One of my Bettas, Pepper, has been on a salt treatment (AQ salt) for about 3 days now. He just got off one last week due to a minor ick problem that I wanted to get rid of ASAP.
I believe his slim coat is coming off him because I see these clear, white, mucus-y looking thing but then their off him like an hour later. It appears fast. I had this issue with the first salt treatment and someone was telling me it was his slim coat.
I forgot to mention this current salt treatment is for his chewed tail (he did it himself) and I didn't want secondary infection.
My question is should I take him off the AQ treatment now instead of waiting a week? His tail is looking pretty good but I wasn't sure. He's on 1/2teaspoon/1gal because I didn't want to over do it on him because nothing's that major yet. I would like his slime coat to come back so is 3 days enough to make sure there is no secondary infection? He is in a 1gal temporary bin and the water is changed and treated every night. Water temp is 76*F.
