I am quite certain now that my Betta has fin rot. All the symptoms fit. I have been doing some reading but am still not quite sure what to do in my circumstance.
I had my Betta in a 3 gallon tank up until today. I think the problem occurred because the tank had no filter,a live plant (which i bought without any research, so i think it was dying, polluting the water) and overfeeding (He used to eat heaps and then spit most of it out, is that normal?). However I was planning to get a new tank and thought I was getting it in a couple of days so I got a little slack. The days turned into two weeks when I finally put him into his new 60 gallon home today. The new tank has a full filtration system and I am picking up a heater tomorrow.
I know I can give him salt baths but i am not sure if that will be enough. Can you please give me some other advice on what I can do from here, or what i should do? Please keep in mind that my tank also has 4 neon tetras and 4 black neons. I'm only saying that because i don't want the medicine to kill them. Please help me.
Also he seemed very active when he first got into his new home but doesn't seem so much now. When he swims he seems to have trouble fighting the filters current, even though i don't think its very strong at all, so should i turn that down a bit? He seems to sit on the tank floor behind this plastic log a fair bit, is that normal? This is my first time keeping a Betta.
Sorry for the wall of text and thanks for taking the time,
