Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed?
His fins have turned more red and i can see that it is starting slightly on his body to turn red as well.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed?
A little slower, not as interested in food. Laying more in the plants instead of swimming against current.
When did you start noticing the symptoms?
Have you started treating your fish?
If so, how? I used bettafix for a week with no improvements. Then I started using Jungle Fungus clear tablets but it seemed to make it worse right away. I did a water change in 2 days because the Fungus Clear appeared to make him a lot worse.
Does your fish have any history of being ill?
If this is fin rot, then he has had it on and off since I got him. But his fins are turning more red quickly.
How old is your fish (approximately)?6 months
What should I do? I am just a college student and so I dont have much money to throw around in medications. I could do water changes more often, would that help? Should I try the jungle fungus clear again or not?
