    Fin Rot

    My poor betta. He started getting what I thought was fin rot about 2 weeks ago. So I got some Melafix and used it for 7 days and it got so much worse! The edges are just torn-looking, no white edges or inflammation. My next thought was maybe the clay house that’s in the pool is tearing his...

    Hi! I’m Jennifer.

    Hi everyone! I’m Jennifer, new aquarium enthusiast thrust into this world thanks to my 5-year old who wanted a fish. I’ve made EVERY rookie mistake so far, but our betta, Fleur, managed to survive. It’s now my tank and the kids are occasionally involved.

    Algae or mold?
