    I just did a water change and added a little aquarium salt and treated the water for my Bettas fungal infection. I put him back in tank and just started wigging our. Swimming very erratically, going upside down, and then keeling over. I have had him for a year and he was fed over two years old. I followed the salt dosage on the api aquarium salt package, and the water was about 80 degrees. I am so confused.

    EDIT: I added too much salt. I didn’t measure the tank correctly. I feel horrible.

    Did you take the betta out during the water change? Did you make sure to acclimate him back to the tank before putting him into the water?

    I would do a water change to remove the excess salt.
