Hi my Name is D...And I have a beta fish named Turtle. well his name is "Honu" which is hawaiian for turtle lol.. you may ask why I would name him that.. it was because when I went to the pet shop I really wanted a turtle.. turtles esp sea turtles are my favorite.. but When i saw Honu I knew he was one of a kind and had to have him... and when I brought him home everyone asked me where my turtle was and I said he is right here and held him up.. he is for the most part an aqua green with baby blue and pink and white and purple.. a beautiful array of color.. I've had him a lil over a year now.. and here is where my concern kicks in.. I have read up on just about everything i can find and I cant find an answer for this question.. or symptom.. a couple of days ago the frontal part of his body started to..well expand like a swelling... I dont understand it.. he seems fine and act it too.. but the expansion of his head really worries me.. can anyone tell me what it is...I would really appriciate the help

it sounds like you are either dealing with dropsy or with a tumor. Can you describe the symptoms more precisely, please? You should know, though, if it is either of those illnesses, that they are both pretty much terminal. I would just make sure his home is very clean and to make him as comfortable as possible for the rest of his little life. Hang in there! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
