King should go back into the .5 gallon then if the goldfish is infected O.O
And Cichlids are no good with Betta's if they aren't Rams or Apisto's (which can still be very aggressive). If you want to keep him warm, you can clip the .5 gallon tank to the bigger tank to keep him warm but to keep him out of the parasite infected tank but also to not infect Anon.
Two infected Betta's is harder to care for than one! Any new updates on the black spots?
So my mom told me to stop worrying so much cuz the more I worry the worse it would become so I just put the two of them in the divided tank.
I also bought some Epsom salt in case of any emergencies.
King's spots are still there and I still have no idea what they are, but his head has seemed to turn darker and the spots blending in with the head color.
Plus I'm suspecting something else-- Maybe King has Marbling genes??
Here are some pics I took:
A week ago (Tuesday)
It may just be a lighting problem? But he is starting to become redder around the Anal/ Caudal Fins... and his body is darker than when I 1st bought him... In any case, he's becoming darker all over (including his head which is blackening/greyening /indigo-ening)
My mom was the 1st to notice it, I thought it was just the lighting problem but...
Edit: I just went downstairs to look at him again, and notice that the areas which used to be white, now have a tint of light blue. kinda like the blue is "spreading" from his body/fins :P
