The Betta Blues
I am not very good with fish. I killed several goldfish. Then I got this Betta fish in January because it was supposed to be a hardier breed. Everything was going great with us. We had a minor snag with some live aquarium plants that weren't to his liking, be we got over that. Then, all of a sudden, he got fin rot! I don't know why, I clean his tank exactly the same and do the partial water changes on schedule. Maybe you can see that some of his fin has gone raggedy and sloughed off. I have been treating him with Melafix for about two weeks now and keeping up with the water changes. His tail isn't currently falling off, but I'm always afraid it will start again. Poor little fishie. I hope some of his tail will grow back.
