I have a little guy in his own little Taj Mahal, 1 gallon, by himself, heater, filter (carbon currently out). I'm an experienced fish dad, but this is my first Betta, I rescued him from the store in a half empty plastic cup, and now I'm a mess over him (worried).
He currently has greyish/white spots and is extremely distressed, including now basically resting on the bottom of his tank. From everything I've read and photos looked at, I beleive its Columnaris, but we all second guess. The store I purchased him said Ick, its not ick, I know Ick, but I treated him for that with zero results. I've also treated his tank with Jungle Binox with zero results as well.
I've been changing water regularly, adding aquarium salt. I fear he I'm going to lose him, but I want to try whatever is required of me. I beleive all animals deserve 110% of what we can give them, down to the smallest fish. I would really appreciate any ideas and/or treatment ideas at this point. I really don't want to lose him.
Thank you for any help! Gerry
