You can always put Blueberry into a small cup and float him in Cheshire's tank to keep him warm. Otherwise, put Blueberry's tank in the warmest area you can and wrap a towel around it.

Yeah, those heaters are expensive. I really don't want to think about how much money I have spent on my 20+ adjustable 25w heaters. *looks at empty wallet*

I don't think that is a good idea, Blueberry is clear of Ich while Cheshire is swarmed. I don't want to risk infection.

I think I'll slowly save up for 2 more lol. So far he's fine, such a trooper :3

Yeah, that is a danger but as long as Cheshire's water doesn't get into Blueberry's cup, it's always an option if the temp really dips low.

Day 4: bad news good news.

Good news is that Cheshire is slowly overcoming his Ich, bad news... Aquilies has developed a strange silvery patch on his fin since this morning... I think it could be the mystery disease that strikes blue bettas... oh please don't be I think I'm going to cry...

If it proceeds very rapidly and starts to cover his whole body within hours, then chances are it is. If, on the other hand, the discoloration stays small then it is most likely fin rot or ammonia burn.

The water is being changed daily 50%, medication is still in the water against rot as well as aq salt... I don't think it is either...

If it is a resistant strain of rot, it could still be present even with meds and water changes. Fin rot can be caused by various different bacteria and some are more resistant to treatment than others. Let's hope that's all it is.

over night it has grown. It's almost reached the body... It's practically taken over the the little remainder of his tail

About 9 hours has passed... is it considered fast advancing?
