What sort of antibiotics?Either a tumor or a bacterial infection. Try clean water changes first, then go for true antibiotics for bacteria as melafix isn't worth much except as a preventative (and sometimes can cause issues with betta because it is an oil that can coat the surface of the water where they might ingest/inhale it).
Oh noIf it gets bigger it might be cancer. My first betta had something similar.
Was wondering what do ya use tonic for? And if it may help my fish but it is hard not knowing what exactly is wrong with him.
I have placed an almond leaf in his tank, but tonight wen I got home I noticed another lump.I dont personally know but someone might come along who does.
If he is perking up from a nice 50% water change then I'd maybe keep up that for the next week and see how he is.
You can get natural things like Indian Almond Leaves and Alder Cones to put in the tank with him.
They both have healing properties with the tannins released and when leaves breakdown.
Also I dont think we can get those meds in new Zealand.
Hi yes I have been doing water changes, and almond leaf also salt, he's actually looking alot better than he was, wat do u think?In Australia we don’t have over the counter medication ether.
You have the almond leaf. Rooibos tea bags are another form of antibacterial medication.
I have been watching your thread Shawnstar .
All I can suggest is the tea bags and almond leaf along with multiple water changes.
I am sorry to say but your fish looks to be pineconing . Which is the final state of a problem. Possibly an internal bacterial infection?View attachment 797747 Rooibos tea is not the same plant as common tea .It has no caffeine.
A link to Rachels channel as she talks about is scientifically proven benefits.
