Please help me with my Betta's please!!
It all started about a week ago when my male bettas eyes developed a white dot in the middles. It looks like cataracts and is only in the center of each eye. There is no swelling or popping out noticable. He was eating and acting fine so i just did a 50% h2o change and monitored.
2 days ago he developed what looks like a pellet in his nostril which turned white yesterday. I took an h2o sample to the pet store and asked for help. H2o was good and they recommended I use Bettafix for my guy as they think it is fungal infection. I gave the appropriate dose last night. After giving it I looked up on here about bettafix and heard the horror stories
. I have been closely monitoring my bettas for any reaction.
Tonight I went to give them there bedtime pellets and found my female, (not the original sicky) hiding in a plant with gasping gills!!!! She has never done this before!! I panicked...did a 75% h2o change. as I started the change she snapped out of it and came around the gravel syphon as she normally does and acted normal. After the h2o change I feed them and she ate a pellet but spit it back out and refused to eat. This is the girl that would eat 10 pellets a meal!!
As it stands my male is acting fine but still has the spots on his eyes and a white thing on his nose. My female has stress lines and not eating but is acting normal, (comes to the glass when i look in, swimming around etc). I am so concerned but do not want to use the Bettafix again
They live in a 10gal tank. Have a heater set at 80, a filter, artifical plants, and gravel. Living with them are 3 dwarf frogs and 1 snail. I think the water quality is ok since presently 2 of my dwarf frogs seem to be mating.
I have attached 2 pics of them from today in case I am missing something that your experienced eyes can see.
Please help....What should I do?
