So my kids are getting into haveing fish, while they were picking out their fish I saw a Betta I just felt bad for and it’s water had some filmy stuff floating in it, so I got him and he seemed to be doing better in the 1.5 gallon bowl, so I got a 10 gallon tank for him. He is tan and looking at things online I think it might be fin rot.
I have noticed some color starting to comeback on his tail but with the water changes I was hoping to see better improvement in a week and a half.
He swims a lot more in the 10 gallon tank but still lays on his side a lot. I have attached a picture of him.
I have added a tsp. Of aquarium salt per gallon of water to his tank tonight. How long should I try salt before moving on to something else?
If it looks like something else I do have other things on hand, Kanaplex and jungle fungus clear on hand, but didn’t jump straight to meds.
Let me know any suggestions to help him get better sooner. I have the apI master test kit ordered, and have been using ammonia test strips and doing 50% change every other day in the fishbowl, he has been in the tank for 2 days and I used an instant cycle bacteria, and will be doing a 50% change tomorrow.
