My favorite betta is sick, please help me! I'm trying to determine whether the culprit is most likely bacterial, parasitic, or fungal so if I have to resort to meds I choose correctly and don't waste time. And there are a lot of variables to sort thru.
This is a long story, and I can provide details, but the short question is this:
Ragged fins (not cottony, in fact at first I thought he was tail-biting but it's all over now) and 1 cloudy, very slightly swollen eye.
Behavior is normal, eating is normal.
Multiple things (bacteria, fungus, parasite) can cause either one of these symptoms from what I can find... But the 2 together- is it more likely to be one particular organism since they are occuring together?
Im trying to get people's thoughts in case I need to resort to a medication, I need to know which one to target-
