My betta, Homage (halfmoon male) has become pretty ill =/
I believe it to be a fungal infection, as he has white film all over his body. He refuses to eat, he isn't active... We're moving him from the tank he's in to a tank with heater and filter this afternoon, but I need to find him the correct treatment, any suggestions? I greatly appreciate it.
