So, I just acquired a betta named Astro from a family who's moving out of state. I need to find him a home, as I can only take care of him temporarily.
Anyway, when I saw him I immediately noticed a white ring around one of his eyes. Before I could ask about it (thankfully) the previous owner explained that he had gotten popeye and that she had been treating it for some time. The eye is no longer sticking out of the socket, but I would like to follow up with her treatment. She gave me a bottle of Melafix. It seems to be working so far, I just wanted to make sure this is the right medication.
I'm so surprised, he's got a very different personality than my betta (Freedy). He's very chill and he seems to almost like people around him.
Also, if anyone's willing to take an old, sorta-beat-up betta with a sweet personality, feel free to message me with what state you're in. I'd like to avoid shipping him if possible.
