  1. Is this a tumor??

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I don't now when this got here, I swear it wasn't there yesterday. Google makes it sound like something horrible but that's always the case. If it's a tumor, how did it grow so fast overnight? Is there anything I can do?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi All, this is my first post as I am relatively new to betta keeping. Yesterday I noticed a raised lump on my fish's side.

    Hello! I am rather new to the betta world and my current betta, Proteus, is the only one I have ever owned.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I'm sorry for the title, but I truly had no idea how to call this issue or how to sum it up. Long story short: 1) Is the betta in the photos below just a very pretty female? Are stress stripes female-only? 2) What about betta fish that have a tumor? Is there anything infectious about...
