OK, so I was cleaning out my tank and had my Betta in this little bowl. So when i put the conditioner in the tank and went to watch TV to wait for the conditioner to soak in, and i have good news and bad news. the first bad news is that he must of jumped out of his bowl, because he was laying on the floor. the only good news is... he's alive!!! the second bad news is... he has fin rot from being on the floor. I have used this one medication called bettafix, but it isn't working. i need an answer immediately!!
How long ago did it happen? When you say it's not working what do you mean, is it getting worse or just not improving? What size tank? Filtered? Heated? For fin rot I use lots of water changes. But is it fin rot or just damaged from the fall? It takes a while for the fins to grow back sometimes but you shouldn't see it getting any worse. Some people will add Aq salt, premixed, to the tank. Is he acting normal, eating, swimming around? Can you post a pic?
Great questions shellieca and I also agree with just damage-clean/dechlorinated water and good nutrition is the best treatment. Often over treatment can be worse than no treatment at all.
Patience is sometime needed too....fin don't repair overnight-it can take weeks to months in some cases-it depends on the degree of damage, secondary infection, overall health, husbandry, nutrition, genetic, age....etc....Lots of different factors at play....
