If you scroll down through different sections when logging on to this forum.. you will see " Tropical fish diseases" and stickies at the top that say..please read before posting.
Answer's to these question's, save other member's from asking 20 question's or specualting when answer's can help identify/eliminate possible problem's.
Same thing's that contribute to health or poor health of fishes are same for nearly all species we keep in closed system's .
Betta's are no different, with exception possibly of airbourne contaminates affecting them more readily, due to their ability to take oxygen from atmosphere.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Anyways, it doesn't mater which section, someone asks a question we (should try) answering it. Some people are new, some people are in a haste, sometimes cannot find the "read this for common diseases". I know this because I've seen (and answered) dozens of ich questions

OP how's the fish?

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Question's have already been asked in the Tropical Fish disease section and answer's to those question's and section in particular do matter, as I stated in previous post regardless of your thought's to the contrary.
Is why the new folk's are often asked to view that section if they are new,lost.
Lazy folk's, or people in a hurry ,ain't gonna pay no never mind anyhoo.

Yes, but you're saying you don't like the repetitive questions? lol nevermind

But I do agree...water changes do help. Especially if the water has not been tested and there could be ammonia or other lethal things in the water.

No,,Is not what I said.
I suggested answering a specific group of questions at the top of Tropical fish
disease section, so that other member's can more easily,more quickly, provide possible help by eliminating, or identifying, possible problems or thing's that may be contributing to the fishes health while avoiding asking the very same question's.
Answering these question's ahead of time saves time and possible help can be given much quicker.
Question's are only repetitive when you need to ask for the answer's with each new poster with a problem.
Is good that we can agree that water changes are very good first line of defense, for it is estimated that nearly all fish related Illness can be attributed enviornmental issues (ie) water quality, or lack thereof.

I'm sorry. At the time I was on the Betta forums. I wasn't actually on Tropicalfishkeeping. So I posted where I thought it fit best.

Regardless, it died this afternoon. So. Thanks anyway.

Awww that sucks :( Sometimes you just get sick fish...you know? For me if I were to get balloon mollies, or mollies, I'd have to make sure they were ALL active and healthy looking. But, sometimes they don't even show it..
