Greetings to all!
I've given up on Yahoo Answers... I bet you guys are way more rad, informative and helpful.
Anyhow! I have a lovely male betta (Eitaro) who appears to have white nostrils. Betta's do have little noses, yes? Since his nostrils are so tiny, it's hard to tell if the "white" is fungus like. I hadn't noticed this before.
But wait, I must tell you I am currently treating him for fin rot. He was living in a (what I did not realize was a horrible home) 1/2 gallon plastic "tank". He developed fin rot a few months back, I started treating him with Jungle Fungus Eliminator, and he started to get better. I bought him new decorations for the "tank", which took up more room than previously, and he developed fin rot again, and barely swam around (he was so active before). He has recently been moved into a brand new 5 gallon glass tank, complete with filter (no heater, as my apt. is warm all the darn time). As soon as he moved in there, you could tell he was quite happy, he's back to his active self. I have been following the Tetracylcine directions exactly as instructed, with the proportionate dose.
So, has anyone else experienced this? Or may it indeed be a new fungal sort of deal going on? Would the T.C. aid in remedying this? Or perhaps, after I'm done the course of T.C., start with J.F.E.? I don't want to mess things up, he's been through too much already.
Many, many thanks and appreciation!
