No worries, glad we were able to catch it at all. I'll post new photos tomorrow!

After 3 days of treatment, minor progress from yesterday. Fin rot seems to have stopped now. Finding lots of stress coat/clearish film particles in the water. Eating well, flaring and running away when I try to take pictures, and seems to be behaving well in general. The blue is only slightly more pronounced from yesterday.

After 4 days of treatment, nothing terribly drastic. Still eating well (but decided not to pay attention to the bloodworms I got him ). Tomorrow is the last dose

To me his dorsal just seems "melted" if anything.

Last day of treatment, no noticeable changes from yesterday. He's still mostly pink in color and the bottom half of his front is a pale whitish color. Is it normal for fish not to be completely cured after the course of the medication?

I have enough Maracyn left for another dosage, and I also have the Jungle fungus clear fizz tabs now also. What should be the course of action at this point?

Have you seen any poop? What color is it?

Sometimes it takes more than just a round of medication to get a betta fully better, depending on the situation.

I saw some yesterday and it looked normal (about color of the pellets). Didn't notice any today, though I wasn't looking for it.

The package does say I can repeat it once if needed, but I'm not sure if that would improve his illness or not...

He looks pretty darn bloated to me, What do you think Sena?

So he's been on meds a week?
