Just gave old man Tian-Tian 100% water change, but only filled the tank halfway. I discovered his water was FREEZING so I put his heater in (after not needing it all summer, lol!).

He's doing a little better, but he's still very lethargic and swimming at the bottom a lot. I might end up calling him Anchor, by his actions, haha.
.... Anchor is gonna be the name of my next Betta. It has been decided. :)

AUGH.

Finally took a flashlight to him; the ich now looks like clear, white fuzz. Nothing I'm doing seems to be helping at all!!

AUGH, I say.

Ugh, come on Tian Tian.
Yeah if it looks fuzzy I would start a treatment of JFE. He might be a little stressed from all the meds too. Hmm.

Well, I'm leaving tonight to my hometown; I'll be back Saturday night to take care of him. My roomie will be here, but I think if I fast him (he'll be missing all of 3 meals, really).

I'll treat him with JFE when I get back.

He greeted me when I got back from class just now, but quickly went back to huddling on the bottom of the tank.

:( It makes me so sad to see him like this!

At least he's still active and greeting you. I think he'll be fine. I think he just got overly stressed from the move and because he's not feeling well.

I think you're right, Vikki. I'll keep an eye on him.

Thanks, everyone. :)

For an old man, Tian-Tian sure loves to flare and chase my finger a lot. :)

Looks like there might be hope, after all.

He must be feeling better to chase your finger and flare.
