I've had 2 bettas, female and male for months now. I bought another guy on the 2nd of jan. Had him in a 1 gallon for 2 days before I added him to my divided 10 gallon wit my Violet and Baltar. The night I added him to the 10 gallon started the downward spiral for him. The next morning he was covered in white cotton spots swimming on his side and couldn't come up for air. Long, sad story short, he died 3 days later (R.I.P. Spur) I did an Ick treatment before he died. And since he died in the 10gallon with my other 2 I drained and washed everything in the tank and the tank in very hot water.
Now my Violet has symptoms that differ from Spur's. Violet will not eat. My girl is a piggie. She would jump outta the water for the food. Doesn't even come see me. Not when I call her name like she used to. She has horribly clamped fins and just sits at the top of the water all day. She also has a clear/white stringy poop looking think hanging from her. After I did the cleaning of the tank after my Spur I added another Ick treatment and then added one again last night after a 25% water change as recommended on the package.
I noticed her acting strange when she would not eat 2 mornings ago and then later found her in her cave with her head popping out (she hasn't been in that thing since the first time she explored it) again very strange behavior for my girl.
please anyone who recognizes these symptoms please give me yer input on what may be wrong. She's still in the divided 10 gallon with Baltar who has had a decreased appetite. What do I do!?!
