Indigo's Journal

well this Journals not going to be very interesting to other people its mostly so i can keep track of how things are going with him and his condition

he came from a pet shop that had him in a tank with a very powerful filter so when
i put him in his new 6 gallon tank he wasn't used being able to swim without a filter blowing him everywhere and he was a very weak swimmer but he soon picked up he was very happy to have a 6 gallon tank to him self

but sadly i didn't know anything about fish when i got him and i had him in with sharp decor and only changed the water every three weeks and that resulted in him getting fin rot i still feel bad about it it took me two months to treat him his tail looked very different by the end of it

november 25 2012 he got a white spot on his chin that he still has to this day

january 21 2013 he got 2 more spots on his head i posted thread about it and came to the conclusion its lymphocystis or cysts

this month he now has another small one on his head one on his back and one on his side these spot once on him will never leave him:(

anyway i'm going to use this journal to write about his condition
and also water changes and water tests and anything he does worth writing about:)

I have a blue betta names Frank and what you're describing sounds exactly like what I am experiencing with my betta. I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with him and someone suggested it might be lymphocystis.

Does what your betta has look anything like what my betta has (see attached pictures)? I'll be following your blog to get updates on Indigo's progress.

i forgot about this thread, i need to add he has something similar on his dorsal fin now, and he also had one on his eye but it grew out thankfully

its hard to tell from the picture whether your betta has the same but it does look similar, does he have any white on the tips of his fins? because Indigo has white on the tips of all his fins, how long has Frank had these spots?
Frank looks very similar to Indigo it makes me wonder if its something genetic but i really have no idea,

i'm doing salt treatment at the moment but its having no effect,

this is a video of him you can see the spots on him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWvNH...ature=youtu.be

the odd tail spot now appears to be gone but the tail still has a slight bulge inward and there's a small hole, this is first time i've ever known one of these spots to disappear so maybe it wasn't the same type as the others.

the bulge is gone now and so is the hole, i've decided that spot he had on his tail was probably just slime coat, i don't think it was the same as the other spots.
