I am updating this thread with more details by request. I have had betta for almost 10 days. He was in the 10 gallon for a day but because the pH was 8.2 and very high for him, he didn't do well and showed fuzzies at the tips of his crown tail. I decided to put him in his betta bowl and have been treating with 1tsp per gallon of aquarium salt. He has been doing fine and active and eating this whole time. I stopped the aquarium salt 3 days ago because i thought he was fine. Yesterday I noticed there was a brown patch on both sides of his body (no salt in tank). I changed the water 100% again and put more salt in.Today I woke up and it was full blown cottony like material. I went to the pet store and got a product called fungus rid by Kordon. He looked really bad this afternoon and early evening. The cotton stuff was coming out of his gills this time. However like I previously posted it seems a lot of the stuff has fallen off. Including the stuff from his gills. Does this mean he is getting better? Should I still use the salt along its the medication? I also unplugged the heater today, I am wondering if the colder water helped some too. Normally he has 80 degrees. He was lethargic this afternoon, just sitting at the top perched on his plant. This evening he seems to be swimming around. Not darting but slowly swimming around rather than just sitting there. It's definitely an improvement over earlier today. Also he is still not eating :/
