I've had my betta fish for a long time, now. He's always been a very active betta fish. He follows your finger around the tank, he likes to swim through his little plant, and since I collect rocks I like to put rocks outside of his tank to give him new and interesting things to look at. Obviously it's because he's a very aggressive betta, but he gets very excited every time he sees something new. I love him to death. Unfortunately, I've noticed that he has a very mild case of fin rot. I caught it quickly and brought home medication. I've been giving him the recommended dose, which is half a teaspoon. I followed the directions and added it straight to the tank. I also mix it around a bit with the handle of a fish net to make sure it's stirred in. The problem is, I don't think that my fish is getting better. It hasn't gotten worse, it's just stayed the same. I checked his plant and did the whole pantyhose test, and it was just fine. I'd hate to take out his plant because it always seems like he's hanging out around it and he likes to sleep under the big leaves. He doesn't seem to like the bubbles from the medication. When I pour the bubbles in, the filter causes a lot of bubbles to form at the top of the tank, sometimes even covering the entire top. I will admit, I know it's bad, but I have him in a one gallon tank. He's always seemed to hate bigger tanks, and since he's pretty aggressive I'm worried about putting him in one of my community tanks. I have two community tanks; one with some goldfish and the other with mollies, tetras, and some small yellow and orange fish (I'm not sure what they're called). I'm worried about testing how they'll get along because I love my goldfish and all of the other fish are schooling fish, so I'd hate for some of them to end up alone. But again, this isn't an emergency. It's very mild (just one or two tiny pin sized holes and his tail looks a little jagged here and there) but he has a gorgeous, large tail and I'd hate for him to get sick or even be unhappy. He is still just as active and his big personality hasn't changed at all. I love him to death and will try my best (within what I'm able to afford, of course. Currently I can't afford a bigger tank just for my betta. I'm only fifteen, and I'm mainly focusing on service hours instead of being payed to do work) to help him get better. His name is Ron, by the way.
