    Hello! I recently got my first beta named Emerald Herald! I've been doing lots of research (including on this forum) to make sure I give him optimal conditions. However, he seems to have developed (I believe these were there when I got him, but they look worse now) some weird white...

    Hello everyone! I'm new here, but I've referenced a lot of your posts in taking care of my new betta fish, Azul. I've had several betta fish before, but this one by far is the most spoiled. :) I've been paying much more attention to the little details to make him as happy as possible. Just...

    My beta has been in my new aquarium for 3 days. He's been swimming around and very happy. He eats well and swims actively. I took the aquarium water to pet store today to get it tested, everything was fine. I just saw this white or grey patch on his head today. I'm sure it wasn't there...

    I feed my bettas everyday but I haven't looked at them very closely until yesterday. It was then that I saw my male betta Comet has a huge white patch on his side and his whole side is kind of swollen. He also has a similar white patch on his back above his tail.

    Hi everyone. A week ago I had a loach pass away, but I presumed that was from lack of food. I wasn't feeding them nearly as much as they needed. He had no physical injuries and never swam strangely. Yesterday I had a rasbora finally pass away. We named it gimpy because it always swam funny and...

    My betta has a history of being sick. He's had fin rot, ick, lack of appetite. Lately he isn't eating and lays at the bottom of his tank. I did a water change last night and it seemed to perk him up, he swims around for a bit sometimes. When I was doing the water change I noticed that one of his...
