I haven't been around for a couple of month. My life has been a mess for various reasons so I have tried to simplify and staying off of forums made life easier. Didn't have to check replies etc...
But my fishies aren't doing well :( One of my guys, Slimer, became emaciated and I treated him for parasites, internal bacteria, you name it, and nothing worked. I eventually had to euthanize him. I treated the other guys at the same time to be proactive, but apparently it wasn't effective. My two favorite fish look like they have maybe one week left before they will either die or I will have to put them down. And I noticed today that another one has stringy white poo.
I've done all I can to try to figure this out, but apparently it is beyond my control :( I think there might be something in our water since it happened all of a sudden. The bettas at my local Petco (where I worked this summer) have also been dying in mass numbers right after they arrive and they get them settled in their own cups. They've had about a 50% die off rate even though they take great care of them. And we share the same water source.
My personal life is getting back on track, but I am done with bettas. Too many variables and too hard having to euthanize them.
Sorry for the sad updates :(
