So a little history...about 3 weeks ago, my female betta started acting lethargic. and got two grey spots, like her skin was peeling. she still ate. lives in a 5 gal tank, alone, cycled, with amm and nitrites at 0, and nitrate at 5ppm. i put my male betta in the tank beside her, and left it for one day by accident..now it's covered with paper between them. i think it's the cause for her sickness...anyways
she is now in full blown cotton mouth disease. or cotton body, a few more white patches have appeared, her mouth is getting worse, and today i just noticed her fins near her tail, have torn and become bloody..
her treatment a week ago, was 1.5 teaspoon of api salt, and fungus cure powder (api). i did about 2 treatments with the powder, and nothing changed. so i put back the carbon in her filter, and went about as normal. i'm waiting for furan2 in the mail, so i was gonna start that as soon as it got here. also, 2 days ago, i started feeding her jungle medicate fish food for anti bacteria. but today, she wont eat it (which is when i discovered new white spots along with the bloody fin...
what more should i do?? just start with the furan2 when it gets here? i dont think she had dropsy, but she is bloated, and a "tiny" bit of pinecone effect when i stare at her from the top...
pls ask any questions if i'm not clear... i need help..
