I bought a crowntail in poor condition. Someone mentioned he has Ich. He also has this "lent" at the end of his fin spikes. I just want him to get healthy and get happy. How can I do this without spending too much money? Also, my other betta, Horatio, is in a one gallon tank with a filter. How often should I change his water? (I changed it yesterday).
