Last week I rescued a betta...generally I don't do rescues, but for some reason this guy just "clicked" with me.
When I bought him, he was thin, clamped (although he doesn't have much finnage to begin with), and he was pretty much transparent.
I put him in a 1 gallon with a heater and I was doing water changes every other day, but he hasn't perked up at all. :(
He lies in one spot, and it looks like it's a little hard for him to breathe. He also shows zero interest in food, and I've tried three different types of pellets and brine shrimp.
In addition to this, he has red streaks on his fins.
I went out and bought Maracyn Two since I thought his symptoms matched septicemia...but I don't know much about fish diseases, so I thought I'd double check here.
It's his second day on it and he isn't showing any signs of improvement. In addition to the Maracyn Two, I've been adding aquarium salt and I'm now doing daily 100% water changes.
Is there anything else I can do for the little guy? I feel bad for him. :(
