I was surprised to find ammonia. Now something worse. An evil parental unit is forcing me to put a sick betta in with her because they don't believe me when I say that the new betta has ich. My lfs
doesn't have much of a variety in the way of medication. They have gel tec food which doesn't work and they have assorted things to get rid of ich. That's it (this is the closest lfs
, the other one is 1 half hour away but it's bigger and better.) The white doesn't appear fuzzy but her head is usually a deep blue so white with red freckles is odd. She's being more active now after I changed 25% of her water but doesn't go all the way to the bottom which is usually where she stays unless she's breathing at the top. She sees her reflection and so after breathing she zig zags seeing what she thinks is another fish will do. I think that the wall of her tank is like a mirror. It does work like one from what I can tell. And although she stays closer to the bottom she usually uses all of the swimming space.
Water temp: 79 degrees
That's odd. The water feels cooler than that but I guess it's not. I'm trying to find a way to convince the maternal unit to return the new betta to the pet store because she won't get a good home here with what's being done for her. Anyways, I'll try and get a picture up
