I work at a pet supply chain that sells bettas. We've got a little butterfly veiltail in that looks like he's suffering from swim bladder disease. I'm planning on bringing him home with me tonight to treat him as we don't have epsom salt in the store. Can someone confirm that he has SBD based on his symptoms and perhaps give me some treatment suggestions?
He looks outwardly healthy, but his back end keeps drifting back up to the surface. He's just in a couple cups of water, which I will be changing momentarily, and once I get him home I'm going to stick him in a warm gallon pitcher of clean water.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
