    I think my betta fish has fin rot

    Well this is what her fins looked like when I first got her 6 months ago. She had torn her fin a month after I got her which was my fault. I always kept the water clean but her fins have never looked the same since then. I check the ammonia and nitrates and nitrates every couple weeks...

    I think my betta fish has fin rot

    I just took these pictures this morning. Her fins have been looking torn for a while. I’ve done daily water changes for a week and that hasn’t changed anything about her fins. She’s acting fine I just feel like her fins are starting to look worse.

    I think my betta fish has fin rot

    Her fins really just look bad to me. They’ve darkened and it looks like they’re becoming smaller. I think she actually just had dropsy which is now better because of the epsom salt baths. I know dropsy is just a symptom of a disease. Let me know what you think.

    Does my betta have dropsy??

    with the epsom salt do I just put her in a separate container like a bucket or something with the salt in it? And then put her back in the tank? Or put it in the tank and do a water change?

    Does my betta have dropsy??

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. I got her at petco and they put them in those cups and I know they don’t take good care of them. I’ve always done water changes every week and checked the water for ammonia and all that. It’s so common so I definitely agree I feel like they’re genetically...

    Does my betta have dropsy??

    Thank you for replying. It’s so sad I really loved her and I’ve only had her for 6 months. I just feel like it’s my fault but I know the causes are mostly unknown.

    Does my betta have dropsy??

    So I’ve posted a thread about this a week ago. I thought it was bloating or constipation and I fasted her for three days and started feeding her less and it just seems like it’s gotten worse. She used to swim around so much and now she just kinda floats near the top. I’m scared it’s dropsy but...

    Does my betta fish look bloated?

    No she’s definitely not egg bound lol but she really looks like she is. Yeah I’ll just fast for another day or two. She’s swimming around fine and everything she just really looks bloated but hopefully by fasting she gets better.

    Does my betta fish look bloated?

    I feel like I’ve seen her skinnier than this. I think she might be constipated but I’m not sure. I tested my water everything’s fine. I fasted her for a day but I see like no change. I feed her four pellets a day during the week and frozen blood worms on the weekend. Please help thanks.

    What tank heater should I buy?

    I’ve had my fish tank since August and I’ve been able to avoid getting a heater since I live in Florida. Now it’s going to start getting in the 50s and I really don’t want my water to get cold. I have a 5.5 gallon tank for my betta fish. What heater should I buy? I’m scared because a lot of...
