    Medication suggestions for my betta w swollen abdomen and no appetite

    He doesn’t appear to be pineconing. I’m sorry, I didn’t get a chance to take a pic from above. He does like to stay at the bottom of the tank, which makes it hard since his tank is a tall square instead of rectangular and short.

    Medication suggestions for my betta w swollen abdomen and no appetite

    Yes, they do appear to be lifted around the lump only. I heard with dropsy, fish don’t live long

    Medication suggestions for my betta w swollen abdomen and no appetite

    Hey friends! I feel like my betta, Ocean, is not getting better. I’ve had him since October 2018 and he started getting sick with what I thought was swim bladder about 2 months ago.

    Swim bladder in betta

    Thanks so much!!! I did the epsom salt bath last night and left him in there for 20 mins. How often do I do this? He looks the same today. I will stop by the pet store and buy the parasite meds.

    Swim bladder in betta

    Yes I am very interested. Please share your treatment plan and what to buy for the possible parasites. Is epsom salt available for purchase at a grocery store? Do I need to siphon the aquarium salt now?

    Swim bladder in betta

    HI friends. I’m almost out of hope for my betta and his health. He’s been suffering from swim bladder for a few weeks now and hasn’t eaten in almost 2. He is not eating peas and has a difficult time swimming up for air and stays resting on a plant right below the surface of the water. He is...

    Swim bladder or dropsy?

    Ok so he’s not eating the peas... he still looks the same. Also still struggling to swim, lays around the tank, and occasionally makes it to the top for air. I bought a new tank and have not had time to put the new stand together and set up the tank but I don’t want him to starve or die if I can...

    Swim bladder or dropsy?

    Right! He’s been fasting for some time now and I don’t think that’s working. Is it just a pea a day?
