I'm a college student without a roommate and decided to get a fish for company. My first fish didn't make it to 2 weeks I believe because of fin rot. I decided to try again and got a new fish and upgraded supplies. My current set up is as follows:
-treat water with BettaSafe conditioner
-feed 4-5 pellets/day
-I don't have a water test kit and may not for a while because of lack of transportation
I'm very nervous for this fsh because I just noticed today that Gamma's fins have begun to turn clear at the tips. This is what happened to my first fish. Also, Gamma has been resting at the bottom of the tank more often as well as hiding. Overall, he also looks less healthy than he did a few days ago.
I did a 50% water change today and re-conditioned the water. This was the first water change since I put Gamma in this last Sunday (9/16). I'm planning on doing 2 50% water changes per week starting now (is this sufficient?).
I've attached some pics. I really just want to have a healthy and happy fish so any help is very much appreciated.
