Well, Tian-Tian's ich came back, but I'm more concerned about the fungus. It just CLINGS to his head and drifts with him as he lazily swims along. I can't stand it! This was the same problem I had when I first brought him home last month. He's been doing GREAT since then... until now.
Name of Betta:
Green/blue/black/red male veil tail Betta
Unknown (I'd guess 7 months...?)
2.5 gal. (an upgrade from his 1.5!)
Fake or live plants:
Fake, just one grassy-looking plant and silk, pink flowers, either plant on either side.
Current water temperature:
70 degrees F. (I'm going to get a heater to remedy this today; I KNOW that's far too cold for him!)
Current fish behavior:
Playing with his reflection in the decorative marble stones on top of the gravel, hanging out at the top of the tank, resting at the bottom of the tank, swimming the length of the tank rapidly then stopping
Betta Revive (Product description: http://uskoi.com/betta_revive.htm
), Aquarium Salt, sunlight, 50% water change
I JUST moved him to a brand-new 2.5 gallon tank last night and I woke up to seeing him with the fungus/ich on his head this morning. I don't have a filter or heater, yet (but I will be getting one tonight... probably a Whisper filter). The new tank was cycled properly and water conditioner applied (BEFORE he was put in the new tank).
I put some aquarium salts in and added the Betta Revive this morning. I'm in the process of doing a water change right now, just to be on the safe side of things...
I gave him 100% water change yesterday in his old tank (due to a faulty filter not working properly). I don't know if that has anything to do with it... could it be that whatever parasites/bacteria that had been hiding in his old tank came when I put his old plants in his new tank?
Aside from getting the heater, is there anything else I can do?
