I have a female HM betta..she's jumped out from the tank when I was at the outside of the house.
When I arrived home she was laying on the table, still breathing, then I quickly moved her into her tank. Quickly gave Fish Salt, and gave some Rid-All General Aid medicine.
her condition :
appetite still good (eat many)
still swimming around, but often lay down
position still straight, not laying on 1 side of her body
the problem :
HER FINS ARE CLAMPED! (PECTORAL AND PELVIC) :(
She can swim around with her tail and her anal fins, but her Pectoral Fin and her Pelvic Fin are CLAMPED!!! it makes her hard to stay still in the water, so that she often to lay down on the bottom side of the tank...
Sad to see her trying so hard to swim on the surface of the water :(
so I reduce the water not to high, so she more easily swims to the surface..
How to cure the Fins that clamped after drying?
I really love her so much, what is the best treatment for this?
Can I open the clamped fins by my finger? (I know it;s a silly question maybe, but is that possible and safe for her?)
thank you so MUCH!
