Ive posted on here before when i first got Dorey my daughters betta fish for her 4th bday and everyone on here helped me so much so i thought i would turn back to you guys for some much needed advice. Here's my story... The person who gave my daughter her betta for her bday also got her son one for xmas. Its kept in a 2L bowl, not heated or filtered. I noticed about 2 weeks ago her fish was hardly moving and his water was so dirty and gross. I even tapped on the tank hard and he didnt move. I told her what i saw and she told me later on that she changed his water so i left it at that. Well she came to my house yesterday and seen the set up i have for my daughters betta and how much i have learned (thanks to all of you) about betta care and ask any questions she may have. Well she called me today saying hes not moving or eating and just doesnt look right. I went there myself to see how the little guy was and omg he looks horrible. She asked me to take him and see if i can make him well so i did. She also told me she cleaned his tank TODAY and when i tested the ammonia it was 8.0 or higher. I immediately got my daughters old fish bowl out and treated the water, added salt and xfered him to the clean water about half hr after acclimating him. (sorry this is so long) Heres his problem... I dont know if hes got ick or dropsy or maybe he has both. He could aslo have swim blatter too. I would say he has ammonia poisoning for sure. He may have Gill Parasites. He has white spots all over his scales. He has clamped fins. Hes floating on the top of the bowl but not on his side. Hes bloated badly and he also looks like how dropsy looks. Hes breathing quite fast and his gills are always open. I keep comparing him to my healthy betta dorey and man there is soooo much of a difference. i dont know what to do for this little guy. If i can get pics of him i will post. Oh and his caudal fin the end of it is curled. Soo sorry this is long i just want to make sure i dont leave anything out. Please help. I have his mom getting him a bigger heated filtered tank this week. I found out she washed the gravel 1ce per 2 weeks and changed his water once a week. (poor guy) Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thx everyone.
