Hi, thanks for trying to help but I just figured out that I can`t get Neoplex or Kanaplex in Canada.julkosi17 said:Do you have a picture of him? I’m not too experienced with medication, but Kanaplex says on the packaging that it treats popeye so I guess you could go with that one.
Hi, thanks for helping. Sorry for asking I am new in the hobby but how would I find a vet?AvalancheDave said:Finding a vet is really your only hope. Even in the US the chances of treating this successfully w/o a vet are basically zero.
Thank you that was super helpful.julkosi17 said:I don’t know much about popeye, but here’s a website that can help you: Popeye - Bettaboxx
Popeye is usually treatable without a vet I think, unless there’s a secondary infection or something. The white fuzz on his gills most likely columnaris and so is the spot on his head. He probably has popeye because of columnaris.
Do you have any other fish in the tank? Columnaris is highly contagious, so you want to take him out as soon as possible. I would set up a hospital tank for your betta and treat him there. I think the most common way to treat columnaris is to use aquarium salt, and furan 2, as well as lowering your tank temperature (I think to 75-77°F).
