I've never heard of Seachem Prime! I'll look into it.Just mix it with the water. Good he's feeling better. If your filter gets gunky, just rinse it with drained aquarium water during water changes. If the instructions don't say to do water changes don't do them. Did you get
Seachem Prime? If you didn't, you need to. If you want your tank to cycle so you don't have to change water every other day, you need ammonia in the water. Prime will protect your Betta from low levels of ammonia.
Question: With fin rot... He'll be on his third round of Kanaplex tonight. He's still floating at the top. I've seen him trying to go down, but he can't because his fins are so small. I've noticed he has lost a lot of fins since treatment - is it just that the fin was already rotted so it had to fall off and then new fin will grow? I do see a little - and I mean little - bit of clear white on some of the tips. It can't be fungal as I've done the Jungle Clear AND then moved on to Kanaplex, right?!
Also, the water parameters are the same as before. He's still eating. I plan on doing a 25% water change before treatment. I don't see him swimming erratically. Thanks!
