I got another Betta on friday (so I have had him for a few days). He was already diseased when I bought him. He has (from what I can tell) White Fungus and Fin Rot, maybe ich.
My problem is. First, the meds do not seem to be working. In fact, the fungus appears to be spreading.
My other problem is what type of treatment should I do for his illnesses. I read that fin rot needs frequent water changes but fungus gets worse with water changes. I have no idea what to do.
Also, his fin rot has two different types, chunks of his fins are missing, but he also has what looks like bullet holes all over his fins aswell. Are they both fin rot or two different things?
I have been using Aquarium Salt for his fin rot and a med called 'ich attack' by Krodon which is supposed to treat ich and fungus.
Personality wise, he has not eaten since I got him. He never swims around unless he is jerking his body over the gravel (scratching I think). And he hides alot.
He is in a 1.5 gallon tank with a small filter. (For treatment I removed the filter cartridge). And I am using a heating pad for heat currently. His tank water is about 77-78 degrees.
Please help! I do not want him to die.
