I'm really sad... I had brought home a lovely blue VT boy a little less than two weeks ago... He died tonight.
I've been doing my best to keep him warm, in clean water, and not over-fed, but this last Tuesday, he stopped eating his pellets. I thought it seemed like he was just waiting for me to give him bloodworms, so I didn't worry at first.
I changed his water on Friday before going to my parents' house for the weekend, and asked my roommate to check on him and try to feed him on Saturday. My roomie noticed a small white spot around 9-ish Saturday night, but didn't think much of it.
When I came home this evening, he had a larger white spot on his belly, right under his pectoral fins and gills, and his slime coating was sloughing off. He was propping himself up on the little ship cave, and was having trouble moving. His fins had started to flake away, and his body was almost black. I immediately called my best friend (who also has betta) to ask what to do, and was advised (under the assumption that he had maybe fin rot or a fungus) to move him from the tank, clean it, and start him on an AQ salt treatment. He died as I moved him. When I went to clean out his bowl, and all the things he had in it they were all covered in slimy film as well.
My best friend told me to take pictures of him afterwards to get a better idea of what happened.
Please I would like to know what happened to my Nobunaga to why he died. Any information would be helpful.
