What are your water parameters? What is the water changes schedule?
Yeah, I still have more bettas. I have a small (6 fish, 32 gallon) sorority, a little white male(Darek), a yellow male(Scorpius), and the two family fish(Kujo and unnamed) and a supposedly-female male plaket(Not-Heather)The only fish Rubiks and Riddle were kept with was actually an ADF. Rubiks, Riddle and Perceus were kept years ago- I don't even think I acclimated those three. At that point I was running off rare to no water changes. The frog is still alive today, somehow. May was about 2 years or so old when she passed, I don't know how as I was staying with family. I was told she died when I came back. I found her stark white at the bottom of the tank. As for now, I do water changes weekly with my fish. My PH is about 6.5 -6.8. Hope was a girl in an overcrowded gourami/sorority tank and hadn't been acting right since she was even caught. When I got her home, I put her in a little gallon bowl for quarantine, but she didn't make it.

Female bettas: Clover, 5 unnamed
Male bettas: Kujo, Sebastion, Scorpius, Not-Heather, 1 unnamed
RIP: May, Perceus, Riddle, Rubiks, Hope

*crying so hard* I accidently boiled my fish. This made me feel better after shoving my fish in the mud and attempting to bury it.

Oh my god I really cried when I read this. It reminded me of my old dog, Dodo, who has spent his whole life with me. I always thought I could take pictures with him and the rest of my family when I graduated from college, but he passed away right before my graduation. I really miss him.
And I miss my first Betta, Meatball, too. Hope both of them well over the rainbow bridge.
