Some questions about my betta fish


Just a Pygmy Corydora

I don't know if I'm over-worrying or anything, but I see that Aurora has red-gills when he is flaring, he comes to the surface to breathe every 30 seconds, and blows bubbles often in the water like he is suffocating/choking... can someone help me identify if its a disease, and if its gill flukes or gill disease? Thanks so much!!619235793_Aurorafulltank.JPG.27c16c8dcb62fc0fd5fc199bd84db02b.JPG

Well, if they look like he cant close them. Or if they seem really puffy. But when a betta flares you can naturally see the inside of the gills and they will look red. I would be more concerned if they were not red. lol.  It is always a good idea to treat him with the med trio but I am 99% sure nothing is wrong with his gills. If you have never treated him with the trio I would recommend it! Just in case he has some internal parasites or something. If you are still worried maybe you could try to add some pics of him flaring.
