Hi i have a betta, Ive had him for about six months, and i bought him from petco, so i would imagine he is pretty young. he started in a half gallon tank and about 2 months ago i moved him to a 10 gal. with 3 danios and a plecostomus and they all seem to get along just fine (i also had a starfire red glofish but the betta killed him a week or two ago. which sucks because the glofish cost more then the betta did.) lately he has been getting caught in the filter and his fins are getting torn, but im not sure its because of the filter, or not.
When i first got him he had completely clear pectoral fins, but After he killed the glofish they got foggy, with little tiny white specks (they arent on the fins, but inside the fins) and they are tattered like the rest of his fins. he doesnt like to use the left one, which is the more torn of the two.
today I noticed he has one foggy white speck on the lens each eye. he acts like he can see just fine though. he seems to spend more time resting then he used too (on plants and the bottom of the tank).
I moved him into an isolation tank and gave him some ick medication for the white specks. Im just wondering if these things are all related or could I just be over reacting. I hope its the latter.
i do weekly 100% water changes and clean the plants (one of which is live)
i try to retrive whats left of the food after they eat (sometimes i forget.)
i feed all of my fish freeze-dried bloodworms and occasionally betta pellets.
