i just did a 3.5g water change for my 5g divided tank. thats 2 betta and 1 nerite. the fish went in glasses while the nerite stayed in the tank. the VT caudal was healing with good rays but new webbing. after the vt went back in his caudal was ragged and bloody. should i wait a day to put him in the 1g QT or should i leave him in the 5g? in the past i put him in AQ salt for 7 days and he got better with that. i cant use salt in the 5g, live plants are present.


after

You don't want to put him in salt for too long. Maybe wait a while and see if they begin to heal on their own. If not, yeah restart the salt.

i'll try to leave him in the 5g for 2 days if possible given all goes well.

im just surprised that such damage can occur so fast ie 40 minutes. he was healing well until i did the WC.

Haha! And I thought my betta's bubble nest was big!

I have a question. If pellets fall to the bottom of the aquarium, the betta won't eat them, right?

I'll answer this one instead... the majority of bettas eat only floating pellets. Their upturned mouth have evolved in such a way that they can catch prey well from the surface of the water. But there are also those odd balls who only eat off the bottom.

You will have to monitor your betta and see what his particular eating habit are :)

Thanks! It's just kind of strange. He eats the stuff off the top, but the pellets that fell to the floor have mysteriously disappeared....

Is there any way to lower my ph without buying yet another product? I just got a reading of 7.6 and the high ph was actually lower (yes, i did it right) - lol! And, is this really an issue? He seems fine, it's my plants that are turning weird colors from what I think is probably too much alkalinity in the water among other things.

Wow kj, that's the second avatar i've seen on here that bears a striking resemblance to my betta - Too cool
