  1. Betta fins curling and white spot

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello! I am a first time Betta owner and I've notice that Indi Rhae's fins are starting to curl. I was worried it might be fin rot, but it doesn't look like any of the pictures I've seen of what fin rot looks like. It's not black per se, but more of a clear/white color. He also has a white...

    He has been sick for about 2 weeks now, started him on doses of furan-2 for fin rot and lethargy etc, only got 3 out of 4 doses done as I went away before the cycle could be completed.

    My betta fish has this white dot on his head as well as some tiny ones on his body that can only be seen up close. I first noticed it when I was putting him into my tank when I got home from the pet shop. At first I thought the dot on the head was just a scale that had lost its colour but now...
  6. Is my new Female Betta sick?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got a new female betta, Journey, just 2 days ago. It wasn't until I brought her home that I noticed a white spot on her back. It's too big to be ich, and it's not fluffy or raised. I'm paranoid though, could it be a fungal infection or is it just part of her? Journey is my first female betta...

  8. What's Wrong?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    My Betta has a white spot on his face, it just appeared one day. It hasn't really changed in size or shape and I see no other spots like it on his body. Also, his fins used to be real smooth on the tip but I'm noticing that it's looking jagged now. It seems to be getting worse. His behavior...

    Something is up with my divided ten gallon. Tonight my lovely rosetail dumbo died suddenly of unknown causes.

    Just a few minutes ago, I noticed that my betta had a white spot (maybe two, but they're really close) on his right gill.
