    Just noticed Mack has his testes hanging out...or something hanging out, I don't know.

    It's located posterior from the pelvic/ventral fin or anterior of the anal fin..

    if it's his testes, is this normal? or is Mack getting sick?

    He is still flaring against the other betta (divided tank), looks normal, and acts normal...well today he spent most of his day inside his favorite bell tower. He comes out to breath or face off with the other betta.....

    Please let me know...thanks

    Welcome to FishLore
    I'm sorry your betta is worrying you. Can you post a pic?
    Are you sure it isn't poo? I've seen mine go as well as pics, sometimes it's almost unbelievable the size stool they can pass.
    Sometimes fish can have a prolapse, but I think it's more prevalent with live bearers.
