Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed?
ive been having some fin problems in the last two weeks (ever since i put that stupid gravel in... but i took it out) and it seemed like yesterday everything was cleared up (no holes, tears, none) but this morning i saw some deterioration or rotting on the top of his dorsal fin. i had to go to school but immediately when i got home i changed 50% of his water. Now tonight i saw that the tip of his dorsal fin is changing color. its a white, light blue, grey color. The rot or whatever hasnt gone away, but this i knew wouldn't heal in such a short amount of time.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed?none. hes still a happy fish! :)
