I like that. it's nice for the betta to have the choice of how much of a flow to swim in, and we like the calm corner for feeding.Asinity said:I'm really considering settling Kyler into a tank without much movement. I do think that even on the lowest setting, my tank has too high a current for him to deal with. Watching the tiny little bubbles from my air stone float around the tank, there really isn't anywhere without current. I can definitely see how a 10 gallon would work better than any other tank now, they'd at least have a section where there is limited movement so they can rest.
What do you all think?
This is what I'm doing with Cujo right now, using Tetracycline. The package of tetracycline has different directions, but I'm not following them. I'm not overdosing him, but just carrying on the treatment longer, as Faith suggests above. I'm not saying this is the right way to go, please use your own judgement. But what my experience with Cujo has been like is this: he'll go on meds, the rot will halt, he goes off meds, the rot immediately comes back. The difference in the above scenario is that you continue treatment for a much longer time, and I believe this makes completely sure that all the bad bacteria is gone. Cujo has been on the TC for 2 weeks now, and while I was out of town had some more fraying on his tail. So he's going to get the next two weeks with more of the same. After that he will go on a two week regimen of either betta fix or bettamax.Do a full jar water change. Use tetracycline or Triple Sulfa (included in our Betta First Aid Kit) combined with Fungus Eliminator (included in our Betta First Aid Kit). Change water every third day and add a new dose of same medication. Continue until fins/tail stop receding and start showing some new growth. This may take up to 4 weeks, so don’t give up. Once rot stops and fins start growing back you can stop treatment, but not before then.
