How has your betta fish's appearance changed?
His fins have grown back since I began treating his fin rot with super clean water and tannins. His color also deepened a bit.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed?
He moves around less than he did before his fins grew back. When he isnít swimming, he floats vertically at the surface with his nose poking out of the water.
When did you start noticing the symptoms?
I first noticed a change in his behavior when he stopped eating. The thread about that can be found here. I noticed him floating vertically this morning when I fed him.
