So Sebastian made the trip to school fine and was totally fine the first week here. During the weekend before last he went on a tail bitting spree and ate the rest of his dorsal fin that was remaining from his last nomming experience and the upper part of his tail. I could only start a salt treatment on the 18th because my friend had to use my tank for her more serious case of fin rot. Sebastian now has only 4 more days of treatment, and his dorsal is healling fine. However, his tail now has more rips and chunks missing than before. Could it be possible that he has fin rot even though I kept his water clean in his 2 gallon before I could start treatment? (Clean as in 2x 50% and 1x 100% water changes)
K so since I didn't get any replies I will try another question at the same time as bumping. The salt treatment is almost over, and I was wondering if there was any other things I could do to help speed the healing of his fins aside from water changes as they seem to not be working. He just keeps tearing up what has healed from his tail and now he has munched some more off.
yeh like anything else introduce it over time. Next waterchange prep the water the day before and soak a bag in it and then when you do the waterchange have the bag in the tank before releasing him and he will get use to it or hide in behind some plants so hes like "swimming swimming...OH HAI!"
If your Betta does not react good with green tea, don't add it in again, every Betta is different and some react differently with green tea. If you want to speed up healing, you can try Stress Coat, that works too and speeds up the regeneration of his fins.
