I posted here month or so ago regarding my sick little buddy.... Well two months on and he's still sick
My thoughts are now is he's severely constipated.
He's been moved a week ago into a small hospital tank (15lt half full so he doesn't haveto work so hard to breathe), tank is heated and stable at 22°c, no substrate (so I can monitor his poop) and only two fake small plants for him to rest on/in.
He's a crown tail blue, approximately 1.5yrs old (roughly).
I usually feed him marine master betta food, twice daily.
Since he's been hospitalised I've stopped feeding him.
In his natural tank, I do 100% water changes once /week.
In the hospital tank I have been doing 75-100% changes daily.
Hospital tank has been treated with epsom salts and betta conditioner every day.
So... He's not well, and I'm after advice as to what to try next!
He hasn't pooped for the entire time he's been hospitalised, gets bursts of energy, then just sinks to the bottom and either sits upright or lays down.
When he swims, it's like he's tail heavy.. Working very hard to stay afloat. My first thought was swim bladder, but the lack of poop is worrying.
So..... Now what do I do?????
