Lightbulb Ok, New Englanders, where are we?

I figured it's a smallish area, so we could swap/sell fish/equipment without shipping maybe? I know there are a couple other people in Maine. I'm right next to Dover, NH, on the border of S. Berwick, ME.

I did have an idea previously for people nearby to split a shipment of bettas with me, but unfortunately, I don't have a car atm, so that's my main comment, I guess. :p

Sorry if I repeat any "obvious" info you already know, but I like to cover all the bases, just in case.

I'm in Maine and am trying to resist buying three awesome bettas that are dying at portland Petco.. if anyone's interested..one is white/transluscent with visable patchworky veins, he reminds me of the girl in nitemare before christmas, he is a dt
also there is a white dt, and a greenish mystery tail that looks awesome...

The visible veins might indicate septicemia.

hmm, wish I had a picture, to me it looked like it has transparent skin and therefore you could see all of its veins, this fish has been there for about 3 weeks, still looks the same, young and heathy but now with the lack of water change... :(
anyways I just googled that-and couldn't find any good photos, but got creeped out anyway :D!
In any case I am wondering if betta disease is transferable to humans, I am washing out their tanks in the (gasp) kitchen sink! I have started bleaching the sink after, but I do water 100 % changes a lot, like 3 tanks every three days.

(in the fins)


It's bloody streaks or blotchy spots. It's very difficult to treat. On the other hand, maybe it's just a weird-looking fish. *shrug*
