  1. HELP!!! Betta has ripped fins!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! My Platinum white halfmoon dumbo betta has pretty badly ripped fins. He is very healthy eats frozen and the best pellets. I also house ghost shrimp and an adult brisslenose pleco with my betta. She often leaves lots of poop everyday(a lot). My water chemistry is practically perfect and...
  2. Weird bubble growth on my betta

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I’m hoping someone might be able to help me with my fish. I’ve had him for about a month - shortly after getting him I noticed one of his long front fins looked a bit ragged. It started developing a bubble type appearance which has now grown to multiple bubbles and has spread to a bubble...
  3. Torn pectoral fin & maybe fin rot

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I picked up a crowntail yesterday - he had been at the store for 35 minutes, before I picked him up and brought him to work. It was about two hours between pick up time & acclimation time though, so he was a tad stressed about it all - coming from Thailand to Central Texas to my job was quite...
  4. Is my bettas fin ripped? Or is it fin rot?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have a male fan tail betta named Mr. Bungle. I have had him for about 3 months. He was fine up until yesterday. I check out his fins every day as I feed him. Just yesterday I noticed his top fin (dorsal?) is ripped really bad all of a sudden. Can fin rot work that fast in one night? I...
  5. Fin Rot? Or just a tear?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I did a big water change yesterday, and between then and about two hours ago, my boy has a huge tear in his fin. I went to dinner, and when I came back, there was an additional smaller tear beside it! I don't know it I just didn't notice it, or if he got another while I was gone. He had some...
  6. Torn fins

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    About a week ago a friend of mine gave me her male betta after her daughter tried to put him with a school of tiger barbs. Obviously he got eaten up pretty bad :( At the moment he is stuck in a 1 gallon bowl until I can get him a tank of his own. I saw this guy before they put him in with the...
  7. Help with Community Tank

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    A little background into my situation, I am fairly new to the hobby especially new to keeping a larger community tank. I currently have a 36 gallon that used to have a school of corys and a school of tiger barbs and everything was going well. Now I no longer have the tiger barbs and have added a...
  8. Torn fins?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello, this is my betta Moses. I've had him for about six months now. I noticed that he had a bit of damage in his caudal fin yesterday. However, when I woke up today he had a huge tear in his tail. I only have live plants, five ghost shrimp, smooth river stones, a filter, and a heater in his...

    Betta Fish Care
    I came back home from the weekend and my betta's back fin was completely torn! I did some googling to figure out what to do, but I have no idea if the tail just tore or if my betta has fin rot? I just did a 50% water change, but I'm not sure what else I should do?? :cry: Please check the...
  10. Torn fins - Should I be worried?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello Betta lovers! Meet Nereu, I bought him from a shop near my house. Actually, he might have bought me... :P But now, as you might have noticed in the picture above, his fins are a bit torn at the region that the dorsal fin meets the caudal fin. He is resting, he is a bit weird I saw...
  11. Torn Ventral Fin

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I adopted a CT female on Saturday night that was previously owned by my boyfriends brother (who didn't really know how to properly care for bettas). She is doing great and gets along well with my peppered corys. I just noticed though that one of her ventral fins seems to be torn slightly. I'm...
  12. Torn fin?

    Betta Fish Care
    It's just day 2, and my poor boy has a tear in his anal fin. I've read some people put a bit of salt in the water, but what kind of salt? (Or will it heal on its own?). The only thing I can think of what tore it are the silk plants because the stems are plastic.
  13. Is this Fin Rot?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I have a dark blue male betta named Lex (not as evil as the name suggests). Adopted him from my sister who recieved him for secret santa (dick move I know, i guess she's a marine biologist so they thought that'd be a funny gift. Anyways he was in a terrible vase but I started hooking him up...
  14. Scrapes and Torn Caudal Fin

    Betta Fish Care
    Lately, my betta has started getting blackish scrapes along his scales. They're just little black lines, not red or swollen or anything. He didn't have them when I first brought him home. Here are a few pictures of the scrapes: This is him when I first moved him into his current tank: He has...
  15. And now a torn fin??

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm pretty sure my fish is a mix between a veil tail and a crown tail. Before I put him in his aquarium his fins were curling... That seems to have healed or is well on its way to healing. BUT.... now his fin is tearing!! Please look at the photo. #1 shows no tears, #2 shows a tear starting...
  16. FIRST TIMER!!! Please help <3

    Betta Fish Care
    A few weeks ago my husband brought home a fish for our kid. I begged him not to do so as I am crazy about animals (big and small) and knew it would consume me! He did so anyway and here I am Betta obsessed (so he says)... I have probably spent way too much time and money trying to give this guy...
  17. Torn Fin or Bitten Fin?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    So I just noticed this last night. And I can't tell if its been ripped or bitten off. Also what should I do to treat it? There are live plants in his tank. I've also taken out the things that might have caused it. Housing What size is your tank? I'm not sure. Maybe a 16 gallon tall. What...
  18. My beta fell into my disposal!

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    While cleaning old water out of his tank, my half-moon beta jumped into the sink and fell down the disposal! I was able to rescue him after being in there for a minute, maybe a bit longer, but he is badly damaged. A large piece of his long beautiful tail came off! I put him back into his clean...
