Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? He has very bad fin rot. He is a delta double tail, so they look like they went through a wood chipper. His bottom fin has a tear and some rot and his top has some rot. But mainly in his tail is it the worse.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? He still eats and is active.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? About two weeks, but it was hard to notice at first b/c he has a white rim on his tail fin and they ruffle some like a rose tail. But I believe it started on his top fin. Now the rot it all over his fins except his side ones.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Yes, I did a tiny bit of aquarium salts for a couple of days. But then did a very low dose of Ali Pimafix for almost a week (I know it said do this for a week then a water change but I'm trying another treatment since I'm worried it might hurt his labyrinth organ now but he hasn't acted any differently when using it) Now I'm trying a low dose of Mardel Maracyn Two have been doing it for 4 days now
Does your fish have any history of being ill? No
How old is your fish (approximately)? I do not know. But he is full grown.
