    Betta on & off for months

    I’ve had my Betta since February and soon after he developed brown patches on his back. I figured it was from stress and he was fine after a water change but still discolored. It’s April now and he’s gotten progressively worse. He currently has fin/tail rot and patches on his sides have shown up...

    Help! I'm concerned and don't know what to do!!!

    Hi! So in January I purchased a new betta fish and set him up in a 2.5 gallon tank with heater and filter. I also had the intentions of buying an upgrade. He had been only one day in the store since they had gotten in a new shipment, or so I was told. He was vibrantly colorful, but very shy...

    Should I Change My Bettas Tank?

    Hello, I've had my fish for about 2 years now and he's not the same fish that he used to be. He's a lot bigger now and he's been sitting at the bottom of the tank all the time now.

    Hello, I got my first betta (Mr Fiji) yesterday, I'm new to owning fish and I'm a bit worried because he's spending most of his time at the top of his tank.

    Could my Betta scales be starting to pine cone? (Dropsy?)

    I had bought a Male Adult Betta 3 months ago in August. He is a red crowntail, and has been generally healthy since I have had him, until a few weeks ago. I had some problems with constipation, but I had held up a mirror to him, and he had gone to the bathroom and the mild swelling went down. I...
