Hi Oldfishlady. I'm not sure if you remember me from way back but I used to be Mushu on here. I lost my password and had to make a new account. You had answered a lot of my questions considering my tank set-up with plants and nitrite/nitrate levels. Well, I've improved a lot and have two beautiful planted tanks and I have successfully bred Bettas!!
You could try QT and Epsom salt treatment start with 1tsp/gal for the first 2 days and on day 3 increase to 2tsp/gal and cover the top with plastic veggie wrap for the labyrinth organ....she needs to stay in this water/treatment for a total of 10 days along with 100% daily water changes...temp 76-77F....
Hi! One of the little bettas that i placed with the swordtails is now 3/4 of an inch long. My concern is that now she can't stay afloat. :(
She just stays in the bottom like a belly slider and just rushes to the surface for an occasional gulp of air. This seems to be a case of SBD due to bloating.
I fasted her for 2 days but still she can't swim like she used to.
Any tips? I'm very worried.
