Symptoms and Treatment
: Both betas had significant color and personality changes. They eat like pigs and swim around but Scarlet’s gills seem bigger, has a major tear in right pectoral fin, as well as a protruding white spot on the same fin, and Sapphire has major fin rot,. Administered Maracyn II for 5 days and Maracide every other day.
The last two days
: After administering the antibiotic, we gave them a break for 5 days, filtered out the meds, and administered Maracyn II again. Scarlet developed white cottony patches on mouth and around both pectoral fins within 14 hours. Sapphire hasn’t gotten better. We’re now administering Maracyn and Maracyn II as well as Maracide. We are also using aquarium salts, stress coat, and Seachem neutral regulator to condition the water. We removed all ornaments.
