Lexibee3 Posted July 3, 2021 Share Posted July 3, 2021 Our betta is sick and we are having a hell of a time trying to figure out what is wrong. He shares a 20 gallon filtered and heated tank with one pleco. They seem to ignore each other. All water parameters are good. We noticed him being a bit lethargic about 9 days ago. We fasted him for 3 days with no improvement. Now, he has been moved to a hospital tank. He stays at the top of the tank, mainly on his side. Sometimes he is in a curved "c" shape. His gills appear to be inflamed. He will gulp for air at the top of the tank on occasion. His color has faded but he does not appear to be bloated or have pineconing. Before moving to a hospital tank, we had started a parasitic treatment with no improvement. Now that he is in his hospital tank, we have started treating him with Maracyn 2. Tomorrow will be day 3 of this treatment We have tried to feed him a pea but it sank and he was not able to swim after it. He was fed some Daphnia today The oddest thing is that he is still very interested in food and is very eager to eat. We are just stumped as to what the issue is. Any ideas?
