Betta Virus is closely related to another affliction I've heard of, "MTS." Multiple Tank Syndrome.

Is letting a baby betta nip your finger at feeding time a sign of infection?

Lol. I caught the bug at the beginning of January this year and mannaged to hold out till last weekend. I now own two who will be going into a 10g divided tank so I can move my new 1g QT out of the way for another 10g that I'm planning on dividing as well. However funds have run out so my two boys now will be it for a while. But I have mannaged to pass the bug to my cousin who got his first Betta with me last weekend. And I "got my grandparents one" for thier anniversary that I take care of. Is very infectious.

10G Divided - Taz (Teal/Black/White Dragon Scale VT) & Sky (Red/Black/Blue CT) 6 Panda Goras

29G - Two Jack Dempseys (Yet to be Named)

That is okay. I talk to mine all day long when I'm home. I sit on the floor by thier tanks ( have them on a bench like thing that I've had and put through some wear but still stong) and just talk away. Or I just sit and watch them for hours.

Pretty sure I'm catching the bug. I watched my bettas' tank for several hours one day. ...I've never done that with fish before.

5.5g: Rouleau - crowntail plakat male
20g tank: 4 neolamprologus multifasciatus + babies
4g: Nick - doubletail male
75g: harlequin rasbora, peacock gudgeon, green cory, red rainbowfish

I talk and give kisses to mine for hours too. Now Jewel kisses me back! It's not just her typical fish kisses, I know she's giving me kisses because her mouth opens much wider than when she's at the surface taking in some air and she's halfway between the top and bottom of the tank (or wherever I am sitting), she's looking directly at me.

I got bit by the beta bug too. I have 1 female beta and love her to bits. She is in a 2.5 gallon tank with so many plants and decorations that not all of them fit so I switch them around every once in a while. I would love to get another fish, but it takes me more than 5 hours just to do a 100 % water change and rince everything in her tank. I am quite sore when I clean her tank, not only that, I live in a nursing home and have very limited space.
