I just (as in less then an hour ago) got (rescued?) a betta from Wal-Mart. Poor guy was in about a cup and a half of water for god knows how long.
He appears to have a minor amount of fin rot and 1 spilt in his back fin. I was wondering if I should do anything to help him get healthy.
He has brand new, clean and dechlorinated water. A washed everything (tank, plants, filters, decoration, heater, gravel) in treated water before putting it in the tank. His tank is currently at 79 degrees and the heater is set to keep it at +/- 78 degrees. We set his sad cup in the water to temper it to the water temp of his new 5 gallon tank before letting him free in the tank to explore.
Should I do something to help the rot heal or just let him enjoy the new large clean tank and hope that fixes the problem?
Thanks for the help!
