I have had my Betta King since Jan. He never seemed to have any problems. About 2 weeks ago he started acting different, anyway he is on his 2nd day of a 10 day treatment. Well while trying to find out what was wrong with him, I realized I had been misinformed about many things. So I thought I would get his take (and my mindset) ready for him so that when he has recovered he has the best quality of life that I can give him.
Ok He is King, a veiltail.
His Tank : 3 gal cylinder
Filter: yes (it's new to his tank and he did not like it so when he started acting sick I took it out. It will be back in his tank before he is)
He also as a pump that just adds air (it came with the tank)
(Most important)How often do I do a 100% water change for the 3 gallon.
He eats pellets. I was feeding him 3-4 am, and then again pm. I think it may have been too much so I am cutting him down to 2am and 2 pm. I have been reading about blood worms. Are the dried ones ok?
How do I not stress him out? I have been bothering him alot lately because he has been sick and it freaked me out when he wouldn't move.
How many drops of stress coat should I use for the 3 gal? The directions is 1 tsp per 10 gal. Can I use it with every water change?
That is all I can think ok for now.
