Hi all. It looks like I'm in for another betta misadventure. We JUST got Soldier over dropsy, and he seems just healthy as can be, but I was hesitant to move him back in with other fish. The tank I have him in is a 1.5 gallon that we were using as a hospital tank, it's at 78 degrees, and it's still in the beginnings of the nitrogen cycle. Ammonia is at .25 right now, doing a partial water change here in a bit.
With all that being said, I thought that there was just some bacterial bloom in the tank now that the antibiotics are gone, but from all of the descriptions I can find, this doesn't look the same. It's on the sides of the tank, not just milky water.
If you look at the pictures, it's really obvious right near the filter. It's white and really long and stringy. You can see how thick it is in the pic with the heater. It's growing all over the tank, these were just the clearest pictures I could get.
That's a poop over in the corner btw. It isn't uneaten food.
