    I bought a baby betta less than a week ago, and she has ammonia burns. They were already there when I got her, but I feel like it got worse after I gave her melafix (I didn't realize it hurt bettas). Is there anything specific I need to do? Other than her looks, everything else is fine. She has a good appetite, and a full belly. She's super active, and her color doesn't look dull. She's not showing any symptoms that I've read about. Thanks for the advice!

    Awww, poor little cutie! So sorry she got hurt. The best thing to do, after maintaining clean and soft, acidic water, is to offer her some live food. Dero worms are very easy to raise and a tasty, healthy treat if you feed them some blanched vegetable trimmings.

    Thank you so much!! So frozen food won't help much?

    She'll like frozen blood worms, but I have to admit that it's really fun both for the fish and the human to let them hunt a live worm, plus you're in control of the cleanliness of thefood source ;)
