Betta Discoloration
 
My betta who is now recovering from Swimming bladder disorder has very oddly colored gills.

I havent fed him much in about a month to heal him from the Swimming bladder disorder. He only eats a small portion of pea every other day. Every 3 days I give him an epsom salt bath.


Now, he looks pathetic, his marvelous coloration...gone... his strength...gone... his gills are sporting a blue ish color. Whats this about?

Also, Ive had this 10 gallon tank for about 2 months now and im still having trouble with ammonia and nitrite. Why is this?
the betta is alone
Also the water is VERY hard.
Temp is between 78-83 degrees F. 8)

Tank water is too hot. Remove the heater or turn it down to about 75 degrees F.
