Hi!😃 nice to meet you!😃Hi everyone,
I have two betta tanks ( 5 gallon and 6 gallon ) and one of them containing some shrimp.
My last betta i got about a month ago and he had a foggy eye, but looked generally in good health.
About a week ago i introduced shrimp and some java moss to the tank and noticed yesterday that my betta wasnt looking great.
He had a bit of his lower mouth "dissolved" a gap between his upper lip and head, and right above that a bit of a lump.
From what i gathered it is mouth rot and started medicating the tank yesterday with E.M. Erythromucin.
It looks like it didn't get worse from what i can tell so i'm hoping the meds are working. Poor thing
Since he is white it was hard to spot i think. I added pictures if anyone has thoughts on it, suggestions etc ... all is welcome Thanks!
Aawww...poor baby, he looks "thrilled", not!😞😞
Maybe some aquarium salt? Salt does wonders; you know? Just a little, don't make it brackish, butt then, enough to possibly make it work though...also, they have regular "Betta water", I'm sure you know about...hmmm...poor little guy, I just hate for babies to suffer; you know?
