  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi all. I have had this beta for over a year and slowly he’s been growing this lesion thing on the side of his body. Originally, it was pretty small and I began treating him with a number of different things since I wasn’t really sure what was wrong with him. Unfortunately, none of that worked...

    So I am fairly new to this, but I got my female Glofish betta about a month ago. I think she’s around 6-8 months old as she was fairly small when I got her and she has been rapidly growing. She is still active, eating, playful, friendly, and swimming fine, but she has started developing a large...

    Hi everyone- I’ve been researching like crazy and came across this forum. I haven’t been able to find anything similar to what’s going on with my betta so I decided I’d post and hope for any luck. About 3 weeks ago my female betta, koi koi, started growing a lump on her tail. I started doing...

    I need help identifying a large bump on the side of my female betta fish, behind her gills. I thought hopefully it might be bloating and fasted her for a few days but it is still there unchanged. It has grown bigger over time. What does anyone think this could be? Also, is there anything I...

    Hello everyone, UPDATE: I noticed today that there seems to be a lump forming on the other side. That side is protruding too. I noticed my Betta had a small lump on his side around 2 weeks ago. He had fish rot when I got him, and after treatments, he was doing very well. I could not take him...

I am stumped as to what it could be and very worried, he has been my best friend for two years. I have completed 7 days of fasting with him, 3 days fast, one day...

    Hi to all, My Blue Half Moon Betta seems to have grown a sizable tumor like bump that I am not sure what to do about, or if there is any thing that can be done. Other than the unusual bump, no loss of appetite or erratic behavior observed. Any thoughts?

    Hi everyone, 3 months ago, I came home from being away for a few days (with an automatic feeder), and I noticed he had a pretty noticable buldge on the left side of stomach. At first I thought it was probably bloat due to the automatic feeder, so I got peas and fed them to him a multiple...

    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...

    Hi. My betta Ziggy has a lump across the side of his body. When I point the flashlight through, it is almost completely transparent. Almost like a blister. He also has another lump on the other side. I first noticed this a few months ago. Since then they have grown bigger. His fins have...

    Hello, this is my betta fish Finn. (Please don't think that I neglect/don't care for my betta from the pictures) I've spent at least $400 in total over the past year for him and I'll do anything to help him get better. He's had two white bumps that appeared on him out of the blue a bit ago. I...

    Hey Everyone, This is the latest in my saga with my betta Redd. I am sorry about the various threads on the same fish, but it is just one thing after another with him. I have had him since February (or March can't recall) and several months he was okay doing well, but since a couple of...

    Hi my name is Jessica and I have my Male Delta Tail Betta JJ. I purchased him from Petco roughly a year ago. I upgraded him into a 5 gallon tank with heater and full filter system about 5 months into having him. I keep a clean tank and feed him blood worms along with color formula pellets...
