  2. Help!! White fuzz and possible browning head?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I work at a pet store and we had a bad shipment of bettas in. We've done what we can but most have died. But there's one little guy who still (even though he was bad) seemed to have life in him yesterday. I put some stress coat in and stuck my hand in and let him run himself on it and some of...
  3. Is this white stuff algae or a fungus?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hello, Does anyone recognize this white stuff? Will it hurt my new fish? And what can I do to clear it up? For a few weeks I had java moss and stones in a 2.5 gallon bowl that came from a healthy tank. Then a few days ago I added a female betta, anubias nana and crypto wendtii. I saw a little...
  4. White Fuzz on Bridge

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey guys. I just noticed that a bridge in my Bettas tank has developed a white, almost invisible white fuzz. I tried vacuuming it up, but it wouldn't budge. My betta isn't acting any different then he normally does. Any idea to what this is and if it is harmful?
  5. Please help! Fins turning white with fuzz, crazy swimming

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got a betta one week ago. A few days ago, I noticed one of his fins (the little ones he swims with, not the tail or flowing ones) had white fuzz on it. Over the course of the day, his fin started looking smaller and the fuzz got bigger until he had a trail of fuzz and was not using that fin...
  6. white fuzz?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got my rescue male VT betta Gator from Wal-mart a little over a week ago, he was lethargic, very skinny, had labored breathing (possible gill inflammation I was told?), fins are curled and had fin rot. I've been treating him in his quarantine tank with aquarium salt, 1 tsp/gallon until a...

  9. Weird White fuzz on my anubias?

    Planted Betta Tanks
    I have a 10 gallon divided betta tank and in one half there is an anubias with 2 flowers growing. I just got back from a 2 week trip and let someone else care for my fish but this morning I noticed it. It is a white fuzzy coat of something covering the center of the flower. If you know what...
  10. New Betta, think its Columnaris

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Maybe it was a bad idea to buy him at Petsmart for 2.11 (including tax) when the rest of them looked so rough. There was one that was bloated and dead already and another that looked awful. But the one I settled on was bright red, really pretty, no visible legions or imperfections, flared when I...
  11. Fuzz Algae? Help!

    Betta Fish Care
    FyrIce has some fuzz algae in his tank. It is not kept in direct sunlight, other then the wee bit of morning when the sun is coming in through the closed blinds. By the time we get up, it usually is not shining directly through the window. I cycle my 2.5, feed normally, 3 pellets a day (since...
