    Exclamation Betta with Possible Bacterial Infection

    Hi everyone. My male betta has a growth on his lip; it's very large, whitish-brown, and seems to be coming out of the skin. He is having trouble eating and has stopped guarding the bubblenest (luckily the fry are able to swim short distances so they are not in immediate danger). I am guessing a bacterial infection but I'm not sure. I might be able to upload a picture but I can't right now. What do you think it could be? Treatment options? I have API general cure but I don't think that would work.



    Thank you

    I don't know anything about fish but I do know silver kills bacteria, maybe put some liquid colloidal silver in the water may help
    he is your friend and protector, he will love you unconditionally, you owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion

    I don't have that and I don't think it would be shipped in time; silver would also be toxic to my snails and maybe the fry. Thank you anyway!
