My Betta-Buddy- is a large bright red 2.5 year old betta. He is noramally very happy. When ever i walk in my office he swims right up to me. A few weeks ago i noticed a small white ulcer right under his mouth...i treated him with Betta Fix for a couple of weeks....it didn't clear it up but it also didn't get any worse.
it didn't seem to bother him so i figured he was okay. about a week ago, he started to develope a large bump. the scales are not sticking out, just a large bump located close to the white ucler--which is now fuzzy. Today is is very lethargic and just floating at the top of the water. he is in a 3 gallon tank w/ a filter and heater. the Heater was set at 76 so i did raise it a couple of degrees.
Just today I started to treat his tank with Quick Cure for parasites--the pet store said that is likely.
anyone have any other ideas?? I don't want to lose him after 2.5 years of being my office buddy and our office mascott!!
