I've had TarTar, my blackish moor, almost 8 months. He's not really black anymore but that isn't the issue. He's developed this fluid filled sack at the starting of his top tail fins (fantail). It got about the size of a dime then burst, the top fins are to the point of falling off they are extremely blood red and painful. Its been 6 days and the fluid filled sack is filling again except it looks shinny. Almost like a silver pearl inside. My pictures arnt very good. But he's very hungry all the time but I leave his sight and he's laying again on his chest/face. There is about 1cm of white around the wound area and now looks like cotton growing off one of ripped off areas of his tail where the cysy? was. Or is, since its coming back today. Sometimes he's jerking really hard left to right and to be honest its breaking my heart to see him in pain. What do I do? Been treating with kosher salt, then life guard all in 1. His poop has been yellowish green, but his favorite food is peas. But its mucusy and big and takes forever to drop from him then he always tries to eat it.

Let me be honest to the point of shame. To small for him!! 3 gallon. I've tried to re-home him since I started googling what he was because I knew I didn't have what he needs to be "happy and healthy". My son brought him
After his betta had died. He had it for just shy of 5 years. Love is love and the more u give the more u get. I have to change the water every other day at least 50% because otherwise I don't think anyone would like the smell. He has a filter but nothing like I think he needs. Absolutely no way to test those things because honestly I just discovered it was more then just "needed" his top tailfins are almost entirely gone up to the point where they would be separating to form the fantail.he holds it to 1 side mostly and yesterday I think I seen a long about 3mm long white/clearish thingon the side of his head where his gills open. I think he's clamping his top fin. He's super spunky still. Infact was "spitting" water bubbles at me today. I think that's him saying I love you. I feel awful and wish someone would take him and actually help him. I love him enough to want that for him.
