Hello. I've been here before and asked about my betta with an unusual bulge on the side of his body. We concluded that he has a tumor and the best I can do is to keep taking good care of him. Other than that, there wasn't much I could do.
I'm surprised that he lasted as long as he did, because he's had that tumor for several months. I was starting to think he'll be fine. Then he got very skinny and his fins were clamped. This lasted a few months as well.
I just looked at him and noticed that his scales are standing up. I didn't notice it yesterday or today but I didn't turn the light on so maybe I missed it. I'm guessing it's getting close to the end. What should I do now? He's in a 3 gallon tank. Should I move him to a smaller container so he can get to the surface a little easier? Any advice will help. He's my first betta :(
