Natural Posted March 5, 2022 Share Posted March 5, 2022 Newbie: I need determining if this is fin rot or tearing. Attached are new and now pics. I've had the tank setup for 3 weeks and all the parameters are where they should be based on the Co-op's multi-test strips. I have tested the water several times and keeping up on water evaporation. I have a sponge filter (also Co-op) and heater and the temperature is where it should be. I had a so-called silk plant and a couple of betta hammocks (along with a live plant and moss) in the tank. I suspect the fake items may be the culprits. I removed the plant and rounded the edges of the hammocks to make them smooth. Hi LOVES the hammocks. He is eating. He is swimming, but I haven't had him long enough to know what is normal for him. He is the only fish in the tank (3 gallon). Yes, I know...5 gallon is preferable, but my landlord limits to 3 gallons...and I bought the elongated tank at the Co-op. It seems spacious enough. I have read that treating a healthy fish with medication is bad. I ordered Stress Coat, but I hoping someone can tell me if I should treat with antibiotics? Thank you.
