    On the eyes or in the eyes...got a post on this with pics.....if around the eyes and not in the eyes...it may be normal pigment and nothing to worry about...I will look for your post....

    Yes, you can safely use the Epsom salt after the fungus treatment

    Hi!
    I was wondering if you might know what the cause would be of white rings around a bettas eyes?
    Can this be a fungus?
    My betta had a fungus problem (white patches on him), and I treated him for it, but the whole time he had white rings around his eyes. The fungus is gone, but the white rings are still there. It's one on each eye, though it does look like it's dissapearing. I'm really worried about it!
    Also, his stomach is bloated a little, can I safely use epsom salt after I finish the treatment for his fungus (I used jungle's fungus clear).

    I will ask my parents if I can get some Prime and add it in and see,
    I hope you feel better soon, thankyou for the help <3

    sorry, the reddish brown is on his VENTRALS.
    and the ammonia was 0.2 not 2, awful awful AWFUL typo. the Prime still might be a good thing to try though.

    Ammonia 2ppm is what sounds to the the problem...check your source water for ammonia and get some Prime if you have ammonia in the source water...sorry it took so long to respond...been really sick today and may not be on much...

    I didn't feed him yesterday, and I started feeding him again today,
    and the pellets aren't floating like they usually do, if this means anything, they sink almost immediately.

    know what might be wrong with him? :/ other than the weird darting and floating around I can't see anything,
    his fin's still a little torn, he has some discolored scales, ( off shade of the rest of the blue on his body ) some redish brown on his pectorals but he's a blue VT so I figured this was his color coming in.... he has some blackish navy blue specks on his tail, I think this is pigment from his real color though because his fins are kindof washed-out still? he had all this when he came from the cup except the rip, which has been healing, but slowed down, ( not getting worse again either though ) and the red on the fins which is really obvious to the point I thought they were bleeding at first, and some much less obvious red hues on the anal, and red brown that follows the shape of his gills behind his eyes. do you think it's parasites or could it be the low PH?
    I use treated tap water, BettaSafe, thankyou for the help, D:

    so it shouldn't be a parasite should it? should I put him in the ( hot water-washed ) cup he came home in and add some AQ salt?
    the PH is kindof low, around 5.5 ( the lowest on the strip so maybe even lower than that ) D:
    and the ammonia is almost 2.0 so I'mma do a 50 change,
    my dad's getting the master kit tonight, but for now I'm using the strips,
    do you
