Hails, (not familiar with terms)
My betta 'Ryu
' is sick, he is now on quarantine on a 1gal. bowl with a small artificial plant and some gravel. He have a popeye and a bit white bellow the mouth, close to the gills. Also, the fins are shorter and curl in the ends.
I do water changes for him every day, he is eating,
and been medicated 3 days till today with API: Melafix. I also simultaneously have filter change and treated the 10 gal. tank with API: E.M. Erythromycin(powder) to have it ready when he gets better..normaly I use the Tetra: AquaSafe Plus. Have to mention that he shares with 5 small Neon Tetras, 1 Albino Rainbow Shark(2 inches), and 1 Chinese Algae Eater(2 inches)..thats "the whole pack".
Now I read about some salt that helps, also that Mardel: Maracyn Plus
is good for popeye, but I need some guidance about what to do and not to, what to spect, some preventive routine after sickness. The best Ph level in consideration with the other mentioned fishes and some other water cares.
Thanks for read!!
