He's doing pretty good! He's still pretty bloated, but his scales are normal and he has good color :)
He always swims on the side of the tank that i'm by and watched me do homework and stuff. Super curious little guy, he is. He even dances when i have music playing! I'm going to try an epsom salt treatment to relieve the bloating and hopefully make him look normal again. Thank you for asking! :)
Thank you for your encouragement and help through the process. You were a big help, and I don't think he would've even survived as long without your help, so I appreciate all the help you provided and I will probably buy another betta but it will take me some time.
Happy new year!! I do have some bad news about Kalamari, he is still living but I am almost certain he is nearing his last days. His gills will not close completely and he sits at the water surface motionless nearly all day, even his fins will stop moving, and his breathing slows.
Finally getting some progress. I partnered him up in the double tank with one of the other boys to try and build his immunity.
Problem is he cant play nice and keeps ramming the barricade, hopefully not much longer and he can go back to his forever alone tank.
(sorry it took so long, for some reason I got no notification about your post to my email)
I have no idea why I can't open this web site with my laptop, but I can using my tablet. I use them at home, oth on the same wireless router. I haven't been able to add anymore pictures on here, but I did put some on my facebook page.
YES he is still alive! I have been changing his water more often and doing 100% changes. He never regained his vigor from before, and never built another bubble nest, but he eats eagerly and swims around some. I'm quite sure he has a swim bladder issue and yesterday I noticed the "film" on his head seems worse again so I will be treating his tank again next time I change it. I wish he was healthier, but I'm glad he's still with me! Thanks for your concern! Happy New Year to you too!
He is on his second dose of jungle lifeguard all-in-one treatment and I added 1 tbs of aquarium salt. I removed all the gravel out of his 10 gallon tank filled his tank half-full I have him in a Floating cup. I'm starting to see some white specs I did get him to eat too small flakes today he still hasn't pooped his color looks a little better but he wouldn't eat Pea. I have his temperature at 82° he's laying in his bowl and less I tap it he wont swim. It's almost like he started with swim bladder when he would eat he would float sideways, then after a few hours he was fine. now i think the ich is starting to surface. I moved my guppies to a 5 gallon tank and am treating them as well...any other suggestions? If you get a chance please look at the photos in my album. I have pics from yesterday and today...what do you think
