I just got a betta yesterday.
He has fin rot and some bluish white spots all over his body which I though was a fungal infection.
So were I work they sell melafix and I got that, but then his fins started clumping and he was acting a little weird.
Bumping into the glass and stuff.
So I did some research and found out that it can possibly kill bettas, so I stoped treatment, did a 25% water change and stuck with aquarium salt, this was yesterday.
Buy today I saw his fins a little more clumped and more of these icky spots, and his fin rot seems to be getting worse.
So this morn I did a full water change and treated with aquarium salt.
I think it might be ick??
Or velvet? :(
When I shine a flashlight the spots shine this blueish white color, hes a red betta btw.
Or maybe thats just the way he is?
Ill try and put up pictures if my phone lets me!
Please help me!
I have no clue what to do and I don't want to lose him or over medicate him.
I was thinking of starting him on API stress coat with the aquarium salt, scince I imagine he is stressed with all the water changes and stuff.
Please leave me some advice and thanks!
