  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi everyone. I’m new to the forum and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what’s wrong with my betta. I’m wondering if maybe he has fin rot or if there is something else wrong with him. He was in with some neon tetras and they were nipping him so I moved him to a different tank...

    Hi, I wanted to ask how to get rid of fungal infection. My betta had some fin rot so I did a salt treatment, but during the salt treatment a fungal infection appeared on his body which is odd because most people say salt helps cure fungal diseases in fish. His tank is at 75 degrees F right now...

    Hi, I would really appreciate help identifying what my betta fish has and how to go about treating it. I was unsure if he was tail-biting, or had cut his fins, but at this point I'm fairly positive he has fin rot. I've had him for a number of months and he's always been healthy and active with...

    I have a previous post regarding attempts to cure Clove's pop-eye. But I wanted to discuss pop-eye treatments directly without my photo updates to document the size of his eye. I have tried: (1) Epsom Salt baths, 10 day each (1) Kanaplex treatment, as directed (1) Rooibos Tea, IAL and ES bath...

    Yesterday I noticed my betta's stomach looked a bit round and bloated, so I started looking up what it could be. I found that he could just be bloated but became worried when one site said that it could be dropsy because it is more noticeable when you look from the top of the water down at the...

    I bought a betta about 1 week ago. He obviously had SB issues, and I didn't think they would help him. I brought him home, put him in a heated tank, and did the deed... the deed being fasting for 3 days and feeding part of a pea on day four. He did fine with that. When he still didn't show much...

    A few months ago, my male betta had a small bump near his eye. I tried to figure out what it was, but had no luck. In a few weeks, his bump disappeared and turned into popeye. I treated him with changing his water daily and added Epsom salt into his tank. It went away within a few days. Nothing...

    So my betta has fin rot, and I just received the aquarium salt from API today. I've been reading the procedures of treating a betta with fin rot, and it says while the fish is on quarantine, we have to do 100% water changes everyday to prevent bacteria growth. Now, I'm really nervous about doing...

    I have tried treating it using Melafix (it's a bad brand, I know but it was the only one at the store) and his fins have been rotting and falling off. Also there is this web-like, fungus-like thing on some of his fins. His whole upper body (including face) is white. IF you would like amother...

    We rescued Ziggy from Walmart a couple of days ago. He was one of the healthier fish, and he seemed to be adjusting really well. He's been really active since we got him, but today he isn't, and I'm actually sort of concerned. Housing: How many gallons is your tank? 5 gallons Does it have a...

    Hello! I have a beta fish that is relatively new and has been perfectly healthy for a long time. Just recently in about the past two weeks he has developed this type of clear substance growing on his fins and parts of his body. At first it appeared very small and started to go away as I treated...
