We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      i keep some bettas around cuz they're pretty, and i was wondering if they can have seizures. i got him a couple weeks ago at petsmart just for the hell of it really, and today he just started swimming in circles. big ones at first, but near the end they were really tight, nose to tail, so fast i thought he was going to spin right out of his bowl! and then he lay at the bottom of his bowl gasping, and nearly bent double, until he died. really unusual. the petsmart lady said stress, but she said betta-fix would cure him too, so i don't believe her. so... if they can't have seizures, what happened to my betta?

      Actually, anything with a nervous system can have seizures.

      yeah, that's what i thought, i'd just never heard of it. so you think that's what happened? i guess it doesn't really matter, it was a 4 dollar fish (nothing compared to some of the other brutes here, i guarantee) and i'll get another one friday, i was just curious. poor little bugger.

      My fish died tonight I only had him a week. I have never seen anything like it. He had white spot so I treated him today then after about an hour he starting flipping around the tank swimming so fast smashing into the sides of the tank. Then he kept swimming in circles on his side for a few minutes then he floated down the bottom on his side sort of bent right over and he died within seconds. Poor little thing bless him.
