new gorgeous boy; Angus. He's been the...

    I was feeding Martha some blood worms today when i noticed these black marks near her eyes. Could this be hole in head or just her coloring/ pores. So far she'd been eating like normal and doesn't seem too lethargic but these marks have me concerned. She had a 2.5 gallon tank with a heater and...

    Update: I am wondering if it may be time to consider euthanasia. I do not want to give up on him too soon but I also don't want him to suffer. He's spent the last day or so on the bottom of the tank, swimming a bit every so often but for less than a minute each time. Whatever the white stuff...

    My (first)betta came down with fin rot recently, I gave him a course of Imagitarium Bacterial Infection Remedy and when that did not seem to work and the infection progressed, I switched to Melafix. The Melafix seemed to take care of the infection as the tattered fins are regrowing, however he...

    Hi everyone, I’m new to the forums, but I came seeking help for my male betta fish. For the past 2 weeks or so he hasn’t been acting like normal. He lies around the aquarium floor and doesn’t really move unless to go to the surface for air, and when he does he swims quickly to the top, gets a...

    This is my first ever betta fish Mango, and he's had these... bumps? on him for a few months now as well as a small white patch on or near his gills on one side of his head.

    I got my betta at PetSmart about 3 months ago, he was labeled as a mermaid betta fish. Not knowing, I bought him a small tank about 3 gallons and he was doing well, but after some research on bettas I decided to get him a new 8 gallon tank. I filled the tank with tap water, put in the water...

  14. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About 6 weeks ago we noticed our Betta Fish (Sideshow Bob) looked ill and had a hole in his fin. After researching we learnt this was likely fin rot & took recommended next steps: more thoroughly cleaning his bowl, using a 'Bettafix' solution, etc. While SB does seem to have improved in this...

    Hi all, I'd like to pick your brains a bit because I'm at a loss at the moment. My betta fish has been afflicted with frequent fungal infections (Columnaris?) on different parts of his body ranging from the fins, body and, most recently, head. I have been able to fight it off every time with...

    Hello everyone! I have a white Betta, his name is Finley, and I’ve had him for over a year now. We got him when he was almost a baby. He’s always been a healthy, energetic betta up until 2 weeks ago. He’s also always had those white patches on him since the day we got him. Unfortunately he has...

    My beta fish seems sick, and I’m not sure what to do about it! He hasn’t been super lethargic, but he hangs out next to the heater all the time now. His fins started to have a hole, and I tried to remember if he had that when I got him. Well now, it’s grown worse, with what looks like mold...
