It wasn’t very “fluffy”, but it was a white film over his face. He declined very quickly... went from no obvious symptoms to dead in 16 hours.Kristian Acevedo said:Did he have any cotton growth around his mouth or gills or fins? Bettas seem to be prone to columnaris if they get too stressed out (This is my experience, don’t take this as fact) and I lost a whole sorority this way
Thank you.Buganjimo said:If it’s not fluffy, it’s likely a bacterial infection. Quarantine him from your other fish as they will get it too, and it is easier to treat it in a qt tank. I don’t know where you live therefore can’t definitively tell you what meds to get, but look for something with bacterial medication on the label.
Edit: just realized he died, I’m sorry. Monitor your other fish incase they get it too. As it was near his face+gils I am inclined to belive it got into his gils and he died because he couldn’t breathe.
