I've had my betta "Swimy" in the hospital tank for about 2 weeks, the reason being is that i noticed his tail fin was ragged like he had bit it off or it had gotten caught in the filter.
The first week of treatment all i had at the time was aquarium salt so i added small amounts of it and changed the water untill i could get proper medication, he has been treated with Melafix for the last week, his tail fin grew back a little and looked better and it didnt have a white edge to it anymore, it was his natural color.
I was planning to introduce him back into his home when i noticed a little split in between the rays, i dont know what this could have come from because the only thing in the tank he could have caught his tail on is the light sprinkling of ammonia absorbing gravel on the bottom.
Should i continue to treat him with the Melafix? or should i give him a little break with just salt and frequent water changes?
Thanks for any advice :)
