Fred is my beta, I have had his about 6 months, he has always been happy, eating, building bubble nest, playing in the plants, But this morn I noticed he was not eating and was darting across his tank as if something is bothering him, I think I see a little(very,very little) white on his mouth, I have been reading all day trying to find something close to his problem, So I think he has parasites, correct me if I'm wrong, I went to the local pet store and got salt and Medaication for Ike,, he lives in a one gallon tank, I put 1/4 teaspoon salt and 3 small drops of medacation,, the temp stays around 72-78, I do weekly tank cleanings, but this week I have done two alredy, because it smells,, I'm really worried about him, someone PLEASE HELP FRED,,,,,!!!!!! Thank you
I'm salting daily, started yesterday, and again this morn,, do I need to do any water changes during this time?, this is his second day not eating, and it scares me,, is it better to keep him in the dark while he is sick??? If this is parasites I feel I caught it pretty quick, but ,,,,, how long does it take after treatment starts should I see some kinda recovery from him???
Whoa, don't medicate unless you know the problem... Just calm down for me and fill this out please. The temperature needs to be at least 75F or else they get sick easier. I replied to your other thread so you need to listen to me in this 1st.
