    Betta Fish Sick

    My betta (half a year old) is staying at the bottom of the tank and not going up to feed. I've seen him try to swim a few times and he can, but only for a few seconds before he quickly returns back to the ground. I think he can't keep his balance? He seems to move a bit sideways when he rests...

    Something wrong with my glo fish?

    Hi everyone! I’ve had this glo fish for a few months now. He appears to have a larger sized stomach out of no where. It looks as though he possibly swallowed a pebble I’m not sure? I will upload the pictures now. But I would love help and I’m slightly panicked.

    New flowerhorn suddenly got sick

    We recently got a small flowerhorn and for some reason, he suddenly got sick. When we had got him, we did not see that he had some type of body fungus until we got home.

    I know something is wrong with my swordtail but I don’t know what is up. One week ago I cleaned their tank as I usually do.
