Okay, so treating my betta, Bo, has been endless. He was getting better, but now his fins are falling apart. I need some guidance.
2.5 gal hospital tank
AQ Salt (about 1tsp)
Tetracycline was used, but that treatment is over.
Heater set at 81
He eats Omega brand betta pellets
Only thing in his tank besides the heater is a vase he likes to swim in. The vase is clear glass.
Purchase a 10gal so I can get him a filter and treat with Jungle's remedy fiz tabs.
I don't know what filter or heater to get for the 10gal. I was thinking an Aquaclear with a pre-filter sponge over the intake valve and a sponge in front of the outflow to cut down the current.
I don't want to cycle this tank because I don't want to put him through the cycling process. How do I keep it from cycling?
His 5 gal tank is cycles and inhabited by a snail, but I don't want to put him in there until he's fully recovered. Please help. I love this little fish so much. I have carpal tunnel in my hand so changing his water every other day is starting to really hurt, and he is losing his fins even though he was getting better. Am I doing something wrong? What should I do?
