    Posting for a friend who's fish is sick. When he told me about it I told him that i was part of this forum and there was a bunch of knowledgeable people that would probably be able to help. Can anyone tell what it is from these two pictures? If so could you please provide any information on helping him?

    Thanks in advance. BETA 1.jpgBETA 2.jpg

    What size tank is this? It looks incredibly small and dirty.
    My guess is that the water parameters are really bad and has caused illness. I'm not good with suggesting meds, but if it were my fish I'd get it into clean water. Perhaps little by little to not shock it with parameters changing too suddenly. After that I'd buy it a larger tank assuming the tank is too small.

    Do you know the parameters?
    Is there a filter? Heater?
