Hi,

I think my Beta Franklin may be unwell. His tail has a lumpy bit right in the middle, I am not sure if this is normal/will hurt him. I have had him over a year. He has a little heater and is in 4L or over a gallon of water, I use water conditioner and have a store bought fin medication.

Any ideas?

I have attached a pic.

Oh dear poor thing. That looks like severe tail rot turning into body rot. Likely caused by poor water conditions (not changing the water enough and keeping in too small a tank).

Do a 100% water change daily, and you will likely need a very strong antibiotic if you want to try to save him. It looks like he could certainly die from his condition.

I am not an expert on which antibiotic to choose, but my best guess would be using both Kanaplex plus Nitrofurazone. Or perhaps Tetracycline?
