Hi and thank you! I began doing all that last night. I am pretty sure it is from the live daphnia tank so, I put in a second sponge filter, on low, as well as doing the water changes she recommended. It seems better now. I might resort to using frozen daphnia, for now as, they live in pond like conditions and, I have no clue how else to feed them, but by just shooting them in. :)
I am so new, I had no clue this was even here :)
I appreciate any help and any advice given as, I am learning and, eventually would like to be doing this full time. I will look that up on the forum..see if I can find her posts. I thank you and I apologize for taking so long to even see this message. :)
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?
Hi, anhel123. I saw your message from a few days ago. Unfortunately my baby boy Triton passed away several months ago and it took me a while before I could get myself to go out and buy another betta. But only five days after I purchased him, he seems to be losing his fins. :( Terribly rotten luck.
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.
Hi, umm so I have a question, it has been a 2weeks that Kaimu-shin has been off the salt treatment, he is growing his fins and last week I got him the kasibo house with the plastic bamboo plant that comes with it(got it at petco), but then I noticed tears in his fins so I took it out got the plant out did a 90% water change, I took him out of the tank and he stressed so bad he turned white with the black lines, so I added silk plants and the kasibo with no plastic plant I just cut them out, and a new decor thingy, I aclimated him, he eat after I put him in, and I was checking him but then I noticed that his fins look like ragged at the tips and mostly were the tears were, I dont see black but then it is hard to see as he is black with teal blue, umm dont know what to do if go ahead and treat with API melafix or do a salt treatment again. what do you recommend ? I will take a pic of him and send it to you when I know how to... thank you for your help.
I know what you mean about people not understanding the necessary precautions. The way it was brought up and suggesting I didn't know what I was doing... it was a bit offending. I love rescuing and treating sickly betta and I've been doing it for some time now. But I will thank you for trying to inform. :)
Please understand, however, that not everyone rushes blindly into rescues and that you should approach the subject less condescendingly
