LDZ Posted April 27 Share Posted April 27 A month ago I got a small Trapdoor Snail. I added it to my Betta tank. I didn't quarantine it because I read snails don't carry fish diseases now thinking that I can get might be wrong. Ammonia 0 nitrites 0 ph 7 well cycled tank is. About two weeks ago my Betta started to show symptoms of bloat, swollen belly, and extremely lethargic. He use to be extremely active and now all he does is sit on the bottom of the tank. I fasted him and have been feeding daphnia and spiralina for a week. He has a really good appetite and still eats really well. Could the snail have given him anything??? I also have a few neo shrimp with him. FYI I got him from a lps a year ago and he is a dragon scale with diamond eye and completely blind. I knew it when I got him. I taught him to eat in a feeding ring. He has also had multiple small tumors coming on over the last few months. What should I do. I'm reluctant to move him to a quarantine tank because of him being blind. I have also considered he could be getting old. The thing I don't understand is why is his appetite so good for him acting so sick? Thank you for your help!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
