heh! though with all the bacterials hitting everything lately I look to meds more often, I really feel uncomfortable with hit and miss diagnosis. But if I wait until I am sure, they are guarranteed to get dropsy within a day of figgerin it out.
Frayed fins are my least concern, at least one betta here chases and bites it's own caudal and dorsal.
have them floating in a soup of meds so they can fall victim to the first thing down the road.
This plague was rough, I am so tired of nursing sick fish....it is disheartening
pretty much now with a single exception, all that made it to over in inch by now are healthy and all the betta that were kinda small for their age are dead. With the final fry the number stayed the same. And most of them are nearly as big or bigger than some of the fish she got this feb and mar.
We are in full panic state here now. She is changing the mintanks daily with the aged water we keep for discus and gourami, she tests frequently and there is a separate feeding stick per tank. They are poured/dipped into holding bowls. Glass for easy sterilization. By the time she starts her breeding program at the end of this month, half her most important fish will be gone
