The areas where Arp was turning black turned white overnight??? The base of her fins look almost transparent now, and she has large bleached places on her side. It doesn’t look injured in anyway, just a different color. But I guess she could’ve scraped herself on something? Idk? I’ve never seen anything like it

letsgetsalty:

I’ve had her for just over three months but she’s changed so much! She doesn’t look like a tiny baby anymore

I went out of town for a week and she decided to start turning black

I just got back from a week long mission trip, and my male betta got sick while I was gone 🙁

I think he might be getting Popeye, but he’s also not swimming much and he’s laying on his side a lot. Does anyone have advice for Epsom salt dips???

His eyes are definitely swelling. I just did a 13 minute dip, he just laid on his side the whole time, but he’s sitting at the top of his tank now instead of the bottom. I don’t know what the cause of it is so I’m not sure how to treat; if I should use antibiotics now or see if it clears up with baths. I don’t know if I can use them together?

Don’t use them together. They’re both string treatments, and both would honestly be too much stress

I’m sure you already tested the water. What were the parameters? That sounds like it could be ammonia poisoning. Well, except the popeye, but ammonia will contribute to that.

Gotcha, thanks

Everythings at zero. I was gone for a week and my mom was taking care of him so it may have spiked in that time but I doubt it? He’s the only fish in there and she only fed him a couple times, and it’s a twenty gal. She said the temp dropped a degree or two but she plugged his heater in to fix it, so it’s back at 75 where it usually is.

Meet my new boy Dorian. He’s a plakat betta and he’s absolutely huge. He decided to pose for me near the rainbow sticker for pride month.

Isn’t she beautiful?

Happy Pride month to my fellow LGBTQA+ aquarists! After losing Beau, I left his tank empty until I found a betta I really connected with. This little guy just happened to be the same colors as the lesbian flag, and my gay ass couldn’t help it, especially during pride month. So here he is! Any name suggestions?
