Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Weird "mold" looking growth on tail fin, slightly paler than normal (that could be me over reacting as I'm very loving towards him)
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Less active
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Noticed small growth this morning, has probably quadrippled in size over the last 12 hours.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? I have isolated him into a 5gal heated tank at 28 degrees Celcius. I cannot buy medice till tomorrow evening, unsure of what to buy.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Had a white spot on his head and was very lazy when another fish in the tank died.
How old is your fish (approximately)? 1 1/2 years.
Thanks in advance, I'm wondering how I should treat it, hes had fin rot before... this looks more like a fungal growth, unfortunately I can't get pictures of it right now because its 1am where I live.
