    Bloated Betta

    My boy has not been himself now for about a week. He lost interest in his food so I'd let him fast for about a day. I would try feeding him again and he'd only eat one or two pellets, then I would fast him again. I noticed he was looking really bloated Saturday night so I did a 75% water change...

    My boy Pisces was having trouble eating this past 10 days because he wasn’t feeling well. Now he’s back to his old self but now after feeding him live frozen bloodworms his belly is bloated but I do see tiny feces coming out.

    Shredded, Bloated Betta

    Help with Bloated Betta

    So one of my betta babies, Lancelot, is fat. Like really fat. He looks preggo fat. And I'm super worried. I've been roaming around searching for what it might be (I think it's probably constipation? Since his scales don't look like they're sticking out like it says it would be for dropsy) and...

    Dropsy?

    My betta has had a swollen belly for the past couple of days. He's still swimming around, wanting to eat, and overall acting pretty normal. I'm worried because after researching I discovered something as horrible as dropsy exists. I've looked at the all the symptoms and looked at Bruce. There...

    Betta ate an algae wafer. Now what?

    So Ruth, my year and a half old betta, decided to eat *an entire tetra algae wafer* intended for the two mystery snails that occupy his tank. I had not given them algae wafers previously, so did not expect Ruth to be such a piggy; he had also just had three frozen blood worms. 24 hours later...

    Betta; Bacterial, Worms, Egg Bound, Dropsy?

    Do you think I can save this girl? Any advice welcome. This is what she would typically look like:   So as you can she she is normally a little round, but she has got larger over the past 24 hours:   What you can see is she is larger on one side and it looks like there is some reddening on...
