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
3. Fish tuberculosis
4. Severe fin and body rot
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. A fighter fish can be saved from any kind of fighter fish diseases if proper measures are taken like fish tank or bowl maintenance, feeding well-conditioned food, adding disease-free tank mates etc.
