Don't know what possibly could happened. How is he doing? You giving him 2 tsp/gall right? Do you still have thermometer in his tank to monitor the temperature?

he might have ich which is a very contagious disease where the fish appear to be dusted in salt. Quarantine him immediately.

Good luck!

He ate a little. Still quiet but I think a little better. I am still worried thigh. I am finding I have a tendency to worry though.

I feel the same way - I bonked my daughter's betta Indigo with the water change cup cause he was coming up to look at it as I was putting it in. (Mind you, this was the emergency water change happening after we accidentally turned his water into swamp soup) Seems like I knocked a scale or two on his back off, and I've been fretting about it ever since.

Day 3 of AQ salt and warm water for us too! Good luck, and I hope Guppy is on the mend.

Keep eye on him. I really don't expect him to get lethargic or stop eating. It shouldn't happen. Just want to make sure you do 2 tsp/gall right?

You know it actually happened to me too. I did it by accident i bonked betta with water. I poured it on his head. Next day he has white fuzzy patches just like fungus on his head and then it spread to the gills. I couldn't believe it. I thought my fish has fungus which usually never happen to my bettas because I keep them in low temperature 74*. Because i think the warmer the temp the more chance of the fungus. So I was surprised. To make long story short it was slime coat from the i guess damage... He cleared pretty fast.

I wrote it because it was interesting. Really looked like fungus.

Also if your fish active and eating, and didnít develop any other physical symptoms I think he could be fine just with extra water changes.

Do you know right instructions for aquarium salt treatment? It is really important to do right dosage and duration. Not-therapeutic dosage might not help and can limit it ability to work for treatment when needed.

Good luck.

Should I start tapering off the meds?

The salt alone should be enough to finish the treatment right?
