my boyfriend and i got a bright red betta fish two weeks ago. he has been perfectly fine, swimming being active then two days ago i notice he was a little sluggish and not doing much. well yesterday (saturday) when i cam home from work it looked as though he had two white holes in his fin and his fin was starting to look like it was fin rot. well it also looks like he maybe have like two white dots on his head like say his forehead. i wanna get him all fixed up and treated, i just wanan make sure ihave the right medicine.
should i get something for fin rot or should i get maracyn and maracyn 2 or should i get like betta revive?
yes, i have a heater. yes i do have a filter but the current is too strong so i don't have it in/on anymore. gotta get a sponge to stick in there to slow it down. my tank is the mini bow 2.5gallon tank. i just changed the water last monday. could maybe the stress of changing his tank cause him to get sick?
answers ASAP would be wonderful. my boyfriend is gonna pick stuff up for him tomorrow before he comes to my house and i was just wondering what i should get.
oh and his fins are clamped together the past two day. and he's been swimming around a lot the past 10 minutes his water is around 82 degrees, 84. plus he's been hiding in his cave a lot the past two days.
