Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed?
One of my smaller Betta is Chloe. Yesterday there was a dandilion looking growth on the bottom of her where she takes a poop. Also one of my other female bettas nipped her tail a bit. when i transferred her to the hospital bowl containing aquarium salt and betta fix. The white growth bleed out and became smaller a bit. My other female Courtney was nipped also and shes been stressed for a while and she doedn't swim as much or flare but she does eat. Now my goldfish Mcrob has red tiny dotd on his skin/scales and his left eye seems to be pooping out a little bit. Also he opens his mouth as if he was breating rapidly and is a bit less active them my other goldfish. And My male betta Fin has fin rot because his fins are curled up and breaking off.Also if you look at him from the bottom you can see a piece of something hanging from his gill area and it looks kinda open. Last my other female betta Tia has something white on her gill area.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed
My goldfish McRob and Courtney my betta are less active.
When did you start noticing the symptoms?
chloe inoticed around about 2 days ago,Fin already had it and mc.rob a few days also and courtney a few days ago.My 3 dead fish, denrek never acted normal ever since i got him he stayed in the corner of the surface, never ate and wasnt very active. Kim my betta died because she was consumed by the white cotton like disease. and she swam with her body at an angle [Head down with tail up] and tamera my other betta died a few hours ago with a red spot by her tail that looked internal and red dots on her swimming fin and white dots on her tail fin that both had a piece missing.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how?
With Aquarium salt, fungus cure, also have a bottle of liquid super ick cure. just incase !
Right now i have 2 female betta and 4 gold fish in the ten gallon tank being treated with fungus cure and i have my health male murick in the 2.5 gallon by him self with aqarium salt as a preventative and chloe and fin in seperate bowls with aqarium salt and fungus cure .....
Does your fish have any history of being ill?
No they all seem fine when i got them except for fin who had fin rot and the problem with his gills when i got him...
How old is your fish (approximately)?
i have no idea but i do know that chloe is a baby only about and inch and courtney is and adult she looks fully grown lastly tia she is in between cgloe and courtney... the gold fish are all about the same age and are not that much bigger then the my make bettas fin and murick i have no idea about I've had all of the no more then a week and a half...
hope this helps you guys a little more so that you can try and help me
also i forgot to mention that i have a gold mystery snail who ive move to a seperate bowl since i started adding salt to the ten galon... Also i had a live plant (green hedge) in my tank which i opted to trow away once the fish started geting sick, i did this because i read that live plant bring fungus in the tank!!!!
In closing i do not have the money or space for a 40 gallon tank so i think the goldfish may have to go......
