    Do a water change to clean any uneaten food out of his tank. What temperature is this QT tank? How old is the betta? And if you have a water test kit, test the main tank for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    The ghost shrimps take care of the food and I do a small water change every week did one today the qt tank is use the same water from main tank will replace a small amount everyother day, bettas 3-4 years old, I don't have a test kit but with my mosquitofish fry and baby ghost shrimp I think they would show sighns first, and my filter is rated for 60 gallons, plus all my live plants my paremeters should be fine.

    Betta usually live 3-4 years. You've had this betta since you were 6?

    No I was 8 but it was about 1-1.5 years old when I got it, so somewhere inbetween 3 and 4 should I put some bettafix in there its active ingredient is tea tree oil well it says melaleuca but I looked it up and what I read said it is the same thing.

    Please help, I read that 1/2 a teaspoon per half gallon epsom salt baths for 15-20 miutes daily will cure it?
