I woke up this morning (an hour ago) and turned on the aquarium light like I normally do but something unusual happened... the betta didnt awaken...just stood there sleep. He fianlly awoken and noticed his mouth was snow white, as if he had been eating a powdered donut. His color is pale also and hes been a bit lethargic. I Believe its mouth rot. what do you think and what should I do? thank you
It sounds fungal. I would treat with anti-fungus medicine (Acriflavine based meds, Maracyn TC, Maracyn plus...). For fungal infections, change 25% of the water. Then add the Medication as instructed.
WOW!!!! this white stuff is growing all over his face!!!! its only been 1 day and covering his eyes!!! its even falling off!!
OH NO!!!! my baby... bettas mouth his hanging off!!! oh whata world!
What are your water parameters? I'd recommend doing at least 50% daily water changes.
Here's the medication I'd recommend:
nitrite is 0 nitrate is like 20 or less, pH is about 6.5. I put some betta fix remedy in and some salt, it seems to have stop spreading but things still seem lost...
he is soo discomforted and stressed... his face is horribly disfigured...its over... Im going to euthanize him. Hes suffering. He can hardly breath, cant eat.. thank you all for your help
