Thank you soooo much Peaches!!! He lived a good long life. At nearly four years old, it was just his time to go. He was a veil tail, but he had a very compact body shape like a double tail, and he's had SBD issues on and off throughout his life. I guess it just slowly wore out his swim bladder.
I saw that you treated with AQ salt, you know you're supposed to use epsom salt for SBD, right? Just making sure, I get them mixed up all the time lol! AQ salt is for external injuries/fin tears, and epsom is for bloating/SBD/internal infections that cause swelling.
My Current bettas:
Sullivan- Orange rose tail halfmoon male
Daisy- Mustard Gas (black and yellow) veil tail female
Milton- Teal butterfly halfmoon male (mom's betta)
DFTBA to nerdfighters working to decrease world suck!
