Help identifying illness on betta


Recommended Posts

Hey there, my bettas left pectoral fin has turned clear and shows inflammation at the base, it started about a week ago and started quickly. Any thoughts to what it can be? 

  • pH - 7.0
  • Nitrates - 20
  • Hardness - 60
  • Nitrite - 0
  • Ammonia - 0
  • KH/Buffer - 80
  • Water Temperature - 78

It looks like it may be an injury. Maybe an infection from a small wound. I would suggest putting your betta in a quarantine system and treating with an antibacterial med (or low dose salt). Observe for a few days to see if it improves. Because it has grown so quickly, I doubt that it's a tumor or anything like that (just my guess...not a vet). 

I hope you get it resolved!
