If he is in one gall take the filter out. There is no point to keep the filter and its actually more bother for him. Just do 2-50% and 1-100% water changes a week. Can you keep the temperature in one gall tank? I am glad at least he is acting healthy. Sorry i feel bad that i think its your second betta and its sick. But think this way, you give him love and life more than he would get in the store. They get sick just like any pet is. We have to expect that too. He is happy with you:)
Hello! I still have him in a 1 gallon tank. I'm going to keep him in here until the virus clears up. This morning, it appears that the virus is growing bigger on each side of his fin but has no spread to any additional areas. I guess that's the best I can hope for at this point!
polity i have a question for you. Do you still have him in one gall tank? If you have him in one gall tank ? I am assuming you not since you have the filter. So he is in 10 gall? If you doing full water changes you don't need to use the filter.
If he is in 10 gall and you are using the filter then you need to do 50% water changes (n ot 25%) and make sure you vacuum under the gravel very well to get all debris out. You also need to swish/rinse the filter media weekly in the tank water.
But if you doing full water changes you don't need to use the filter. I hope he is doing good.

Hey i actually ask Sakura for help too but she didn''t log on the forum for a few days. So hopefully she will today or tomorrow. I saw your mess in her visitor messages. I would really do a water change, actually as soon as possible a few 50% water changes about 1 hr apart. Do you still keep the filter ? And if you don't use the filter i would do full water change .
