Hey guys I decided to join because I am having a hard time trying to figure out what is going on with my betta.
I have have him for a about two weeks. He started in a 2 gallon tank and about 3 days ago I bought and put him in a new 10 gallon tank.
He has a pretty constant temperature of 81-82 degrees and There is a top fin filter on it.
He has always had these small black spots on his anal fin but I was just wondering what you guys think it might be.
This morning I noticed that he can only flare on one side... he does see his reflection a lot and I have covered the back and one side of the tank to help with that. Could he have just pulled a muscle? Haha im seriously worried about this little guy. I cant sleep ahhhh anyway... I was taking a closer look at his gills and noticed a small gold mark on both sides right next to his gill. I tried my best to get a good picture but he wouldnt corporate... he seems to swim a little more sporadic. He paces back and forth in front of the tank a lot. the picture makes the spot look more silver. I will try and get better pictures later after my phone charges more...otherwise the flash wont work....
I did a 30% water change hoping it would help cut down on nitrates if that were the issue. What should I do? Should I medicate him? Should I keep doing water changes? Please help? :(
