    Hi everyone, So just this morning as I was feeding George I noticed this bump looking thing right on like the top and edge of his gill flap. You can’t really see in the pictures, but it has a ever so slight yellowish tint, and it sticks out a little bit, kind of bending his gill flap. I don’t...

    So I’ve made a lot of posts about my boy before, but now I am seriously worried. He’s been refusing food more often, his tumor is stable but seems like it’s just eating away at him, all he does is sit around (but he’ll still come up to the front to see me), he’s getting more blind, and he has...

    Hi! This is my beauty Auggie. I have had her for just under a year and she is the queen of my 10 gallon planted mini community tank. Within the past week or so, I noticed this strange bump on her side that is not going away. Auggie is very prone to injury as she purposefully wiggles herself into...

    Howdy! I recently got a betta fish from a relative about 10 days ago (who obviously had not been taking great care of him). When I got him, he had a lump on his side (see first image), and now it has gotten bigger and more white (see next photos). He is incredibly happy right now, eats great...

    Hi hi :) I have a recent thread I posted that has become very long due to all of the incredible help I’ve received (absolutely love this forum lol), so I thought I’d create a new one specifically for this lump to see if I can reach a wider audience to get some opinions!! My white opal male...

    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...

    Hi all, my one of my Bettas has a large lump protruding on his back end of his body visible on both sides, and oval shaped. I recently treated all my tanks for velvet disease and all but this one Betta responded to the copper treatment from NT Labs, he still shows signs of gold dust all over and...

    Hi betta lovers, this is Spot. Spot has two problems. I brought him home in April 2021. 4 months later, He is still active, ready to eat and responds to me. Water changes happen weekly of 30-50%. I have live Java ferns in the aquarium and also a sponge filter. I live in a tropical country so the...
  9. Betta Fish Care
    I'm looking for any suggestions to make my betta's quality of life better with what appear to be two tumors on his side. I thought originally it was just an abscess but after about 5 weeks I've noticed a 2nd one (right at the base of his tail) and the first one (on his side) nearly doubled in...

    I adopted my Betta fish knowing that he has cancer, and he’s been living a happy life for two months now. However last week, he started laying at the bottom of the tank (sometimes on his side) and acting really dormant. His scales are turning from purplish pink to almost translucent red. He will...

    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?

  13. 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. I don't know if this has to do with what the problem is or if it is just how he looks, but where it is raised, the scales are showing white underneath. I am certain that he...

    Hi everyone, We have a young male betta we purchased from PetSmart on Feb 18, 2020. He had a dark blue spot on the top right side of his head near his gills when we got him, but we thought nothing of it other than a 'character mark'. Here's a picture of him when we received him: The spot has...
