    Hi everybody! Newbie in the here :) I've been Google-ing around looking for solutions but I'm unsure. Today when I fed my fish I realize his mouth looks a little...weird? Like if it's swollen or something. He is happy and dances around when I'm nearby, so it doesn't look like he's suffering...

I showed her to my mom (who helps me out with them, as far as supplies and maintaince goes) and she...

    Hi, I noticed yesterday that my fish's mouth seems rather swollen, and was hoping to get some advice from all you knowledgeable folks. Has this ever happened to anyone? What did you do? I started treating him with epsom salt yesterday, since I read that that is supposed to help with swelling...

    Hi, My betta had a small belly for 3-4 weeks. Since he likes eating i thought it's because of overfeeding. But 1 week ago he had more swelling so i reduced the food( i was giving 3 granules and 1 dried worm a day, for the last week giving just 1 granule). 2 days ago after water change he swollen...

    Hi everyone, Last week I received a Betta as a gift. My friends who gifted me with my Betta also supplied bowl pebbles, the bowl, and the decorations. Now, a week later I'm only realizing that the pebbles, ( i believe) are not meant for fish bowls so they have acquired bacteria even though I...

    My male crowntail betta has had a large belly for quite a while now. It doesn't seem to be affecting him too much, he still swims easily, eats regularly (I'm not overfeeding him either) and his scales aren't raised, so I don't think it's Dropsy, but I just thought I'd share a photo and ask the...

    This is the swollen double tail I had posted about before, where it seemed he had gotten ammonia burn along with fin rot. I had updated the thread because I had remembered he had gotten a seashell (direct from the ocean) put in the tank without it being cleaned properly first, but I didn't get a...
