Hello,

I am very worried, I have had my betta for a couple months now, he is in a 29gal aquarium with 9 neon tetras and 2 mystery snails, the aquarium is filtered, heated and cycled, up until yesterday he seemed healthy and happy and his fins were very nice, he loved swimming a lot from side to side on the tank, he is a very aggressive eater and loves eating a lot, I test the water regularly and ammonia and nitrites are 0 and nitrates are about 10ppm. yesterday when I came from home and saw him he looked horrible. his fins were all destroyed, he wasn't swimming he just moved his side fins a little, he was pale and he was just like frozen and wouldn't eat, I panicked and immediately moved him to a 10 gallon tank I had, I put a heater but not a filter since I wanted to use medicine, so I moved a couple things from the 29 to the 10 gallon so it wouldn't be too empty I added some melafix following the instructions and also added some aquarium salt in case it was fin rot which i doubt, today I checked on him again and he looks worse, his fins look like they are dying, he is not eating, and he is not moving his body, he barely lots up and down, I don't know what to do, I don't know what could have caused such damage in less than 24 hours, how he could go from perfect and happy, so sick, and his color seems to be very pale from half his body down to a not such pale in the front part of his body, attached are some pictures of how he is now and an old picture but shows how he was before yesterday and the tank he was in. any advice you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.



Thank you.

I'm sorry, but I can't tell much from the photos. We need an photo of the entire 29 gallon or is that it above?. Can you lower the resolution?

Also, there is a sticky at the top of this section entitled: "PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING...." Filling that out would help a great deal. Even if you've answered the questions it really helps us to have a quick reference.

Thank you.
