Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? It hasn't, except when I took the pictures today I noticed his gill on the left side sticking out. Over the past two weeks I've noticed him "shedding" on the tips of his fins and sometimes head, but it isn't spreading nor growing and falls off if I move him.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? super lethargic- doesn't move except to eat
When did you start noticing the symptoms? 2 weeks ago.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Yes, aquarium salt, general cure
Does your fish have any history of being ill? no
How old is your fish (approximately)?Ive had him since last december, so about 6 months. Aquabid purchase.
He isn't himself, eats normal but doesn't swim anymore. His poop is normal, cannot see any sign of parasites and his water condition has not changed. None of my other fish are showing any of this behavior and I have a full sorority in there. My question is about how to proceed. He is getting worse, not better. I HAVE noticed a tiny why thing hanging out of his gills and I saw once his poop white. Thinking internal parasites. What is the best way and medicine to treat with? I can pick it up tonight
