Check up!~

So I've had my Betta, Mr. Fish, for some time now(a little over half a year). I left for a month on a study abroad and had my sister take care of him. To my horror, when I returned, his bowl looked disgusting and his heater had broken :(

I did some research and found out he had a mild case of fin rot and have been treating it accordingly with AQ salt the last few days and just bought him a brand-spankin new aquarium with the works.

But anyways, my question is, do you guys see anything I missed in my diagnosis? He's being very active, eating like a pig and is rarely(if not at all) clamping his fins though, I'm noticing a little bit of itching on his part.

I'm just a bit concerned with the muck looking material that has accumulated around his head. Should I treat for an early onset of velvet?!? Or am I just being a fish hypochondriac? :C







A video of him swimming about, just to show he's being plenty active :'D

he looks fine to me besides his torn fins, and no, fin rot is when the tips o find are red black or white. His he must have just cut, some clean water will do the trick.

cheers!

Hey thanks!
About five days ago when I started giving him aq salt, the back part of his fin (where the tear is) was all gunky and there was black extending into his fins a bit
I think I caught the early onset and hopefully prevented it hahaa
