I finally caught it today, full blown. I don't think I will ever recover.

I just realized I had this. after almost a year of a very minor infection (hasn't gotten far enough as to actually extend to multiple bettas, but definitely the obsession and looking for another) and it seems the virus is now able to spread via the internet.

happy owner of a wild type GFP axolotl named Percival and too many guppies to count.

News Flash : Some websites and forums such as bettafish.com and aquabid.com, are "clinically" proven to "spread the virus further and "shorten" the "incubation" period". It is not advisable to visit these 2 sites so often, due to "hazardous" contents. LOL

There is no cure for this disease. Lack of money won't even cure it. Lol

there is a vaccine, unfortunately its just as space consuming as aquariums.
option A, have enough small tanks that WC scheds keep you too busy.
B, get other larger enclosures for non-fish pets.
C, have the tanks occupy every avialable "vacant" spots you dont use in your daily life.

the problem with the approach is that when an open spot comes up to replace the current pets, its bound to be filled in with replacements.

for me the monetary factor is moot, tank space is the main ailment for me.

I definitely have this. And Dramaqueen is soooo very right- lack of funds doesn't even cure it. I am soon to have betta #8 and, of course, I have promised myself NO MORE after this one.

My lovely bettas are: Dagger, Egg, Salsa, Marble, Augustus, Miles
Puddles, Oz, Nate, Monkey, Picasso, Feng, and Maui

What kind of infection do you call that?


If we are made of cells, then a scientist who studies cells is actually a group of cells studying themcells!
