Is my betta sick?

I can't tell if he is developing some kind of sickness.



His other fin looked different from his other one.

Are you talking about the red lines? I think those are normal for lighter colored fish but don't quote me on that. I know I see something similar on my yellow CT. It worried me too at first but I do beleive they are just veins.

However, his fins....it kinda looks like he has some fin rot going on...

I have noticed the rot going on, so I've been doing the changes everyday. The tank is a small 2.5 Aqueon mini bow.

If you premix 1 teaspoon of aquarium salt per gallon with 100% daily water changes, it can help with the fin rot. Stress coat will help with fin regrowth .
