GILL INFECTION, need some help.
Okay I have had this betta fish for at least a year. Seemed to do well even when I wasn't doing my best.
Now he's lethargic, with a drooping dorsal fin and what appears to be some bad gill infections (they protrude from the gill covers, the covers don't close fully and they have what appear to be red sores next to grey ones.)
Here's my plan.
Is it okay to use soap? I hear it's not good for the fish.
I tried to medicate a fish before to no avail (I actually think I killed it from stress during the whole thing)
Maracyn's instructions say 1 packed per 10 gallons. I'm worried I'll have an inaccurate amount in there and botch the treatment. How much should I expect to be in per pack?
Space reserved for parameters.
If you can guide me through this I'll be happy. It's the first fish I had since I was a little kid and it pains me to think of how I could have taken better care of him.
