hi anhel123. hey, hope things are well with you... thank you for the help. when you order meds online you can get them pretty quick? i read from someone who is studying to be a veterinarian, and he gave a list of meds he recommended for bettas and maracyn was one of them. you're right. it's good to know other good meds are also available out there!!
Oh brooke thank you for saying hello to me. I feel bad you end up with sick betta again. I did put my advice in your post. Now it a lot of new medications that people recommending though. But usually you have to order them on line. I do know a few people who successfully used Maracyn's drugs. And i really advice to use higher dose of the salt.
i'm going to rehome fantasia, and created a thread in the classifieds section. thankfully, someone who is locate is interested in him. just thought i'd give a small update. i think this person who's local may possibly be a new good owner for him *sniff*
Good luck in shool!!! school is important. Yes epsom salt is good you can use it for long time. If you have add stress coat API. It will protect his slime coat and help to prevent infections. Not sure how long you will use epsom salt , i hope he will completely recovery and you can be back to just regular water changes. Long way for you and for him. Good luck! Please let me know if you ever need anything for fish, i will happy to help.Good luck with final exams :)
thanks for asking! :) good to hear from you. he's 75ish% better. did aqsalt full treatment, then clean water for one day, and now trying epson salt (epson salt is helping him become his old self again). the bad thing though! i've changed his water once a week (sometimes twice) instead of daily. :( end of semester school assignments and final exams in two weeks. sooo, going to see about a one gallon container (it'll hopefully help with daily changes) that is cheap-o since this college girl needs to be good with money. :)
Hello Anhel123! =)
Lately with more compressed time for classes during summer school and final exams happening right now, I haven't been taking care of my betta very well at all. I began changing his water 100% only once a week and usually feed him two pellets twice a day lately. That is it. :/ Now he's acting like he is very sick. I'm thinking it was poor water quality (obviously) and underfeeding him...... Next time, I will do something like get a bigger tank where I do not have to change his water twice a week, because with school right now I do not have the time unfortunately. For only a last resort, I thought of giving him away to someone who was preferably experienced or responsible fish keeper who would be willing and have the time to nurse him back to health or take good care of him. Right now he only floats at the bottom of his tank and the last time I fed him pellets he wouldn't eat them. :/
just changed his tank water but there is no improvement.
