How are you?
So sorry to bother you, but, my betta, Zen, has suddenly come down with SBD...It's the first time he's ever had it and he has it pretty bad. He keeps going sideways and is a little bloated. He's also having a bit of trouble swimming normally. I did a 100% water change, and lowered the water level in his tank to only a couple of inches deep. I knocked over all his silk plants so he can lay on them if he wants, and increased the water temperature to about 82F when I changed it. I'll fast him for a couple of days, too. Is that good enough for now? or should I go out and buy him some Epsom salt and give him some of that?
( I also have no idea how he got it..I only feed him 2 pellets once a day....)
Thank you so much! :)
Just a note expressing my respect even admiration for the time you spend with us new keepers. I always find some valuable tips and new information whenever I follow your posts, regardless of the topic. That 'emergency' post was excellent.
