Hi everyone. I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction.
A little over 2 months ago I acquired 2 bettas (Bubbles and Wiggy) I have them both in separate 1 gallon bowls and I change their water every few days (I use water conditioner) The both of them seem to be doing great and are pretty active and very responsive. Bubbles in particular is a very "social" and friendly betta. However about 2 days ago I noticed a slight change in his personality. Although he has his appetite and still swims up to greet me and follows my finger around, most of the time I see him lying on the bottom on his bowl. I just noticed a few moments ago, the very end tips of his tail are bright red. He's never had the full flared fins that Wiggy has, but now they look very thin and clamped together at the ends. His fins don't have the same movement they usually do. I tried to get a decent picture of what I'm talking about but it's difficult to capture.
Does that sound like fin rot or possibly something else? I'm going away in 2 days and won't be home until Sunday. I'd like to start some kind of treatment and have my neighbor continue while I'm away. Thanks everyone!
