A healthy and active fighter fish (betta fish) is a pleasure to watch. On the contrary, a sick fighter fish will worry the owner. In some cases, a sick fighter fish can rob its owner of his money. For all these reasons, it is very important to keep the fighter fish healthy. A fighter fish (betta fish) owner should be aware of the types of fighter fish diseases which could be fatal to his fish.

Below, I have listed few fighter fish diseases (betta fish diseases) which can be very fatal for a fighter fish. They are:

1. Internal parasites
2. Velvet
3. Fish tuberculosis
4. Severe fin and body rot
5. Dropsy
6. Inflamed gills

Among these fighter fish diseases (betta fish diseases), fish tuberculosis and dropsy have no treatment. Hence, a fighter fish affected by those two fighter fish diseases will die within few days.
