I can't say anything from the picture. I am thinking if it can be his slime coat. Is there any behavior changes at all? Darting, scratching on objects?(gravel, heater , walls). How much water you changing in his 5 gall ? I think you told me you do 50% weekly with gravel vacuuming right? Any symptoms on the body?
Yesterday, when I was changing some of Ivory's water, there were lots of little clear things in his water, the more I scooped out with a net, the more came. I thought they looked like pieces of his skin, but I couldn't tell which part of his body they were coming from. I took a picture of him today and added it to his album. It is in "my new beta" album, called "Ivory's comparison". I will take another one on the weekend to compare it to.
I just replaced 25% of Ivory's water. There wasn't any of that stuff in there this time - 4 days since I changed it. I tested the water using a test strip. ..the ONLY reading that wasn't safe was the hardness, it indicated that the water was hard. Which hardness would be best and how do I achieve it?
lol not sure i think he might will get used to you soon. I have one betta who does it all the time, it kind of cute. My other males do it sometimes too for a second and then stop. Is it possible that he might see his own reflection? Or you just come unexpected and he does it...Not sure but i do have male like that too.
Hi there, can you tell me why my male beta keeps flaring at me? I know they flare at each other for territory reasons, but he flares at me when I touch my finger to his glass, or when my face is to close to his tank. Is he angry with me, or maybe he's trying to intimidate me.
oh sorry i think your wrote me that. Well if it one gall do 3tsp/gall not 1 tsp though. Can you tell me if he had those symptoms white spots anywhere on his body, looks like he sprinkled with salt? Darting, rubbing his body on objects? Also what color is his poo? I can see something white on his body. Does he has fuzzy white cottony patches on his body? How long? Can you remind to me how long he is sick? I think i read somewhere that he had slime coat when you bought her? How long you have her?
