Yes, if there's anything wrong externally, treat him with aquarium salt. It's 1 teaspoon per gallon and you'd have to do 100% daily water changes for 10 days.

If you can't even change the water, he'll die. If you think he's suffering too much, then euthanize him. It's to end his suffering from this life.

How's Equinox anyways? I'm still pretty mad that you got him instead of getting Dedede a better tank. :l There are no excuses of taking care of any animal. They can't take care of themselves so you will have to do it.

If your parents want you to take care of the Bettas, then why do you get in trouble by doing water changes?

Equinox was also my mom's idea, fyi. and he's doing good, the euthanizing part gave me a small headache, but I'm ignoring it.

trying to get AQ salt, I think I may not be able to get it, I might have to euthanize King Dedede... secretly...

and about the water changes... i don't know...

Are you sure? I remember you said you had $20 but you used it for Equinox since you we're so "excited".

Whatever you do, don't freeze him to death or chop him up. Worst scenarios ever. You might be too inexperienced for this so this should be a last resort.

I would not recommend you to euthanize him willy nilly. You might probably torture him instead.

So you won't euthanize him if he's suffering? You could always buy clove oil and a disposable container. But then again, you might go astray with the directions and end up torturing him with oil. :/

Just to keep track of the thread, these are the options:

A. Treat both problems by buying medication and cleaning the water 100% everyday.
B. Don't treat the problem but still do 100% changes per day
C. Rehome him.
D. Euthanize him
E. Keep to the old routine with little water changes and let sickness take him


Those are the options.

Whichever one you choose is up to you.
