So I have this beautiful betta fish my boyfriend and I share. His name is Gandalf and he is so cute and just beautiful but over the past months we've had him he keeps getting fin rot!
Everytime we think he's just gotten through one by the next few days he'll have it again and I've been following the instructions on the medicine box (maracyn) but it keeps coming back! Gandalf used to have such beautiful almost halfmoon fins! Now he's all tattered and practically finless cos of fin rot!
I've been cleaning his tank religiously but nothing seems to help. I've tried cleaning with soap, with out soap, adding aquarium salt the whole shebang!
Please please please help me. I've owned bettas since late HS and have never come across fin rot this horrible and persistent!
I'd like to save him ASAP from all of it but nothing I'm doing seems to be helping. :(
Gandalf, although he looks beat and tattered is still quite healthy and swimming. He greets me everytime I come visit him but his fins are just ruined! :(
Someone please get back to me asap!
Thanks in advance.
