If he ever lost color or seemed lethargic, I sprinkled ginger in there, and the next day he'd be bubbly and vibrant as ever. I wanted to put him in a community tank...

    I got Foster by way of my little sister's friend a little over a year and a half ago She was bored with him and trying to starve him to death, and no one else would take him. I've never been a fish person- too stressful; but I was under the impression that bettas are super simple, so I took him...

    I have a betta named Monkey, short for Mungkon (the Thai word for Dragon because he came from Thailand even though he's not a Dragon betta), and he has a SEVERE case of fin rot. He's a pet store bought fish, and he had minimal fin rot when I got him even though I didn't know it (I was a newbie...

    Thank you for your help and insight. My betta fish has lost his appetite and overall character. I noticed the beginnings of some fin rot on his dorsal fin and began a treatment with T.C. Tetracycline. The fin rot cleared up well and quickly. The treatment regimen involved removing the...

    Hello! I got a new betta a few weeks ago and his fins were ovbiously damaged. I thought this was because he was in a cup. So I put him in a one gallon tank and changed the water weekly..

    Sick Betta - No Improvement - Suspected Swim Bladder Disorder, Popeye & Gill Disease I have a female betta, Karmady. Last Sunday we noticed she wasn't acting like herself and her appetite had subsided. We immediately did a 100% change of her water. Her tank is 2.5 gallons, Fluval Spec with...

    I am pretty certain that a new fish I brought home has a severe case of fin rot. Fins appear to be glued together and bloody. He swims in bursts and seems to have a hole in his cheek as well, on the left side. (But he is a opaque white betta and many of them I have looked at on aquabid have...

    Bo was on the mend from Fin Rot. I had treated with tetracycline and he got worse so I 'detoxed' him with twice-treated water that contained epsom salt and daily water changes. After two weeks of fighting the fin rot, he was fie and frisky. I changed his water less frequently and put a filter...

    This started when I tried to move Pluto into a new 5 gal. Fluval Chi tank, which I had treated with the same everything that I was treating his one gallon tank with. We had got him a water frog from the pet store that had been in the tank for the night already before I put Pluto in with him...
