  1. Thanks for your help. I'll do that. No salt or anything? Tail looks pretty short, but he perked up quite a bit since he got out of that cup, where he was just lying on his side. He's swimming around and looks happy.
  2. The tank is a 2.5 gallon, temp 79 Ammonia 0 Nitrites 0 Nitrates seem to be between 0 and 5, but closer to 5
  3. Thanks Haven't used cycled media. Only had the media from the goldie tank and wasn't sure if that's safe?
  4. Hi there, sorry, wasn't here for such a long time. Life got busy... Just got this new betta today. He looked so sad in his dirty little cup. The cup said he's an elephant ear betta, but his fins look really bad, like fin rot. Not sure if the link works. haven't done this in a while He's in a 2.5 Gallon tank right now, that I just set up this morning. I can get test readings if you need them. Any ideas how to make this guy feel better? Thank you .
  5. Thanks for your help Helen. I think she'll just have to go naturally. I don't think I can do the clove oil... Thanks for your support.
  6. not reacting to food or my hand being right there. And barely breathing. You have to really look hard to see any movement at all.
  7. she is lying against one of the decorations kind of in C, yes. And her mouth is half open and not moving. But she is still breathing a little bit. Can't upload a photo, because the camera is at work.
  8. Just got home and she is barely moving at all, just lying on her side. Should I still move her to the other tank?
  9. no, but I can pick some up at the pharmacy on the way home.
  10. ok. thanks. I have the aquarium salt at home. What and how will I feed her with the syringe?
  11. The last time she ate was two days ago. How much would 0.05 salt be in teaspoons?
