Talking My boy is saved!!

Me and my family were away for 2 weeks and we left my moms friend in charge of Clint.

Bad mistake, because when he came back he was so close to body rot, he was at the top of his tank with 2 cloudy eyes. I thought it was all over for him. But, today i went to pecto, bought stress coat and melafix, and saved his life. he still has fin rot but now he is happily swimming around.

Does anyone have any similar stories??

Melafix is actually very harmful to the labyrinth organ (which is the organ bettas use to breathe).

I would remove it from your water immediately.

If he has close to body rot then you NEED to get actual medicine. I recommend Triple Sulfa. You should get this ASAP.
