***Please note that sometimes when he misses a food pellet, this same spikey stuff always grows on any food pellets on the bottom of the bowl, within hours, before I change the bowl.***
The stuff in the red guy in the photo looks cloudy and amorphous and like it's swarming all over him, the stuff on my blue guy is spikey and growing from two tufts on his underside (and now one tiny tuft on the tip of his bottom fin).
The problem is that this medicine (Betta Revive) has worked for the same exact thing - it has worked for him twice, actually in the past two years. This time, I think it's become resistant. Does Maracyn work for a similar thing that Betta Revive does?
Thanks again. Oh & he is in a 1.5 gallon warm fresh water bowl. I know you guys recommend 5+ gallons, but he has done great in here for a long time, I can keep it very clean and balanced, and I can manage the plants, snails, etc., so I don't want to switch the whole living quarters after years in this one.
Hrmmm well if you think it is fungus perhaps you should try a new med. I am not sure if maracyn works on fungal outbreaks since it is for bacterial infections specifically. If you think it may be fungus you could try maroxy by maradel it works wonders for me
