Hey guys, Pi is not doing well. she has had clamped fins since yesterday afternoon and isn't swimming around. as you may know, she is kind of *ahem* VERY sensitive. I am not sure what's wrong, please help!!
What size is your tank? Nearly 2 gallons- it is a Petco brand "kritter keeper"
What temperature is your tank? 72* F. (I am slowly acclimating her to her new heater- the temp used to be 64!! :/ I've been raising it one degree an hour no more than 5 hours a day.
Does your tank have a filter? No.
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No.
Is your tank heated? Yes.
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? None. however, her tank is next to my Betta Merlin's tank.
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Omega one Betta buffet pellets.
How often do you feed your betta fish? Two pellets, once a day in the morning.
How often do you perform a water change? Just started doing twice weekly.
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? one 100% and one 50%.
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Stress coat.
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters? Sorry, I have not tested the water. (Don't have a test kit)
Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? She has stress stripes on her face, her fins are clamped (even her pectorals!) and she stays in one place.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? All she does is stay in one place, floating at the top (not on her side) except when I drop a pellet in, then she goes after it.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Yesterday afternoon.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? I have not. (unless putting white paper on the outside of her tank is treating)
Does your fish have any history of being ill? She actually has some minor fin rot right now, I am treating it with stress coat (one Ml. per gallon of water) like Callistra told me to. Other than that, I have no idea.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I do not know. I got her on Christmas. (she already had fin rot when I got her) All I know is that she is an adult.
Thank you for your help.
