I am convinced my Betta, Neptune, has columnaris, He has a large graying spot now under his mouth and his fins get ragged. I decided to try to feed him with Kanaplex and focus in pellets moisted with GarlicGuard. (1 dosette of Kanaplex and 5 of Focus for about 40 pellets).
1) HOW MANY DAYS should I feed Neptune with these medicated pellets?
2) I also add Paraguard in the water (plan to do it for one week).
3) I am buying Furan 2 to mix with Kanaplex in the tank if in one week my little one does not improve.
4) Do you think this is a good way to try to cure Columnaris? How long should it take to be solved?
PS: the water has 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 5 nitrates and PH about 6.8 (which is perfect for bettas). However, the temperature was too high at 80 Fahrenheit(my mistake I thought first he had ich) and after three changes of water,is now back to 75-76 degrees, which should help. I am reluctant to add salt because it is not well tolerated by betta (and I have a few plants, but this is less important).
Awaiting your reply, Sylvie
