    Chronic fin rot - nothing's working

    My betta, Watson, is a rescue fish. He's got a bent spine but it hasn't effected him much at all. I moved and the stress caused him to eat a good portion of his tail. It's been growing back but he's had fin rot the entire time (almost 4 months now) and nothing I've tried has gotten rid of it, on...

    First-time owner: Fin rot?

    Hello, I'm a first-time fish owner so forgive me if I'm ignorant on the subject. I have a half moon betta that I've had for about 7 months now that seems to have chronic fin rot. He lives in a fluval chi 5 gallon by himself, with a constant temperature of about 78 degrees (I use a tetra 2-10...

    Is this fin rot?

    Hi everyone...I need help diagnosing Willard's condition. 2 days ago I noticed his fins deteriorating so I began doing research. Everything seems to point to fin rot. I added a little aquarium salt and that at least got Willard to stop flashing and scratching. Today, I quarantined him while...

    My very old guppy is pretty sick...

    Over the past month, my old guppy Max has been constantly sick. Last week he had parasites, which I took care of and he recovered from. Today, however, I woke up to half of his tail missing. After looking closer, I found out that the tip is black and between the black and the orange (normal...

    Fin rot won't stop

    About a week and a half ago I noticed my Betta had some fin rot starting, and after some reading I started doing daily 90% water changes and adding salt, but nothing seems to work really and it's getting pretty bad - he's lost about a quarter of his fin's length and honestly I'm pretty freaked...

    Betta's fins shredding?

    I'm just wondering if anyone might know what's going on with my bettas fins, at the bottom they look like they are shredding. There is no discolouration where they are shredding, they've never looked like that before. I've had him for 7 months. Thanks

    What is this disease?

    One of my mollies has what looks like a bite out of one fin, but it seems like it's gotten bigger over the past week, so I was wondering if it is "fin rot" or maybe some other kind of infection. Also, I noticed a white spot near his tail. I don't think that the spot is ich, because it's not...

    Does my betta have fin rot?

    My betta recently has been depressed and pale compared to the usual, so I have added a new plant (as opposed to a plastic leaf) and heater which he seems to enjoy. While he is looking better (and his water is also looking better), I am wondering if anyone knows if this is fin rot, or if it is...

    New 125 gallon tank, lost 5 fish in 3 weeks

    So I recently bought a used 125 gallon tank. Cleaned it up real nice with zero chemicals. Transferred majority of water from my 55 gallon tank (cycled) and still using the same cycled filter on my 55 so I know I have plenty of beneficial bacteria. I did add a lot more decorations, but dunked...

    Fin Rot

    I have three new Angel fish (approx 5cm height) which after two weeks in the tank appear to be showing signs of fin rot. I have looked at the usual suspects - water quality, overfeeding, temperature, overcrowding and conclude it is probably stress-related, following their introduction into the...

    Does My Betta Have Fin Rot?

    Hello! I am fairly new to this hobby (about 3-4 months in), and I've begun my hobby by purchasing a 3 gallon half-moon tank with a whisper filter and a heater to keep the water at 78 degrees. I figured this would be the best environment for my Crowntail Betta after I did some research saying...
