    Help! Diagnosis Needed

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to inform you all that unfortunately Squish passed away on July 25. I was out of town when my mom called me, devastated. Apparently he had stopped eating a few days prior and became very lethargic and would just sit and the bottom of his tank. She tried her best to...

    SIP Squish

    My crowntail betta, Squish, passed away on July 25. He had been sick for about 2 months and unfortunately lost his battle on Saturday. I had started a forum back at the end of May asking for help/advice, which I was fortunate to receive an abundance of. I was out of town when he passed, so I...

    Well, I’m home and Squish made it through the 2 weeks I was gone. He’s not looking too good, in fact, he looks worse than a couple days ago. I’m planning on doing an 80% water change and giving him a salt bath tomorrow. Hope that helps.

    She started bettafix last night and also added 1 T. of aquarium salt to his 5 gal. tank yesterday. Hopefully we start seeing some improvement soon. I will be home Friday and am hoping to do a salt bath myself then. My mom does not feel comfortable doing one on her own due to the chance of shock.

    Here’s an updated photo of the little guy as of this morning.. The white spot behind his gills appears to be growing/spreading, but his bloating may be going down just the tiniest bit? Any suggestions? I leave to go out of town for 2 weeks early tomorrow morning and want to make sure my mom is...

    I did a 50% water change last week and am planning to do another one tomorrow before I leave town. I’ve also turned the heater up to about 80 from 78. I noticed some discoloration near his gills and fin which is where the bloat is located too (see attached photo) Here’s a video of him up-close...

    Help! Diagnosis Needed

    Hi, this is my little guy Squish. I’ve had him since October 2019 with little to no health problems along the way. He is in a heated &filtered 5-gallon tank with places to hide and silk plants throughout. About 3 days ago I noticed he may have been starting to show signs of swim bladder disease...
