Ok so I have 3 tanks set up right now. A 20 gallon long with 8 female bettas and it's unfortunately uncycled. A 5 gallon with my one betta male and a million snails (my boy just laid another batch of eggs...oh those bladder snails...). And my third is a 2.5 gallon tank with my girl Maybelline who is completely clamped up and not doing well at all.
I'm going to assume that all tanks are infected since I didn't not think until I was told earlier that I would infact be under attack by velvet.
Now that I am pretty sure it is velvet I need to now know what to do. I've turned up my heater from 80-82 and will turn up the heat in an hour or tomorrow morning so as to not stress my girls in the 20 long out. I will also do my boy and Maybelline but I would like to make sure that I'm not going too fast.
I only have AQ and Epsom salt, Maracyn Two, and Para Guard on hand as fighters of this disease. I also have 2 syphons that were used and some water that got into my empty 20 tall tank. I need help in knowing how to respond to and deal with this because I lost one girl last night and I will not lose anymore!!
ALSO I just want to make sure this little specks couldn't possibly be caused from stuff coming off my sponge filters? or from dirt moving around in the tank?
Here are the videos I took:
Here are some pictures of my 20 long and the girls in there, also Maybelline.
This is how she looked like when I came home wednesday after being gone for a week to a wedding. My roommate fed everyone once but I think they got stressed because one of my girls had jumped and passed away so they rearranged themselves the week I was gone.
This is what my filter looks like:
And some of the things in my tank:
