I went to PetCo today not to buy a fish and left with one anyway (brings the count up to 10). Everyone knows me (and a friend of mine) as the Betta Girls, we go in a few times a week to check on their Bettas mostly and make sure they are being well taken care of.
Today they had some new ones in and I fell in love with the 2nd one I saw. He's a purple Halfmoon with clear/white fins (looks blueish in pics). He's got a white fungus bump on his side about the size of a scale, it looks cottony, not stringy. I was there yesterday and he wasn't there, so they just got him in today.
Currently I have him in a 1 gallon QT with an undergravel filter. I just gave him a little bit of Maracyn. According to my Fish Disease Guide i should also give him MarOxy as the main medication, is this true? It also says instead of Maracyn I can use Maracyn 2, Maracyn TC or Maracyn Plus.
I at the moment have Maracyn, Maracyn 2, Coppersafe and Maracide.. along with a few different Ick medications (Jungle and API and some other off brand). Tomorrow I plan on going to PetSmart and getting some MarOxy, i just wanted to get an opinion on what I should give him.
I also gave him a tiny bit of pre-mixed Aquarium Salt Water as well as some Stress Coat (which I always use).
He doesn't act sick or anything, he's pretty well normal aside from the white fuzzy bump.
