I really tried so hard!!
okay, a few weeks ago I bought a pretty crowntail missing a bit of his tail. You could still see his spikes.
He had finrot.
I have a 10 gallon awating to be set up so until then I bought a 2.5 gallon tank for finrot fish.
Tank: 2.5 gallon
Temp: 76-78 (heater yes)
Only betta in the tank, no tank mates
& I know my sink water is fine because I've had my halfmoon plakat for months. I use the same water and prime for both of them. I just dont get it.
I did DAILY 100% water changes for the 1st week. After that, daily 70% percent, so I didnt have to take him out.
I added 1 tsp per gallon of salt. I turned off the filter. I added captatpa leaves. I tried 'bettafix'. I feed him omega one pellets x4 a day, occasional freezed dried blood worm.
I use prime with my water, and API AQ salt.
I did a 100% water change yesterday, woke up this morning, and his tail is even SHORTER! its like why??? the tips had clear white like growth and were getting bigger, then it just disappears, but not his whole tail, just the middle. Can crown tails tail bite?
Im just thinking of letting the finrot stuff go, just go to usual water changes and stop obessing over it. Cause his tail is so short he looks like a plakat now. But the strange thing is, it doesn't look like fin rot. It looks like it was ripped. He only has silk plants in his tank, just one at that. And a little stone bridge. Should I take out all his decorations?
