Seiya...

This morning I got up and went to check on Seiya...he was on his side and even when I was standing over him, didn't get excited and wave his pectorals, or try to right himself...he just looked at me....it was time to euthanize...and now he's gone. I'm sorry my little prince...

-hugs- Thank you...

I just wish I knew what made them sick in the first place. The only thing the two shared were food and clean water. I'm guessing maybe I did just run out of luck and had a bad pack of worms and should be thankful no one else got sick.

That's probably it. I use sfbb brine shrimp with no problem, its not the best brand, but brine shrimp seem to be safer then worms. CJ knows a lot more about this though.

Thank you...and I'm not too worried. I'd rather them get here healthy than rush the process and have Simi get sick or something. Also, I'll prlly have you send the package to Curtis' mom's house - I'll double check with her, but then I wont get in trouble at work, and she'll know to be careful with the package.

We had a talk about this at the fish store yesterday. Puffer breeder, store owner, discuss breeder and myself. Bettas not the only ones that have been effected. No problems reported with SFBB Freshwater Frenzy, lord how young bettas love this product or other frozens. However there are many reports of parasite issues with the bloodworms. Not all batches or all cubes within a package even, but every once in awhile a problem is getting through the system. I have no scientific proof but lots and lots of hearsay from other aquarists.

I'll ask the PetSmart i go to if they have anything but sfbb... Going in a week for heaters, sand/gravel, hamster and snail and plants, so will look into the frozen stuff again.
