Ahh. I currently have 4 female betta's in .75-1 gallon quarantine tanks that are about 79 degrees.
On Saturday I went to Petco and ended up taking home 2 new rescues. I thought they had ammonia burns near their gills, they were clamped and had stress stripes. One had a strange bump on her head and the other was pale, almost like she was covered in a thin layer of white.
After bringing them home they began to recover some. They had good appetites and eat twice a day. They unclamped their fins and now are swimming around seemingly happy.
I also have 2 other females in quarantine (My plan was for them to eventually go into a sorority tank in June) I have had them for about two weeks and they have been doing good too.
I did a 100% water change for all if them on Sunday but was careful to keep everything separate, or so I thought.(The two new rescues got AQ salt added) After the water change I placed their tanks next to each other so they could start getting used to each other too, which seemed to be gong well.
This morning when feeding I noticed that now all four of them have red (burns?) on their gills? I will post pictures soon. Is this a bacterial infection?
