So my recently new betta has had some cotton growths on his pectoral fins. I treated him w/ tetracycline and the treatment didn't work so after changing his water and giving him a couple days to rest, I tried a salt treatment instead. I added 5 teaspoons of salt and it seems like the growths have now spread and are getting worse. Should I quarantine him in my 2 gal and give him daily water changes? Should I try the salt treatment again in the 2 gal?
I tried getting pictues but the cotton growths don't show up in the pic. The growths look like the white dots a fish gets when it has ick....
