I wish I knew more about what i was doing....my daughters Betta was white now he is all yellow and cloudy looking and just sitting on the bottom of the tank it is a new set=up only a few days or maybe almost a week....i did a complete water change and added aquarium salt and aquarisol to it.....I hope i did the right thing
Fishy.... do you do salt baths for velvet?? shoot Im not even sure if that is what he has....she is at work and has called me every hour to check on him...im really worried we do not have a heater in this tank would heat help??? what kind of meds should we have on hand?
What is his water temp if you have a thermometer in there? It should be between 76-80,anything lower they will appear sluggish. You can do salt baths for that,I just used aquarisol though. Didnt seem to help much I am afraid,I ended up with dead fish. Ich and Velvet are nasty things that can come on fast and fatal. I hope thats not this guys case. There is a section on this forum for diseases,maybe take a look at that?
im not sure of the tempurature of the water .....if he makes it through the night i will stop and get a heater and a thermometer in the morning so I can better judge it....my poor daughter she really cares about her fish...wish there were more I could do......
its ok you have been a big help......Im off to pick her up from work now.....cross your fingers.....hopefully he will make it thru....if he does I think an even bigger tank is in order....maybe a 5 gallon....whatever it takes to make him happy
