:') I'm going to move Valentine and Winter into Brent and Skyden's old tanks, out of my 8 fish (before they died, I now have six) Brent, Skyden, Garland, Ornament and Tinsel are in my room and Heather, Valentine and Winter are in the bathroom, spare bedroom and my moms room. Be nice to bring them back in and have almost all of my fish in the room with me.

Don't worry, I won't! Letting the tanks soak in water over-night and then re-doing them with new water etc. and gonna let them float in their cups for a few hours.

I'm pretty sure it's because of the water conditioner. I had never used that brand before, and Brent and Skyden where the only two fish that got water changes that day. Their water temps were 74, so it wasn't that, I let them float in their cups for a few hours before I put them in and they were fine in the cups.

74 is a bit cold but certainly not cold enough to cause their deaths. They thrive in 78-80.

Again I'm so sorry for your loss :(
I hope your bettas like it in your room! :)

What brand? Just so we all know not to buy it, since it was responsible for the death of the two most beautiful, talented, friendly bettas in the whole wide world.

You will be missed. :*(

Weren't Skyden and Brent the superstars in the great tail war? I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could say something to help, but only time will help.

So sorry for your loss :(
I am also wondering what kind of the water conditioner did you use. I thought that water conditioner can't be expired? Not sure. Well unless it like 6-7 year… I am using the same conditioner for like 2 years now. Sometimes they don't even put exp date on the bottle.

Silly question but are you sure you use it? I am always paranoid that i forgot to put water conditioner.
Did you do 100% water changes? Was new water temperature was a lot of different then their water? Like you wrote take time to acclimate them to the new temp/chemistry next time. I personally don’t take a lot of time to acclimate because I am using aged water so new water temp is exactly the same as their water. I just have fish in the changing cup and add new water for like 3 times and let them used to it for like 5-10 min each time when I add it.
Make sure you always leave space between the tank/container if you leave them there so they don’t jump out. I have my bettas for a little more than 3 years and I had one jumped out before.

You have to remove the fishes when placing water conditioner atleast for 6 hours.

Sorry for your loss..
