Chlo Posted May 13, 2021 Share Posted May 13, 2021 I'm not sure if my female betta has velvet or some other disease. When I first got her she was my first fish, so she went through a lot of cycling problems and some medications because I over diagnosed her and at some point thought she had every disease a betta can get. She was never lethargic or not eating, but her skin always looked weird and she always had ragged fins. She never really looked better after I treated with meds, and recently she kind of looks like she has velvet (if I shine a flashlight on her head she kind of looks like she has rust on her head). Her skin/scales don't look too good either. The last few days two of her scales started peeling/coming off, and I'm not sure if that is advanced velvet or something. I've treated her for velvet a couple times before, but her head didn't change color so I assumed she didn't have it. I'm not really sure anymore. She's not lethargic, she is still eating and swimming around a lot. She also has cloudy eye or it might be popeye, I though that was because of bad water quality but she has had it for a long time now. In the pictures I am shining a flashlight on her pH: 8.0-8.2 Nitrates: 5-10 ppm when I tested a few days ago Hardness: around 17 dGH Nitrite: 0 Ammonia: 0 KH/Buffer: 6 dKH Water Temperature: 78 F Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
