    hey guys

    So I am stressed out!!! My Betta has a hair in his mouth!! I read a forum and one lady said her fish died because the hair gave her fish a mouth fungus within a couple days that got me feeling even worse!!

    I have tried getting close to him but I can’t... also tried giving him a pellet to see if he would spit the hair out when he ate the pellet... didn’t work... tried sucking it out with a turkey Bastet close to him and also tried pushing some water his way to get it out!

    I do NOT want him to die!!

    Pls help! Thanks in advance!

    I had this problem with my betta too. I ended up holding him in my hand and using a pair of tweezers to pull out the hair. The whole procedure was stressful for both me and him but he is fine now!
