Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? There are two red cuts on each of her sides - one on her gills, and one by her face. Other than that, she looks fine.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? It hasn't.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? When I was riding home, when I first got Kiwi, I noticed the cuts. I sort-of noticed them at the store, but I might be getting glasses so I thought my eyes were messing with me...
Have you started treating your fish? Yes.
If so, how? I give her a 1/4 of a teaspoon of Bettafix every day.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Not that I know of.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I have only had her for a few days, and I have no idea how long she has been at the petstore.
Please, I love Kiwi, and I don't want her to die! :(
