I have blue betta I have two concerns a red stripe showed up on his low fin today and he seems a little grayer in color on his upper body. I an due for a 50% water change which I was going to do in the morning. I have 5 gallon unfiltered tank. I have filter but I am waiting for a sponge in the mail.
The only recent change I made was adding this bonsai tree:
And I added a glass top to the aquarium. I still had the tank covered previously though.
His tank temp is 84 degrees
He is a very, very active fish. He races back and forth in his tank, follows my finger and come to the front of the tank whenever I enter the room.
He has a huge bubble nest built in the tank.
My water PH is 7.2 coming out of the faucet I just checked and it's about 6.6 right now
I don't have a nitrate test-If you know where to buy one let me know I've been looking
Ammonia is 0 ppm
