So I've had my Betta for about a month now. I have just noticed for a week now his pectoral fins have been completely torn and only resemble a C shape. I was without money until this past Friday so I wasn't able to get anything for him.
On Friday, I went out and I grabbed the BettaFix stuff so for 3 days now I have put in 1/2 teaspoon of it in his 3.5 gallon tank in hopes that will fix his pectoral fins. Yesterday, I went to an Aquarium store and the man told me to put in some Aquarium salt so I put in 1 3/4 teaspoon of that in, pretty sure it evaporated cause I don't see the crystals on the bottom of the tank.
I notice also that he's been staying at the top more than swimming around his tank which is 3.5 gallons. I had taken out his filter since pretty much a week of having him but today I decided to put it back in as I can't seem to figure out a proper schedule for cleaning his tank. I can't tell exactly if hes just playing around in the currant or if I should take it back out.
He's been swimming nose down as well. I thought I've seen a white spot on his body as well so i'm not sure if that's Ich or what.
Please help me save my fish!!! :)
