my crowntail betta has an inflamed gill. the gill cover looks as if it's peeling back and i have no idea whats wrong with him :(. it also looks like he has black spots developing on both of his gill covers, however im not sure if they were there when i got him (ive only had him for a couple of weeks)
He is unfortunately only in a 1.5L tank (im trying to save up for a nicer one dw)
Ph levels are a little high.
nitriate levels dont get above 0.05ppm
i do regular water changes every other day
temp is about 68-75 in a day
he has been swimming around as usual and eating his food like a pig. he gets 2 small feeds a day of betta pellet food
ive been putting in a bit of melafix and aquarium salts into his tank but i dont think its doing anything :(
please if anyone could help i would be ever so grateful i dont want him to die, ive become so fond of him.
please help my Gilburt.
p.s this is my first post/ time being on this site so if its in the wrong place im sorry
edit: i think he may also be a bit bloated, he seems bigger then before :(
