Hi! I'm desperate.
Last saturday (July 28th) I saw a small white/clear spot on the upper fin of my betta. He's worse now. I need help.
On August 5, 2012
Appearance Changes: Started with a small white/clear spot on the upper fin but now is on the entire upper fin and a little bit at the bottom fin.
Behavior Changes: He's active like always.
Eating Habits: Normal
I don't have the water stats.
Size: 0.5 gallon
Temp: I have not the exact temperature but should be between 70-80 F
Frequency of Tank Cleaning: Like every 3 weeks. I think this was what caused the illness.
Water Additives: Tap water dechlorinator.
Feeding (food type/frequency): 3 Pellets once a day.
Tank Mates: He's alone.
Any treatment so far and when: I started his treatment every day with Quick cure (1 drop on every 2 gallons, 100% water change every day) on July 28th and he was getting worse. On August 2nd, I stop the Quick cure treatment and started treating him every day with aquarium salt (0.5 teaspoon on every 0.5 gallon, 100% water change every day).
List any past health problems: His first illness since I have it (March 2012).
