I mostly need a diagnosis if it actually is anything, but I've noticed some regrowth.
What size is your tank? QT half gallon
What temperature is your tank? 75 degrees F (chilly I know, my friend's giving me her heater in about 2 weeks)
Does your tank have a filter? No
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No
Is your tank heated? No
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? used to live with 2 cories
What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Betta pellets by Aqua culture, and Hikari freeze dried blood worms
How often do you feed your betta fish? 2 pellets in the morning, occasionally a worm (he's fat right now and dieting)
How often do you perform a water change? Every day
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 100%
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Jungle Start Right and a teaspoon of aquarium salt (per gallon)
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?
Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Small tear in dorsal fin, some dark discoloration and regrowth
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? He's a bit depressed, but I think that's because he's in quarantine
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Last week
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? 1 teaspoon of aquarium salt/gallon and daily water changes
Does your fish have any history of being ill? He's just gluttonous
How old is your fish (approximately)? I got him early March
The red circles are possible fin rot, I drew an arrow to the tear in his dorsal but I couldn't get it to show in any of the photos I took. The blew circle is where I see regrowth colored a light blue.
Also, this is an evil question, but would he be ok in my 10 gallon cycled tank for aprox. 19 days w/o a cleaning? Right now I'm doing a 50% change every week. If not I'll try to get some one to clean it. However, my 'rents weren't very happy I got a fish :3
Thanks in advance for the help <3
