Then definitely ammonia poisoning/burn. The red gills, is basically the burn and may take a long time to heal. Suzi never quite healed from it, and Sarah's dorsal never grew back.

Basically, if you can get the baby to eat give it lots of good food - frozen brine, bloodworms, and even frozen daphnia. Hikari makes good pellets, jsut make sure whatever pellets you use are high in protein Water changes will be a must, I suggets daily mainly because it is a baby, and it will help so much!

Did a water change already and will do one before bed, I have hikari micro pellets and hikari first bites, gilly wont eat the micro pellets but attacks the first bites, i offered some last night and it looked like he/she wanted some his/her mouth was going nuts. I also have the the frozen blood worms and brine shrimp, my mom wonders why i buy so much stuff, ill try those tonight around feeding time so everyone gets a treat. so far still alive and doesnt look worse

That's good. Even if he looks the same, it's better than looking worse!!

My baby got ich right when she got home from petco. I didnt even know what to medicate such a tiny thing for. I ended up using kordon ich attack, aquarium salt and a waterchange every half a day. i think the water changes really helped her recover. I never even saw the brave thing flash with all thpse spots covering her. baby betta are definitely just as much the mini warriors their parents are

I wish you all the best!
