So You might remember my Betta Reuben. He never poos (well he must or he'd be dead, but I've never seen it), he is always bloated but fine in himself. He has recently started to get some sort of fin rot, fin loss kind of thing. My water is fine, no ammonia, no nitrite and no nitrates but the PH is around 8 something, as a noobish person I think that is high but I might be wrong. I will test again later because I only just found out I'm meant shake bottle 2... I did a big water change today and used to water I took to give him an epsom salt bath I have been putting off for ages, I've been so scared to try it, I put 3 small table spoons in a tank that is just over 3 gallons. Reuben didn't mind this, I thought he would show some stress, but he just acted chill like always. I might so another in a day or two. I also fed him some pea for what it's worth, not that it's helped him before. I have some aquarium salt on it's way to me, that API salt. I don't know whether or not to do a dip or add it to the tank... Need to research that. You get a betta thinking "hardy, tough fish, hard as nails!" well you're wrong. My poor little, Reuben Reuby Rubix cube.
