Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? (see pictures. Sorry about the picture size. I cropped it in Photobucket, but for some reason they're still showing up huge.)
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Very little. He's still very active. He chases his reflection and eats enthusiastically. He won't eat Blood worms though. :( He did stop blowing bubble nests.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? From Day One.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? First I tried AQ salt, then I tried AQ salt + betta revive, then I tried Melafix.
He doesn't have any of the fuzzy growth I've seen with fin rot in the past. I'm not sure what meds to try now. :(
