    Corydora with injured pectoral fin and white area on his body?

    My false julii corydora is injured on his left pectoral fin. About a week and a half ago he got both his pectoral fins/bones lodged in the aquarium background and couldn't move. He was so stuck that he couldn't even shake the shrimp off of himself and I had to pry his left fin free. His fin...

    Sick Betta, White Spots- Fin rot???

    Hello! I have a double tail betta fish who has developed light spots on his fins, and his fins look very torn up. When I first noticed the fins starting to look jagged, I took all the silk plants out, and replaced them with live ones. There’s nothing sharp in the tank. The spots have been on his...

    Guppy's tail dissapearing???

    Hey hey! So, I have a tank of about 16 guppies and 4 tetras. Most of the guppies are young except for the one in question. She's an adult albino red guppy, and pretty much the most social of all of them. Yesterday morning, she got herself wrapped up inside a moss ball (don't ask me how, I...

    Please help, my betta looks terrible!

    Hi all, and thanks in advance for reading! My betta fish has recently started looking real scruffy, and occasionally looks red in the fins and head. I've attached pictures of him about 2 months ago, and a picture of him today so you can see the difference. He's still happily eating and doesn't...

    Hi all! I'm new to forums but I joined this one because I'm concerned about my betta. I got her at the beginning of March as a surprise gift. I've done extensive research and tried to give her the best care I can. I honestly can't believe how attached I've become She's a feisty, flitty little...

    White Fungus/Rot on Corydora

    I noticed some white starting to appear on some of my bronze corydoras fins, and I cant quite figure out what it is. One cory has it worse than the rest, and it looks as if the fin is actually beginning to rot away. I've had these cory for over six months now, and I've owned cory for about four...

    Betta fin rot... again!!

    Hey guys!! My bettas fin rot was finally going away and now it's back and worse than ever. I have been doing 90% water changes daily, adding the medical stuff called Bettafix along with a bit of aquarium salt to kill any bacteria. It was good for awhile but has gotten significantly worse and I...

    Fry with damaged fin

    I had to move my 3 fry to a fry breeding net to protect them from the other fish. Two had their tail fin nipped. They had been hiding in the floating hornwort but it has been breaking down lately. Is it a slow process for fins to grow back for fry? These I believe are glow light tetra fry, two...

    Platy seems very ill- please help

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this website so please be patient with me! About 4 months ago my father bought 4 platy fish for our tank (along with a Plec, a few neon tetra and a betta) (I know it's not recommended to keep a betta with platys because or their tails but they get on fine). It turns out...

    I think my betta has fin rot

    I think my betta may have fin rot. I hope I have attached the picture correctly so you all can see. He is a two tailed half moon so one of those breaks in his tail is normal, lol. I did about a 30% water change on Friday. I first noticed a rip in his tail about two weeks ago and I thought maybe...

    Betta - Fin Rot?

    Hi everyone, My roommates and I got a betta fish about 2 weeks ago and we're worried he might have fin rot but we're not sure if it's that, him tearing his fins, or just normal. He's had the white tips on his fins since we got him and he has a bigger split in his top fin that's improving now...

    Shredded, Bloated Betta

    Hi. I'm a new betta owner, and I bought my fish about two months ago. I took care of him for the first month, and he was shy but healthy. After a month of vacation and leaving the fish in my fathers' care, I am very stressed with his new appearance. Although he is happy and friendly, is eating...

    Angelfish front fin torn

    My angelfish’s fin was torn by one of the other angelfish in the tank (there’s 3 total). It’s her front fin that makes her swim (the internet says it’s her “pectoral fin) and now that it’s torn it doesn’t work as well. Because it’s not working as well she tends to lean to that side a little...

    Fin Rot or am I crazy

    My Betta fish Clifford has some strange edges and color on his fins and tail and I'm not quite sure what to think of it. Most of the pictures I've seen online have had fins that have completely transparent edges or black edges and it doesn't quite match what I see. One thing to note is that...
