My betta Comet has been struggling with severe fin rot. It recently got super aggressive and he lost most of his tail. Four days ago I moved him into bottled water with 2tsp of salt per gallon to help with his fin rot.
The first 3 days he was doing great and showing sights of regrowth. This morning, however, he looked bloated so I didn't feed him. (He normally eats 4 omega 1 pellets in the morning and 3 at night.) When I got home from school, he was collapsed on the floor of his cage with his fins clamped. He was barely moving even when I walked up to him. His fins have lost their regrowth and he looks terrible.
Yesterday I had some heater problems so he went from 70 degrees to 80 back down to 72 and then up to 80 again in a single day. I've fixed the problems now, but do you think that had anything to do with his condition?
What do you think is wrong with him? What can I do to help him? I really don't want him to die!
