    This is Fernando. I bought him about a year ago at a Petsmart. He's a half moon betta, and has always been small. With the recent 'end of the school year' stress, I pushed off cleaning his home far too often than not, and resulted in him dulling in color, not eating, and laying at the bottom for...

At closer inspection it looks like there is a air pocket in his abdomen(closer to the tail than head). it looks pretty clear and see-through. he is swimming decently, looks like he wants to eat, but doesnt. He is breathing about 3...

    HI all, we recently bought a plec, and he/she has developed something on one of its fins (see pics - sorry they are poor, its a pain to photograph). It appears to be only on the one fin affecting around the "joint" area with its body (looks a bit red). It also looks white and cottony. It...

    Hi there, My favourite goldfish is suffering from what appears to be finrot so I separated her from my other fish and I'm trying to help her. I'm inexperienced with the whole fish thing so I was hoping someone could direct me. I posted my questions already on Yahoo answers a few times and got a...

    A little while back I posted about my betta,Ice,who seemed to have frayed fins for no apparent reason. I ended up moving his tank away from the other fish tank,letting him flare up at his reflection and all the other stuff you guys reccomended (except treating him for fin rot,as I didn't wanna...

    I know I've thought my betta had fin rot but not I'm positive its not his coloring. I treated him a while ago with Bettafix and had no success with it at all. I've been cleaning his water once a week 100% and putting stress coat and blackwater extract in there. It's a 10 gallon with a filter...

    Can anyone explain what fin rot is or how I can tell it's fin rot? I've been trying to figure out if my little guy has it and so far I think he does but I don't want to treat it until I'm certain. He has black edges on his fins and then it turns clear and then his regular color. I do have salt...
