Good Morning Guys,
I'm new here so let me present myself:
My name is Jo„o(John) and I'm from Brazil
Recently I decided to buy a fish for my kid(2 years old) and ended up being a Betta with a ~ 2 liters aquarium+thermometer( I know thats not ideal but i'm low on $$).
I used to clean the aquarium 2x week + Hot water and blankets to keep it warm(hey you gotta do what you gotta do). It went well for a year almost, but after it showed a lethargic behavior staying at bottom which made me think it was some kind of dropsy, but since it was floating fine, I changed my mind to a infection. I treated it with anti fungal+neomycin, altough after 3 days it died with its body covered with greyish fur(it looks like fungi hyphae imo
), It was very sudden!
I just loved the experience so I decided to invest more but before doing so I wanted to know what went wrong. Can you guys help me diagnose what happened? I suspect it was some kind of saprolegnia spp. May i post its photo here? I'll try to get a microscope also with some dyes(hey i just love this!).
Thanks in advance
