Well not long ago my poor VT Thai got 2 fungus spots on him.
I changed his water and put in aquarium salt, his temperature was already in the 80s...but it didn't go away. I did test his water, there is no filter but some plants and I'm doing daily water changes (obviously something must have gone wrong, I must not have been doing enough...:/ ).
So all I needed to test for was ammonia and PH.
I admit I did not test the ammonia right away, I just did a large water change and started doing more frequent ones.
I did skip out on a water change or two before, but not without changing a little bit of it.
Anyway, It did not go away and I saw white rings on both eyes.
I got Jungle Fungus clear and tested the water (Ammonia 0 and PH was a little off because of the Seachem Flourish Excel for the plants, I accidently added a bit too much, either that or it was the coconut I put in there). Before I bought the medication, I put him in a quarantine vase siting in his permanent home, with a tiny amount of aquarium salt and daily water changes. When I bought the Jungle Fungus Clear, I dissolved the right amount into a 2 gallon quarantine container, and after adding the conditioner I put him in, then took the vase (the vase is the only thing that fits in his home, I need to re clean his whole home out) and scooped him back into it along with the medication.
So he is sitting in his vase, in his permanent home to keep a warm temperature, with the medication. Today I noticed the fungus dissapearing!!!
This whole time he has not stopped bouncing around eagerly for food, but he hasn't been active ALL the time like normal.
He must be a very happy betta. Which makes me feel worse about my little probelm of not keeping up the water changes as normal...
I love all of my fish, and I say equally, I don't treat one better than the other (except pampering Thai a little bit more), but he is my favorite, he is the first betta I've ever had.
All of them have their own place with me!
The directions for using this I need help!!!
As I said before i'm keeping him with the medication in the (I am not using aquarium salt or anything else with it) vase.
He has room to swim and look at his surroundings, of course not as much. If I need to move him to something bigger let me know!
It says after four days, change 25 percent and a second dose may be added.
How do I do this with him in a vase?!
I may have mest up a little here on planning this out.
I'm going to check the water he's in and make sure the ammonia is not up.
BUT in a small container, I need to do daily water changes.
Do I need to continue changing the water and readding this medication?
I added the medication yesterday.
Thank you for reading this long post.
I ordered Indian Almond Leaves that should get here sometime this week.
