tux has got a pretty bad case of sbd, and is boyant. I think it's his actual swim bladder that's not working, because when he sleeps, he ends up floating with his tail up and his head down. I've got him in a 2 gallon qt tank, heated to 80*s, 1 tsp of epsom salt per gallon, with the lid on for humidity, and I change the water 100% every other day. But it's not working. Do you have an suggestions?
Yes, i ended up using plants from the canal that id quarantined, they like to hide in the duckweed roots mostely, theres a few that dont have round bellies but hopefully they figure it out soon, inforsia and nematodes so far, about 40 fry still alive and going :)
I seem to have some nematodes that hitchhiked in on plants, white, super thin worms that move like snakes, and ive caught a couple of fry with them sticking out of their mouths, they gobble them down. Googling i see that fry do like these worms, and they all have little white tummies, well most do, so hard to see them so small. :)) i have pictures on my breed thread if youd like to see.
Hi again OFL :) Just double checking but betta fry that are eating lots of inforsia have big white bellies right? I have quite a few plants and even 2 cultures of inforsia ive been putting in just because theres a few smaller fry but majority have white full bellies and i can only assume thats the right color for inforsia :))
Oldfishlady, I could use some help. I hope this is the way to contact you. I want to buy a small aquarium and all the proper equiptment I need for my new six month old betta. Any suggestions on brands? Or places to shop. Years ago I had a betta but kept him in a large bowl. After reading all the info on here I feel like I did not do very well by him.
