    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!

    Wow thank you!! Very stressful!!! I’ll check out the hair tomorrow morning and maybe have to have that as my solution as well! Thanks again!
