Yesterday my 1+ year old blue male betta's eye popped out and got very lethargic. His color is not quite normal either (more gray and black spots) and he's a bit red and white around the popped eye/gill area. I noticed his fins haven't been as healthy looking the past couple weeks but has been fine besides that. Based on the disease descriptions post I think he might have dropsy. He did not eat yesterday, but today he came up to the surface and ate 3 pellets.
He's in a 3 gallon, filtered, heated tank. He eats Hikari Betta Bio-Gold Baby Pellets mostly, as well as freeze dried blood worms and brine shrimp.
I didn't find the exact medicines recommended in the link, but here's what I'm doing:
Aquarium Solutions Betta Revive (Just put that in)
API Aquarium Salt (also just put that in)
Daily water changes
I also bought but haven't tried yet:
Do I also put in the Tetra AquaSafe Water Conditioner with each water change and treatment?
Should I remove the activated carbon filter with the Betta Revive? The Melafix bottle says to remove it for that medicine.
Any other suggestions/ideas?
