Thanks for the tips. I will definitely look for a testing kit (not strips! :) ) And hopefully should have more luck at this other pet shop getting water conditioner and aquarium salt.
As for Turtle, at the moment he seems the same. No better or worse. One of the white spots that had almost faded last night is back again. It's right next to the lump on his nose. He ate 2 pellets today but thats it. Gills still don't close properly. I'm just hoping he will stick it out until i get some salt.
Speaking of which, any advice on that? Will salt serve as a treatment? How long should i keep him in water that has had the salt added? And how long should I keep it up? I have seen that it's recommended to always add a bit of salt to the water. I'm sure there will be info on the box but I would feel safer hearing it from savvy Betta parents :D
This is my first little Betta but I am hooked!!! I really REALLY REALLY want to make him better.
