My red female Whisper seems to have a case of finrot. The edges of her tail are turning black and looking ragged. She almost looks like a Crowntail. Finrot I can handle but what worries me is she has also suddenly developed a lump right on her chin under her mouth. It looks like a wart or pimple. I have no idea what it is!
When I look at it with a magnifying glass it has a slightly fuzzy appearance but is definitely hard like a wart. It's slightly pink in appearance. Could it be fish lice? It's bigger than ich so I know it isn't that. I started treating with Tank Buddies Parasite clear. I'll use Tri-Sulfa to treat the finrot. She seems okay otherwise, swimming and eating like a pig! She's not scratching so maybe it's a type of fungus or tumor?
Sigh... Why her now? I'm already treating Lava for different problems. They seem to get sick all at once don't they?

Could it be mouth fungus or true fungus according to the disease chart that Isabella found at ?

Sorry to hear Whisper is showing up with symptoms (of what, idk).  Seems you were busy enough trying to treat Lava.  Hope you can find out soon what it is to be able to treat it, though.

I hope Lava and Whisper both recover soon. It is no fun having even one sick fish. I am sending positive thoughts your way.

Well at least Whisper seems to be doing okay. I still don't know what the lump on her chin is, but it looks a bit smaller today. Her tail looks the same so I don't think she has finrot. The black edges are probably just her normal coloring. I'm treating her with Parasite Clear just in case the lump is a bug of some kind. She doesn't seem to be bothered by it so it might just be a benign growth that fish sometimes get. I've heard they come and go on their own. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Glad to hear the lump's going down. Mario had black edges on his fins from the time we got him until he started losing pieces but we thought it was normal coloring since for some Bettas it is. I guess all you can do with that is watch since it's an unknown and we both hate to give un-needed meds. Probably is just normal coloring though.. We hope & pray you have all-healthy Bettas soon.

Almost as soon as we brought Finley home (our office betta) he began to get fin rot. We treated it with constant water changes and doing everything we can to help de-stress the little guy. A few weeks later now he is perfectly fine. We just realize we have to spoil the little guy rotten to keep him happy and healthy! :

It's scarry how fast fin rot can happen!!! GrI'm has some strange and dark looking edges to parts of his fins, but I think that it is just the blue growing back in. Most of his regrowth has been marroon up until now, and at first I thought that the fin rot was back.
Hopefully for whisper it is just the coloration too!

Let us know how the bump goes. That is strange and worrisome, though it is probably nothing.
