Oh great. I lost a sorority girl due to unknown causes. Hope it doesn't kill the remaining 3.

How long should I give a break between furan and maracyn plus?

Sorry Furan 2 didn't work and sorry you can't find Kanaplex :( Hope the Maracyn Plus works for you!

Are you treating in a quarantine? If you are do a 100% change and dose right away. If you're doing in tank run fresh carbon in your filter 12-24 hours, take it out and then have a go with the Maracyn. I'd treat for 2 weeks at this point, which is two full rounds (one full round is treating on days 1,3, 5), but you should see serious improvement after the first round. The second would be to complete or to prevent a relapse.

So one of my girls is starting to look a lot better, all the fuzz is gone, and she's eating and swimming around. But her mouth still looks weird? Going to post a pic of before she was sick and a pic of now of her just to see if anyone knows if this is normal and if it will go away? Kind of looks like some of her mouth was eaten away and now its open all the time??

Thanks for looking again :)
The moUth kind of looks like its either curled inwards or got eaten away. But I'm happy she has survived and is eating again.
Im going to keep the maracyn plus and epsom treatment going till it says to stop and then let the tank have a rest but keep a close eye on it. Hopefully I can start to condition her here in the next few weeks, or find another quality CT female to buy and spawn so I can have some ready to go in the spring

Nobody else is sick, but I've lost so many of them from this that I'm down to my last pair

I know you might have already solved the problem but here is a link that I found very useful when it comes to Betta Disease. I pray I don't get in trouble for this but it's too good of information not to share.

Wow thanks! I've looked at quite a few different disease charts and things, but that actually looks like it goes well in depth! Thanks! Definitely going to have to bookmark this one! (and I hope you don't get in trouble, I don't imagine why you would)
