    Prayers for Flame!

    Flame, my beautiful male betta, is sick. I can't tell but my dad can. He put medicine in the water and hopefully it would help. He is swimming a bit better then he was. My dad is going to clean the tank so that will help to! Can you keep him in your thoughts?

    You should add some fresh water aquarium salt to the tank slowly and turn up the heat to 80 degrees, if you use a heater. That combo works for killing a lot of aliments. It's my experience that the medicine sometimes makes things worse.

    Good luck with Flame and he will be in my prayers.

    Get well soon, Flame!

    I agree, make sure you don't over-medicate because that will stress him out even more. It depends on the illness what kind of treatment you use... if it's bacterial or fungus, you will want to turn OFF the heater and treat with salt and/or anti-fungus meds. Here's a site with a lot of common Betta diseases ~
