Gustauf Posted June 12, 2022 Share Posted June 12, 2022 Relatively new fish keeper here. My betta of about 18 months has been becoming listless and developing discoloration that I can't identify. Ph 8.1 Nitrate 25 Nitrite and ammonia 0 Gh 75 Kh 120 Temp 78-79 All parameters have been stable, test weekly, water changes sporadic. It's my wife's tank, and she tends to clean it couple times a month with about 50% water change. Only tank mates are two RCS and two amanos. Recent history, case of fin rot that got farther along then it should have, treated with 2 rounds of single dose ich-x and maracyn with good result for fin growth. A while later full treatment with maracyn for lethargy and the discoloratons near his tail, lethargy resolved, but discoloration was unchanged. Later 5 days of ich-x with no significant change. Now spots seem to be increasing in size and number, and dark bands have developed behind the gills. I just feel like I'm missing something. Any idea what might be wrong or other empirical treatment options. Or am I just over-worried about a fish that is getting lazy? P.S planted tank with a moderate algae overgrowth only treated with mechanical removal. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
