Didn't you quarenteen your tetra's for two weeks before you added them with the betta? You are suppose to to avoid illness and killing your fish. Someone has thrown new fish into an established tank without qt and all the fish died in the end. I would say take them out now and start treating everyone for parasites, even the betta as he may have them now.

Sigh..You need to rehome these fish. You cannot keep them in a 2.5g in schools of 3. It just doesn't work..

Also these aren't labyrinth lung fish. You can't qt them without an air supply they need a filter. It's not like keeping a betta

okay i bought a huge bag of aquarium salt from walmart today.

i checked on the tetras who are in the seperate container and they seem like they're fine, no changes in behavior. just the worms and the weird bubble thingson them..

my dad is going to help me put aquarium salt in the container and measure it out and stuff, but should i put some in my VT's tank that the tetras used to be in? just to kill off anything that got in there from the tetras?
i dont want my betta getting sick with parasites and so far, he isnt
