I have a male halfmoon (the guy in my avatar) that i've had since February this year. He's been staying in a 2.5 BettaBow with silk plants living a happy life, he always came up to see me and danced for me, he never flared his gills, just his fins to show me how pretty he was. Last month he swam through the bottom of the plants where the plastic stems are and tore his fins all up. I kept him in there for about a week using 10 drops of BettaFix a day and his tail got worse so I took him out and placed him in a small goldfish bowl. One of the little cheap ones you can get at WalMart for like $1.
I've kept him in there since I took him out a month ago. I change his water every other day and put 10 drops of BettaFix everyday. His tail started to look a little better then it stopped healing altogether. The ridges on his tail turned black like the had scabbed over. I changed his medications and put him on Maracyn 2 for 1 week thinking maybe he had finrot but that didn't help either. So I let him sit in clean water in a MiniBow (already running for about 2 weeks, was housing a mossball until I was sure where I wanted to put it).
I changed his medication again to Hakari Betta Revive and placed him back in the goldfish bowl. He was on this medication for maybe a week (i've had him use it a few times before) but on Friday he was at the top of his bowl and wasn't moving much at all and very pail. He's normally a cherry red color but that day he was ghostly, i could see through his fins and his body was a pail yellow. And he didn't want to eat either. I took him out and put him in a bigger container which is actually a small storage bucket and put warmer water in along with some stress coat+ and a in-water thermometer so i could make sure his water wasn't too cold.
He spent all of Friday and part of Saturday not moving much just laying either at the bottom of the container or sitting ontop the thermometer so he was close to the top of the water. Saturday I took a cup of water out (the size of the PetSmart/Walmart betta cups) and replaced it with some warmer water and more stress coat+. He got more colour back to him but not much, he just turned orange.
So today and part of yesterday he hasn't done much but sit around fanned out, he swims when i go to poke him, but other then that he just likes to sit on the thermometer. He still hasn't eaten and still doesn't acknowledge that I'm there.
He's still that orange colour and I can tell he's not feeling too great, but he is better then he was on Friday. He's not bloated, his tail is still jacked up even after a month of meds and now this has happened. He isn't acting depressed, I even gave him a small pile of rocks and a Betta Log to hang out with if he wanted to.
I don't know what else I can do for him, he has no medications in his container just the Stress Coat+.
Any ideas what else I can do for him? It almost acts like I overmedicated him or something, but I only put one drop of the Betta Revive in each day and change the water every other day.
