You should crosspost this thread on the "Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies" subforum. It might leaven some of the desperation there, although someone might tell you to go drop some epsom salts or smoke some IAL--or something along those lines.

epsom baths... lol

Some catch the disease more severely than others, a severe case leads to betta breeding, and fish into the double digits.

We're on 9, and adopting 3 more from Aemaki... lol

well, bathrooms are pretty bright so you'll have lots of options for plants! Just make sure to cycle the bath before you get into it

"isn't there a vaccine???" unfortunately not, getting a vaccine such as..seeing your friends fish/es, trying to make yourself immune to their look...will only makes things worst LOL.
"also is it true it can be passed down to offspring?" If your offspring/s grow up while you're infected, this is highly possible :P
"nailed it. I have 3 and counting...." you'll keep counting LOL
"I have 2 bettas and the want and potential for a third. " Just wait LOL
I've been trying to stay away whenever I was "cured", and last time I remember when I got infected again, made a promise to myself "5 max, no breeding". But here I am, breaking my own promise again and ended up with..youngsters/adults ( around 40 -50, I don't count, only reminds me of how many times my "promise" multiplied itself ), and now 2 more fries tanks...sigh...

I have 3 now and I would probably have 10 if I had space. I'm moving to Michigan soon, though, and absolutely plan to go nuts and get 2 or 3 large tanks since I'll have room. :D
