Hello everyone on the disease forum. I have a betta (Mr. Velvetine - soon to be Mr. Complicated with all these illnesses) in my 14ish gallon tank. I noticed that he had some bronze colored spots on his face and decided to treat the tank for Velvet (the cories were looking itchy too). It's in the middle of treatement for velvet and I just noticed the betta's fins look like they're getting frayed. UH OH!! I can't start treatment for fin rot until 2 days after the velvet treatment ends (on Wednesday). What should I do? I was also wondering what normal swimming behavior for bettas are. He CONSTANTLY paces back and forth along the front of the glass. He doesn't do it slowly either. He'll be at one side then quickly swim to the other and back again all day. The lights have been off in the aquarium for a few days for the velvet, so I know he's not chasing his reflection. Just wondering if this is a sign of an illness or how I can get him to stop - he seems to be stressing himself out.
