"purp" Purple, sorority girl

best stock photo, week or so ago.
She's sleepy and wondering what the camera is.

2-27-2011, 8 months old. Probably from that infection you see on her, nothing has treated it successfully. She died during tank stress that isn't affecting any other girls.

Purp was a rather quiet fish but she liked to startle the algae eater, I brought she and Blu home together.

I don't know if I've mentioned it but I keep a few ferns outside my door in a spot that I can't get the mower into, I put down a bunch of that chipped plastic tank bottom a long time ago and the cats don't like it because it sticks in their paws. All my little ones end up with the ferns.

Aww, i'm sorry she passed from your care. :(
She is cute, it sounds like she was a sweet betta with a likable personality.

Other than taunting the algae eater she was great.
Sadly her sisters Blue, Rose, Petals, Fins and Twinkle have followed her by saturday lunchtime.

I now know that dot on her side is (was) pseudomona and its eating the rest of the girls through their labyrinth glands.

Got what I can use in the tank, have kana on order but it looks like I'm going to lose all the girls and a king male (who is meanwhile very happy in the tank). Running UV, triple-sulfa, furan-2 and a partial dose of polyguard in the hopes that I can stall until the meds come.
