    Hi y’all, I have a small sorority of female bettas and I got home today to find one of them floating in the tank. At first I thought she was already dead, but she’s still breathing and attempts to swim in short bursts if disturbed. There is definitely something going on with her swim bladder...

    Hi! I recently discovered (1-2 days ago) that my betta has callamanus worms. There are 4-5 worms protruding from his anus. He is not eating and his only tankmate is an apple snail whom has been in there a good few months. Anyone know how to treat them? I am very worried.

    My male betta, Montego, has been perfectly fine in his 5.5 gallon tank until I went to add some water today, (it was pretty low and could use a change), and he was just laying at the bottom of the tank and only moving to take breaths.
