We decided not to change the ph level. My fiance went to an aquarium store today and got a sample of our betta's aquarium water tested.
Ammonia: 0.5 (it should be 0)
Besides the ammonia the results are not too bad, however, our betta Tiepolo has been loosing another chunk of his tail over night
Therefore we took him out of his aquarium and put him into a one gallon bowl, in order to medicate him and to be able to make daily 100% water changes.
This is our plan:
1 week daily water changes (100%)
Each day a bit aquarium salt
Each dose one dose of MELAFIX medicine
We still DO NOT KNOW if it is tail biting or fin rot
today his tail looks so terrifying
, that we think it turned into TAIL ROT today (?)
Please look at the following two pics (one from yesterday and then one from today=worse tail) and let us know what you think:
Do you think MELAFIX will help?????
We do appreciate all input!
