As a new betta owner, you may not yet be familiar with your fish and how it should look or behave. Since many new betta owners are honestly not aware that their fish may be sick or injured, here are commonsigns of both healthy and unhealthy fish to be aware of:
Unless your cat medically can’t have moist foods, add some into your cat’s diet, especially if there is repeat bladder stones/other bladder problems with your cat or your cat’s family history with bladder problems.
We recently went to the vet to see about a bladder problem that Lucky had but when they ended up taking his blood work the vet found something else that’s more serious. They think it could be cancerous and want to do a biopsy to confirm before they start any treatment. We’re taking him to another vet later today to get a second opinion.
My sister and I are raising money to pay for the biopsy to confirm what he has and start looking at treatment options. My sister @delaneydoodlez has offered to do art commissions to pay for the biopsy. She even made her own post about it! I will also be making a lot more things to sell on my redbubble and 100% of the profit that I make on there will go into funding Lucky’s surgery.
When we took him to the vets before it was around $250+ which is a lot considering our current monthly bill situation. We have to pay over $600 a month for our phone bill and we’re also in the middle of a remodel so that’s been very costly so any amount would help at this point and if you can’t donate please reblog this! We love our baby boy and we want him to be with us for a long, long time. Please help us.

Potential Health Issues seen through Astrology Charts
When Looking at an individual horoscope there are several places you may see where potential health concerns can occur. The most major one is the sign ruling the 6th house cusp.
Planets in the 6th house can also bring the health afflictions that can be brought on by the body functions and parts they rule over. If you use Placidus you may look at at both Placidus and Whole signs’ 6th house cusps (and planets) to determine what afflictions can occur. Another condition that can cause health issues can be Sun and sign it’s in. This is simply because the Sun rules over the physical vitality.
In the natal birth chart the conditions mentioned above can show lifelong chronic health conditions or potential dispositions as life goes. If suffering from an ongoing health condition transits to the 6th house ruler may agitate or alleviate them temporarily. Transits to the sun may also in some cases cause this effect. A planet transiting the personal 6th house may cause a possible trigger of one of these conditions as well in extreme circumstances.
It is recommended to use this information with contemplation in learning how to prepare to navigate the potential these conditions can come to pass. Prevention is the best medicine.
Now the Conditions:
Aries on 6th House Cusp (Scorpio Ascendant) / Sun in Aries / Mars in 6th House
Chronic pain is a major side effect of chronic illness. I have found a spice that is an all natural pain killer/ symptom calmer. It’s called Turmeric! Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant, but the root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine.
Turmeric is used for joint pain, stomach problems (including heartburn and Crohn’s disease), skin problems, inflammation from injury or chronic illness, recovery from surgery and cancer, autoimmune disorders, common illness (headaches, fever, etc.), diabetes, jaundice, liver problems, high cholesterol, fatigue, fibromyalgia, leprosy, menstrual problems, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, swelling in the middle layer of the eye (anterior uveitis), water retention, worms, tuberculosis, urinary bladder inflammation, and kidney problems.
One thing to consider though is the medication you are currently taking. It can cause stomach discomfort with curtain medicine (such as omeprazole). Just be cautious and do your research or talk to your doctor(s).
The list is definitely impressive, it helps so so much with my EDS. Since obviously you can’t just eat it, this recipe will make it taste delicious!
1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, preferably coconut milk beverage or almond milk
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
1 (1-inch) piece turmeric, unpeeled, thinly sliced, or ½ teaspoon dried turmeric
1 (½-inch) piece ginger, unpeeled, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
¼ teaspoon whole black peppercorns
Ground cinnamon (for serving)
Whisk coconut milk, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey, coconut oil, peppercorns, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors have melded, about 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon.
Golden milk can be made 5 days ahead. Store in an airtight container and chill. Warm before serving.
Using fresh turmeric adds a clean, bright flavor to this drink, but dried turmeric can be substituted when fresh is not available. Keep in mind that dried turmeric will settle to the bottom of the mug, so stir well before drinking.
Let me just start with saying I don’t breed betta and am not super knowledgeable on the genetics of them at a bio level, so most information in that regard will be researched from other sources and condensed based on my understanding. I do however know many of the types and have seen common correlations associated with certain traits. This will be a guide on the different tail types and future ones will be made on coloring and patterns. If you ave any points to add based on your own personal experinces send them my way and I’ll add them.
When you have a sick betta fish on your hands, it is never a good feeling, and especially since few people readily know how to diagnose or treat fish illnesses.
I have experienced swim bladder problems myself with bettas and have done treatment and plenty of research on the topic. So, to help you out if your fish is swimming oddly, the following is what you need to know about swim bladder problems and possible treatments:

Summary: Dan has a bladder condition and it takes an intervention from Phil to get him to the toilet in time. An unexpected boner leads to some… watersports.
Warnings: smut, omorashi/watersports, swearing
Word count: 1745
A/N: So this is long for an afternoon’s work - totally didn’t plan this in maths class. For some reason I’ve wanted to write an omorashi fic for a while, but I get if it’s not for you. Anyway, happy reading!
Dan had been shifting in his seat for the last five minutes and I could say for sure it was because he needed to pee. I watched as he crossed one leg over the other and adjusted his position in the chair. Having a long term bladder problem, he had to go the toilet a lot more frequently than most people. I’d been with him all morning and I knew for a fact he hadn’t been. In the usual routine, he would have a visit at break, but we’d been called to an impromptu meeting about an upcoming school trip.
Now we were sitting in third period, it had been fifteen minutes since the end of interval. Our usual teacher was off ill and so we had a supply from another school. This particular supply teacher had introduced himself as Mr Brown, and no offence to Browns but he was as boring as the name would suggest. He had short grey hair and was wearing a shirt and waistcoat that certainly did not go together. He would shush us if the noise level got above that of a pin dropping and had already refused one girl’s request to go to the toilet. I could guess Dan was nervous about asking; all the regular teachers knew of his condition and had been instructed to let him out to the toilet but it was unlikely Mr Brown knew.
