Betta Fin Help


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I’ve been working with trying to fix my bettas fins for a month now. He started with one pinhole that would tear and then bind right up. I cannot find the cause of the pinholes, now that they have spread all over even to his side fins. The only thing I found about pinholes is blowout, however he does not flare a lot. He had a little white bump that now turned to a laceration on his face and is super lethargic until I add stress coat.  Any and all suggestions are appreciated. 

5 gallon heated(78) and filtered tank, silk and love plants, ghost shrimp tank mates, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10ppm. *currently in a hospital tank with water lowered* Treatments I’ve used: betta fix, stress coat, aquarium salt.

What I would do is add Indian almond leaves 1 leaf per gallon as they have antibacterial and antifungal properties he doesn't look the best then I would treat with kanaplex in food feed a small amount twice a day for 7days the fact that he lethargic means he putting all his efforts into fighting the infection
