I have a couple of questions that I think may all be related so I will ask them all here.
I have a 10 gallon with one king betta and ADF. Filter yes, heater yes. I change about 33 percent of water once a week and put Prime in it. About two weeks ago I did 100% water change because I had algae and had to turn the filter off for a few days because I thought I had a leak in tank.
1. Since adding the ADF about 2 months ago, I am having algae issues. In fact, I just changed 100 percent of water can cleaned a lot in there to try to get rid of it. Is the algae caused by having the ADF in there? Basically my castle has all this brown on it as well as some of my silk plants. How should I address the algae?
2. First my king had at first a pin sized hole in his back fin, now it is a rip. Could that be the start of fin rot? He also has some white dots on his side. Almost like little bump- maybe six little tiny pin sized ones. I would normally throw salt in there but now that I have the ADF in there, I can't right? Do I need to do some salt baths for him? I also have Melafix on hand but I am thinking not to do anything with that until I try the salt. He is eating and moving around like normal.
Any feedback, ideas on this are appreciated..
