    Okay a little backstory here, I purchased by betta few weeks ago and his health seems to be deteriorating. I tried introducing some tank mates to his 2.3 gallon imagitarium tank but he did not get along with the snail so I had to stick to oto cats. I think one of the oto cats gave him ich as he...
