The other day I made a post asking for some advice, got no response, so I decided to try bettafix. This is the 3rd day of bettafix, on the second day my fish Cleo seemed to be improving (or at least I though so) he was swimming around and not laying at the bottom all day. This morning I woke up and went to see my fish and his caudal fin has a huuuge tear/hole in it and the hole looks like it is growing white mold! He also looks like he has mold on the side of his anal fin? Please help, bettafix must not be working, Should I qt. my fish to his Ĺ gallon tank and try to treat him in there, what should i try? Please, please help, Iím worried about my fishie.
