    Hi I was told by another member to contact you for advice on my betta. I've had Bam for 3 years, he's in a 2 gallon tank, filtered with weekly water changes. He eats betta pellets. 3 or 4 a day. I noticed he recently got lumps on both sides, one bigger than the other. I thought it might be constipation so I fasted him for 3 days and then fed him the inside of a mashed up pea, which I read several places works for constipation, but now looking on here, people are saying peas are bad to feed them? Anyway, there was no change in the lumps so I tried 1 teaspoon of epsom salt in a gallon tank for 20 mins and then out him back in his tank with a water change. He still has these lumps. He is acting normally - no behavior changes. Any advice would be appreciated. The lumps are farther back on his body - not up front by his gills or anything.

    Oh, really.... OK, then I'm getting the kit today as you know. I also have another question. (I'm a pain aren't I? -_-) Can a Betta be born with a defective gill or labyrinth? Remember the yawns I told you about? And Lebron gasps as well. But he's still active and all those good signs... Once I test, I'll see where I am in the cycle and if there's an ammonia problem. I hope not... I really don't want Lebron to suffer because of all the conditions I don't know about. :( ~LTB

    Hi OFL. Again. Lol. My parents are already letting me buy the test kit. :D Anyway, does a bacterial bloom HAVE to happen once the bb start to grow? I never got one... And I've noticed that most members have a bloom, too. What do you think? ~LTB
