Yeah, he had severly inflamed/swollen gills last night
When I got him I was treating him for SBD but I only treated him 2 days (he was extremelly under weight so I wasnt sure if he was having trouble swimming from that or SBD), he began having trouble this esterday morning so I moved him from his 3 gal to a 1 gal QT with espm salt, once I noticed the inflamed gills I began treating him with AQ salt and extra API stress coat/water conditionor, sadly, he passed away sometime after I last checked on him (after 2am)

I'm so sorry to hear that, he was a really beautiful fish and it sounds like you did your best for him. In memory of Alpine Ice..

Aw sorry to hear it. At least he got to experience some kindness before he passed. Sometimes providing a quiet place to pass away is all we can offer. You did a wonderful thing here.

I'm so sorry you lost him, LittleBettas. I know he appreciated the loving care you gave him though.

thank you Sakura8
I think I see a pattern developing though... I was new at bettas when I had Chance so I dont know if he had the same swollen gills, but behaviorally, both Chance and Alpine acted the same near the end.... both were EXTREMELLY skinny, ike the unnamed dal guy I have now... all three came from the same walmart.. I am watching my dal like a hawk,his poops seems good (but so was Alpine's) Im starting the dal on parasite treatment... but if he starts going through the same symptons???
:/

I think the parasite treatment is the best course, you're doing the right thing. It definitely sounds like there's something going on at that Wal-Mart so it's best to knock it out before the dal has a chance to get like Chance and Alpine.

Yeah, Im going to go ahead and start my new purple butterfly on parasite treatment tonight to, just in case, I emailed the store about Hurricane having parasites, but I think Im going to go talk to the manager tomorrow about it since I didnt get a response...
Hopefully parasite treatment works...
