I would, unfortunately every time I try to get a picture with the digital camera, it comes out blurry and unrecognizable. Mom had the same problem before moving Lenny and Prince into a glass tank, so we think it has something to do with the acrylic.
Okay, we went shopping and hit paydirt. After Bianco grew the salt-like coating I'd read about in a few posts here, I figured it might be fungus instead, so we got some Jungle Fungus Clear and some Bettafix, which the (extremely helpful and sweet) guy at PetsMart suggested.
So today we did a complete water change, added in aquarium salts, betta water conditioner, some aquarisol (just in case) and a heater and thermometer before putting Bianco back in his tank. It's been a few hours now, and while Bianco still looks aweful, he's acting like his old self again. With each hour, he seems to gain back more energy. He no longer rests on the bottom, darting up to the surface for air every few seconds. He's started to swim around like he used to.
I'm hoping his scales and fins clear up, but for the first day of treatment, he seems to be responding well. We're keeping the fungus clear tabs for a just in case.
We've decided to hold off on the 10-gal setup, firstly because we want to try to get Bianco healthy before introducing him to a new tank to avoid contamination, and secondly because today we got a new, unexpected, but certainly welcome addition to the family when my mom rescued an abandoned and starving Bearded Dragon female I've been calling Isis.
So, to recap, this week-end we have to:
Continue to medicate, monitor and help Bianco get better
Fatten-up and heal an emaciated Bearded Dragon
Care for all of our other, healthy pets
Prepare for mom's big party this Saturday
Earn a paycheck
Yeah, we're totally not driving ourselves to insanity.
