    What causes these white patches on my betta???

    I've had my betta for months now and have changed nothing in my routine, but lately he has developed white spots on his left face and top of his back (and a few other places that didn't show up well in photos, all small). I've seen posts of somewhat similar conditions being aggressively deadly...

    Betta hurt? What should I do?

    Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! I woke up to feed my betta but he seemed very lethargic and I’m now starting to see some white spots on him along with some scratched skin (see photos). The white spots make me think it might be ick but I’m not sure about the scratches. It might also be...

    Hi everyone, My betta is clamping it’s fins and seems to be acting strangely. He is very lethargic, resting on the gravel for long periods and his fins seem like they have been nipped.

    Betta Fish is sick... don't know what he has

    Hello! I've had my betta for around a year now, he's always a very hungry guy and energetic. A week ago I noticed his fins were starting to get folded but I didn't think much of it (out of ignorance). Then, two days ago he was just at the bottom of the tank, didn't come up to eat, had no...

    Betta Infection, Injury Care: Help Pls

    I recently decided to set up a nano aquarium (2.1 gal). I didn't intend to place any fish within the aquarium (a planted tank & maybe a few dwarf shrimp) as it is far too small for any fish to truly thrive and be happy. However after getting it setup and cycled I was looking for potential plants...

    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...

    Hi everyone, My betta has been very lethargic over the past 2 weeks, usually staying in one corner of the tank and staying at the top. He will move his fins once a while to shift a bit but then go completely still and not respond to my voice. More recently, I have tried to feed him flake food...

    Hi! New here. My betta has been sick for almost 2 months now, and no medication seems to work. Tried medication for ich, dropsy, velvet, added aquarium salt, nothing seems to help. There was fin rot but it seems to have stopped. I had previously thought it was velvet but there’s no more gold...

    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...
