    Switching from spring water to tap water

    I’ve been using spring water for my betta fish for as long as I have had him (since September) I am finding it hard to keep up with buying enough spring water to make frequent water changes as i do not have a car.

    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.

    Bettas fin ripped what should I do? Please help!

    Hello I think my betta might’ve accidentally ripped her fin. She likes to push herself between the plants in my tank and I wonder if she might’ve injured her fin doing that. Should I just leave it alone? Thanks :)

    Help!! Glofish with ich and now fin rot?

    Hi, I’m new to the fish keeping hobby and this past week has been pretty stressful :( About 6 days ago I noticed that my glofish tetra had a couple of white spots growing on her fin. I did research and came to the conclusion that this was in fact ich. I went to the pet store and purchased super...
