I have 2 bettas both of them have white spots on their bodies and fins.
I got a blue liquid from a LFS. The shopkeeper told me to add 4-5 drops of the liquid in approx 500ml of water and dip the bettas in it for 20min and then put them back in fresh water.
I have done this and also added a thermostat and now the temperature has been increased to 25 deg C. It was on the lower side earlier.
The person also told me to check the water temperature and if the water feels normal to the hand, its ok.
After increasing the temperature, the white spots have suddenly increased. Pl. guide what to do.
Can I increase the temperature further? Is the process being done correct? The bettas have stopped eating as well.

does that look like salt granules sprinkled all over the betta's body?? If so, then its ICH, seperate them from any other fish that you have put them with. Ask for medicine that treats ICH, raise the temp to 27 C or 28C. Keep up the water changes and that should do it.

Thanks for the reply. I treated it for ich with a blue liquiud I got from the LFS. The temperature was increased too. The white spots increased in numbers with the temperature rise. They looked better the next day but unfortuantely both the bettas died day before yesterday.
