| || | Ill Crowntail Betta
Hi, I am looking for some info. For the past week our betta has been ill. It started with erratic behavior and rubbing on decorations and plants in his tank. The assumption was flukes and we are just finishing his treatment for this. He did better on day 1 of the treatment but has since gone downhill fast... He is lethargic, is no longer eating (as of tonight) and has been hiding for about 3 days now. The only change in his tank is that we added live plants in the past 3 weeks (currently are 3 in there) and our cory was switched to our new bigger tank. I am wondering what we can do? It is a 5g tank that he shares with our 2 glass shrimps. If anyone could give us some help that would be great. Also please note if it changes anything that my gf has access to veterinary products if it is necessary however working with dogs/cats, she is not familiar with fish and may not have the proper form of the meds we may need.
the ammonia is 0, the nitrites are 0, and the nitrates are 10ppm as of 2 days ago.
