Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? White Patch on gills(chin)
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? No
When did you start noticing the symptoms
? This morning when I did a water change(possible could have been I would say 2 days ago though, I look close at him a lot but it was hard to spot)
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Yes, conservitive treatment this morning.(stress coat and salt)
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Just fin bitting
How old is your fish (approximately)? (with us about 2 months)
My main question is with a 10 gallon tank is 100% daily water change as described in the disease guide on here needed, or is 50% daily or once every other day acceptible?
Also does a fungal infection + his fin bitting put him at increased risk for anything?
Oh sorry I couldn't get a picture it is really hard to get him to pose plus (I barely could notice it. I was only certian by comparing it to old pictures of him.)
Thank you for all advice.
