You can get Maracyn cheaper if you can find a smaller package. Sounds like all you could find was the 25 dose one or something like that. There's a 5 dose one that should cost much less. But Maracyn isn't a very effective med anymore.

If you dose the AQ salt right (1 tsp per gallon), it shouldn't harm him any more than the Melafix would.

Columnaris? Yikes! Do you think that is what he has? I hate that bacterial disease. It's a real pain!

Swish looks like his scales are sticking out ever so slightly. I hope he gets better. That happened to him once before, and I had no clue what it was and I left it as it was (2 years ago, first betta, you get the picture).
Ill change the wter today, then monday, then we leave for a week.

MistersMom, is your betta acting normal? Did the gray start suddenly and is it spreading rapidly? If he's acting normal and the gray isn't spreading rapidly, then it is probably natural coloring.
