Silverfang sent me your way--could you please PLEASE read my post in the Disease section about my handsome man Grebby? He has dropsy, and I can't let him go easily. He's eating, his ammonia was a little high but is back to 0 now after a water change. He's such a good fish. Thank you.
Hi, I have been referred to you to see if you have ever seen a white mass on a betta gill? I posted some pics in the section for emergency illness if you can take a look and let me know. Fish seems in good health other than that and I'm trying to find out if there is anything I can do to help him. Thanks so much in advance. Karendawne
OFL, I need some wisdom based on experience. My Kessler has some ragged fins. He does not have any black or brown on the edges. actually they are white. I have never seen him bite them, but it seems he is as the ragged edges happened over night. I have quar. him in a small tank with salt. He looks good, is blowing bubbles.and eats well. Do you have any idea why or how to correct this?
There is a sticky on NPT on the sister site...TFK......or google NPT-Diana Walstad has a lot of information on them and Betty Harris has some step by step guides on her forum...I can't give links against the rules...but it all pretty easy to find....my NPT are a lot like those with a twist of my own......you truely have to find what works for you by trial and error...but a lot is standard info too....good luck...when you get ready to set one up...I can help you out too....
Is there a thread on how to start, what parameters and do's and don'ts for a naturally planeted tank? I was just curious I'm not interested in doing one but more just to have the knowledge handy. Like the cycling guide or the acclimation guide we have for the bettas and their tanks.
For fin rot-I would start with 1tsp/gal for minor...if pretty severe I would start with 2tsp/gal....also tannins are good to add along with 100% daily water changes for 10 days while in a small QT container....
