I have a few questions regarding fin rot. I believe my betta has it. I came in this morning (I wasn't in my office yesterday) and his fins are frayed (kind of dark and light around the frayed area). He also has a bit of discoloration on the side of his body. Otherwise he looks and acts like any other day. He ate this morning so seems to have good appetite.
I have something at home in case something like this came up. I believe it's bettafix? I forget. I might stop by petco just in case. Any medications that you recommend? I'm going to take him home to nurse him for the next 5 days or so...I'm going out of the country for five days next Friday. Terrible timing!
While he's being treated, I'm guessing I can feed him like usual, right? I will put him in a small bowl at home.
When he is healed and well, do you recommend that I change the water completely in his 3 gallon tank before I put him back? Just to give you some background info, he's in a 3 gallon marineland eclipse 3 with filter and heater.
Not sure why this happened...except for that weird moldy buildup I keep seeing on the suction. I changed water and checked with the strip and the water seemed fine. I also had live plants keep dying on us (probably because it wasn't enough light) and maybe I should have cleaned it up better.
