  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I've never posted here but did on another and got no feedback and even paid for the expert advice. My Betta "Spastic" is in a very advanced stage of fin/tail rot. I thought he had died yesterday as he was laying at the bottom of the tank. I've tried everything but will say that I've learned...

    Hello everyone! I have a question to ask about mine & my parents betta. I own 2 bettas, and my oldest one - a crowntail - has never had any issues. Last month I decided to get a second betta - a veiltail - and he's been doing well. A few days ago I noticed that his back tail is shorter and...

    Hi. My amazing betta boy Omar's tail got shredded within minutes. It was perfect and now it's awful and kind of upsetting. He is my first betta. The only new ish thing in my tank is a betta log which I just examined and felt a sharp part on the inside of. I made that smooth. There is a corner...

    Hi all, I'm new here. It's been a year or two since I've kept a Betta (I've had two before and my husband has kept a couple as well) and a week ago I bought a new one. The problem: Two days ago I thought perhaps his tail was degenerating, but wasn't sure. Yesterday I was more sure and did a...

    Ok so for about two weeks my beta's tail has been deteriorating rapidly I've been told it was fin rot, I've been told it was tail biting, I've been told it was nothing. So on the safer approach I've been doing daily water changes with a little AQ salt, but his tail is still so much damaged this...

    My veiltail male has major slits up his tail, but there's absolutely nothing in the tank for him to cut his fins on, so I'm very confused. I have only silk plants and rounded ornaments in this tank, no sharp edges at all. Yesterday I replaced the filter's water bottle baffle with a sponge...

    I recently (Sunday evening) moved my half-moon boy, Charlemagne, into a 5gal setup (he has a 3gal which I left in my hometown 5hrs away from my college town). When I added him into the setup, I realized that the upper half of his tail is deteriorating D: It hasn't gotten very far, but I'm still...
  10. Betta Fish Care
    I came home to find that my betta fish's tail (the hind tail) was missing a piece, and the only thing in his tank that could have caused that was the filter. I took the filter out, but now I'm worried his tank might get too dirty and cause him to get diseases. My questions are: 1) should I...
