So, about two days ago, poor Murphy (g/f's betta) got wedged behind the filter a second time. After getting him free of it, he had some scales missing on the top of his ehad. no biggie, add some aq salt to help him out. Should be good. His fins were a bit raggedy from his first encounter with the filter, but didn't think anything of it because they were healing. Check on him today and half of his tail fin is gone, only a few "rays" are left. I have never seen fin rot move this fast. It's literally like someone cut the webbing from his fin and left the rays. His lower fin seems to be starting to do the same thing. Is it too late to save him? I plan on snagging my spare macquarium (the one that doesn't leak) tomorrow and basically making a quickie QT tank to treat him. But I'm not sure what to even treat him with.
He's a steel blue VT I got from petco about 2 months ago. Water temp is fine, params check out fine. He eats 3-4 pellets a day no problem. He's plenty active too.
I'm at a bit of a loss. Like I said, never seen fin rot move this fast. Will post pics tomorrow when I grab the camera from my place.
