Well here is the fishy up date. It was feeding time for all fishes.
He still refuses food......
That and it seems to have gotten worse. The infected scales have now reached up towards his dorsal fin. On both sides, in kind like a saddle fashion if you put it under the horse.
Its burgundy red in the middle, and the effected scales are raised that around the Ulcer.... He has also lost a scale as I have removed it from the bottom of the tank, not knowing what it was.
He is very lethargic, hardly swimming around, have kept the light off, so not to stress him out.
at this point, I think all I can do, is make him comfy. I don't think I caught it in time. since its continuing to spread.
This being said, the practices that they ( pet stores chains) hold for all fish, not just our betta friends is deplorable. I am just sad that I myself couldn't catch it in time.
It doesn't look good at all, I expect that he will be gone some time this week if not in the morning. He just looks that bad.
