  1. Betta Fish
    I have what I'm pretty sure is a delta-tail mustard gas male betta, the reason I'm not sure is he's suffering from what looks like fin-rot and there isn't much yellow on him if any at all- they're sort of black with tiny blue shimmer and the rest of the fin is almost like a dirtied mustard...

    Picked up a 14" arowana from a guy on craigslist this past Monday. Fish was super healthy and active when I got it. It's now Thursday and I haven't seen him eat anything!

    About a week ago I had three rosy red minnows die. Now I still have a minnow and a catfish in a 10 gal. and they are both completely fine. I did daily water changes for three days to get rid of anything bad in the tank. And before any fish died I had treated them with a parasite medication...

    I've had my gourami for about seven months now, and she has acted normal since I got her. A few days ago I noticed her lying on her side as if see were dead. When I looked closer, I could see that she was still breathing. I immediately took her out of my aquarium and put her in a bowl by...
