    Can A Betta Die From Overeating Once?

    It’s a long story, but a betta of mine pigged out on snello (carrot, corn, and pumpkin), and developed dropsy and was pineconing 36 hours later, despite the bloating going down and that he did poop. He ultimately died 6 days after the pineconing started. Now, a lot of factors were in play, so...

    Urgent! Mystery Snail Has Exposed Flesh From Cracked Shell

    I only got him in December. He was my second betta and my favorite. I’m heartbroken. It’s hard to say for sure. I figured since he had Nemo fins that he probably was young and not used for breeding before being sold to Petco, but I have no idea. He was beautiful besides that one flaw. And I...

    Urgent! Mystery Snail Has Exposed Flesh From Cracked Shell

    Yeah I was fighting a bad fin rot case with him..have an 11 page long thread about it on here. Anyways he was finally healing and looked good so I put him back in his tank and he had dropsy within 72 hours. It was so bizarre...he did gorge on some snello, so I guess there’s a chance that did...

    Blackworm Care?

    I keep mine in the fridge in about an inch of water. When I feed them to the fish, I fill the Tupperware a bit more and swirl around the water, dump some out, and repeat until the water looks clean and take out any dead ones. Then I go around dropping some in each tank with plastic feeding...

    Urgent! Mystery Snail Has Exposed Flesh From Cracked Shell

    He’s still doing fine. I bought a used 5 gallon and moved him in as a snail only tank. Ended up the MTS survived being in there for weeks without water, and at least 10 rinsings in my tap water. Kind of crazy. So he has some tiny buddies. Then another tank got ich so I had to move a nerite in...

    Treating Fin Rot

    Unfortunately I hate to bring an update with terrible news, but Drax passed on this morning. He ultimately developed dropsy and some sort of fin rot came back with a vengeance. It’s all very odd. Due to grieving and feeling absolutely horrible as it is, I don’t want to delve into a huge...

    Dwarf Water Lettuce

    Yep, told my aquatic plant friend I thought water lettuce looked neat, and then she told me it was illegal. Boo. Hopefully someone not in Texas will be interested!

    Gill Flukes?

    He’s still having the issue where only one side flares. Haven’t figured it out so I just sort of stopped worrying about it. But if I can fix it I’d like to if anyone has a suggestion?

    Inflamed Gill? Betta Flares One Side More Than The Other

    So the swelling never went down. He’s starting to hangout at the bottom of the tank a lot. I’m wondering if it’s scar tissue? I don’t see any flukes hanging out or anything. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Urgent! Mystery Snail Has Exposed Flesh From Cracked Shell

    Oh okay. It had some slime on it visually when I changed the water a couple days ago but it may have been stuck snail poo. I’ll do that soon.

    Urgent! Mystery Snail Has Exposed Flesh From Cracked Shell

    I don’t and I’m guessing he’s resting now. I can take one later though.

    He’s still hanging in there alone in the 1 gallon. Been trying to decide what to do with him.

    Here are some more photos...bump. Maybe this should be in diseases? I wasn’t sure what it was so I didn’t know if it should go there or here. Just now This morning

    Black Patch On Betta

    Anyone have any idea what this black patch/area/splotch might be at the base of his dorsal? I adopted this guy today from someone who has had a lot to deal with the last few months and so his care was put on the back burner. I’ve been there and I get it. Anyway his previous owner didn’t think...

    Urgent! Mystery Snail Has Exposed Flesh From Cracked Shell

    Oh gotcha. Hmm...didn’t think about that being an issue with waiting. He hasn’t lived with a fish for more than the initial 48 hours before I learned how aggressive my bettas are. Doh. I read another snail could eat the tissue too... :O I don’t know what to do... I could setup a 10 and...

    Uv Sterilizer For Bacteria And Viruses

    Thankfully I don’t have an algae problem. I did. Thanks! Someone sent me to that page earlier today from a Facebook post. Does anyone know how long it might survive? What about my snails? Will they transmit it since they’ll be wet? I have one or two other bettas who touched the same breeder...

    Same. Just skin colored. I asked the breeder I got him from and he said the spiral won’t grow back.
