Advice Needed

Is hob filter medium considered chemical filtration?

I need to go away for 1-3 days. I was going to start kanaplex but not sure if I should until I return. I'm concerned that he is too ill to start antibiotics. I noticed that his scales are raised and fear he is pineconing. I'm thinking he may have worms but not sure if he would survive treatment.

He is such a beautiful boy. I wish the previous owner would have been better educated on the care and needs of bettas and treated him when he started presenting with these symptoms 2 weeks previous to when I got him. I'm so frustrated because his ailments would have been easily treated.

The chemical filtration in a power filter would be substances like, Charcoal / Activated Carbon Resins, or media that absorbs Ammonia & Phosphates. If your Betta is exhibiting Dropsy, pine
coneing, probably not going to end well. Good luck.
