Hello! Got some questions for you fishperts out there. This is my new female betta, I got her Wednesday afternoon. Video: Upon moving my last betta into a cup while I did a full water change, I sadly learned the importance of lids. :'( Since that one was a sort of "rescue", I decided to bring home a sickly looking fish I had passed by several times on my visit the the local pet shop. It appeared to be suffering from a bad case of constipation (her eyes were nearly bulging) and SBD. I placed her in the aquarium (10g), cranked the heat up to 80°F, and have fed her nothing but boiled pea bits (Th,S) and a probably insignificant amount of daphnia (F). This alleviated some pressure-- I managed to spot something resembling chunky poops at the bottom of the tank, but this seems to be a stubborn case of constipation. I may have to go the epsom salt route if it doesn't go away. I'm doubtful of dropsy since there's no pineconing and as you can see in the video she's still got an appetite and some recently manifested spunk. The SBD must have recessed some because she isn't flailing to the top anymore. Still takes some work for her to swim. The other think I noticed is the weird red and white splotchy coloration around her face, mouth and head. I don't think it's velvet, since the red color matches that of her body and tail. The lack of shininess in some places almost looks like scales are missing. I'm not familiar with ich, but from what I've seen in photos it's more "dotty" that what she has. I added some extra stress coat to the tank, but that hasn't stopped her from laying against the filter intake, rubbing against the suction cups attached to the heater and filter and swimming weird through her plants. She also seems to be sort of "gulping" air at fairly short intervals, rather than just "booping" the surface to breathe. Who knows, maybe that one's just a difference in fish. Anybody notice anything odd? I don't know, maybe I'm reading into it too much! I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
