Hello!! I'm new to owning a Betta but I've done my research and such since I've had mine so I've been fine on my own for a couple months now but now something weird is going on with my female. My female is kept in a community tank with African dwarf frogs, guppies, dojo loaches, a catfish, and a sucker fish. I have a 20g with live plants, sand, and a filter. I use regular tap water no heater and I don't add anything to the tank. The other day I noticed my female had a couple scales missing what looked like from another fish so I thought she could be sick if someone is picking on her so I took her out and put her in her own glass bowl so I could keep my eye on her. Since she's been on her own she acts 100% normal. Bubble nests, fanned fins, eating, swimming around and around but nothing crazy but then I looked closely at her gills and I noticed they looked red. But they don't seem swollen (not that I can tell but I'm also inexperienced with sick fish) and since she's not acting weird at all Im having an awful time diagnosing and I'm worried she has something....because if she does I want to treat it right away. So I took some pictures and thought maybe this forum could help me out. So please please help me figure out what's going on with this girl so she can go back with her tank mates.
Oh and she also has a live black worm diet as well as regular water changes. About 10% every other week and about %30 once a month. Oh and if you're wondering why I'm talking like I may have another Betta it's because I do. But he's by himself in a 2.5g healthy as ever. ((: thanks for any advice, info, and tips!!!
Oh and if anyone knows how I can post the pics from my iPhone that also be helpful!! I can't figure it out. :(
