    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Thank you for the condolences and the advice. I just have a couple questions. What brands do you recommend for the cephalaxin? And is adding it to food the same process as medicating with kanaplex, metroplex, and focus? Also for the fungus cure, how is that applied to the fins, desolved in...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Thank you for your kindness and for your help, I was at least able to give her a fighting chance. She unfortunately didn't make it. I wish I reached out sooner, she might have had a better chance. I'll be cremating her tomorrow and if the gravel I ordered comes in, I'll be tearing her tank...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    She's not doing good. At all. Checking in on her, she was on her side and is barely breathing. I have her floating in a cup with the hospital tank water so she has better access to the surface. I don't see her lasting more than a few hours, and since I have to go to work I don't have the heart...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    I'll have to keep this treatment in mind if this happens again (hopefully not). I have new gravel coming in the mail for her so she'll get a full rescape. I just thought it odd that it blooms/explodes like this every water change. Right now she's still refusing food, soaked in garlic or not.

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Currently she is like this. Not that I expected her to bounce back right away, but she's refused garlic guard soaked worms and shrimp.

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    While she is recovering I am going to give her a new scape finally since her tank is kind of sad. Her tank right now has this film coating pretty much everything, and it appears every water change. Is this something I should be concerned about?

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    I have a 2.5/3 gallon I saved for a hospital tank that I just cleaned and filled. I'm waiting for the water to warm a bit more. I also have methylene blue, I just never thought of it as a anti bacterial and more of an anti fungal. I added 18 drops to 2.75 gallons instead of their recommendation...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Caught her in the front and definitely didn't see the gold dust. I have kanaplex and furan-2 for bacterial infections, as well as aquarium salt. Should I consider any of those for treatment?

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    I did a 25% water change and added the Prazi. She's very weak it seems. She stays at bottom and hides and has no interest in bloodworms. Could this be a bacterial infection?

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Prazi I also have, I'll try that tomorrow after her water change. I tried to get a picture of her but she likes to hide in the back at night lately. That being said, from what I could see, I didn't spot any of the gold dust. Part of me just wants to break the tank down completely and restart...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Good to know thank you! I've lowered the temperature, and gave the nitrate test another go with the super shaken bottles and it's between 0 and 5 nitrates. As I was getting the bottles prepped, I caught her flashing against her driftwood. Perhaps she has flukes or a parasite? When doing the...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Sorry I couldn't get them sooner, her light had turned off by the time I saw your reply. Also please disregard the heater's displayed temp in the back, it's actually 82, not 84. She's very shaky as she swims, and she also seems to swim in short bursts, like she's trying to get off something...

    5 Gallon Tank Fin rot and lathargic betta

    Hello! I have a koi betta girl that I've had since June, so about 4 months in a tank that has been cycled. My levels are 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and about 5 nitrate. The tank is a five gallon with a dwarf aquarium lily and some underdeveloped salvinia natans. It's filtered with a sponge filter and...

    5 Gallon Tank Accidentally crushed part of ramshorn's shell, help!

    He will be missed, but not forgotten. He was named Mary Poppins due to him floating up to the surface, and then gracefully floating back down like Mary flying with her parasol.

    5 Gallon Tank Accidentally crushed part of ramshorn's shell, help!

    I want to thank you both again for reaching out to help, unfortunately the little guy didn't make it. When I went to check on him after getting home from work, he had shriveled up and is unresponsive. When I inspected him further, more of his shell had broken off than I initially thought. Over...

    5 Gallon Tank Accidentally crushed part of ramshorn's shell, help!

    Thank you both so much! I'll give the egg shells a try for sure. He's just a common pest snail from some plants I had gotten forever ago, but he's quite the character in his own right that I've gotten quite attached. Hopefully he stays in the perch I've put him in, but I doubt it.

    Yes, the opening to his shell. The white is his shell, his body is dark brown.

    5 Gallon Tank Accidentally crushed part of ramshorn's shell, help!

    I think this is past a small chip, as the lip of the shell had broken off. I tried to inspect him again and he's a bit slimy, so I'm assuming he's attempting to heal himself somehow? He also retracted like he was hiding from a predator when I scooped him up. The rest of his shell doesn't seem to...

    5 Gallon Tank Accidentally crushed part of ramshorn's shell, help!

    I was rescaping my betta's tank and went to resuction the heater and I heard a crack, like egg shells breaking. Turns out it was my ramshorn that had snuck behind there, and the shell by its foot/the opening had been what had broken. There's still a bit of of the spiral left, but is thus awesome...
