My betta Steve has been sick for the past month and a half. He was bought from a pet store with not a good record on animal care, and has been sick since the day I brought him home with one thing or another.
Right now, he's had ich for almost a month. It's only on his fins, and doesn't spread to his body. I've tried everything I can think of. I added aquarium salt, moved him to a larger tank, warmed up the water, and used medication. I finally stopped the medication after two weeks (the directions on the bottle was for 4 days). It's not gone and he continues to deteriorate.
He only swims to come up for air, and the swimming is skiddish and twitchy. He'll come to the food to eat, but spits it back out. His fins look ragged to the point there is a hole through one of them (possibly from the ich).
Should I put him down, and if so what method do you recommend?
