I bought a new Butterfly HM betta last week. I knew something was wrong with him when I got him. I couldn't work it out but I noticed a gold area on his belly this morning,so I shined a light on him and vola!!! He has a fine gold dust coating over him. So I have heard that Copper-based medications are the best treatment however they are difficult to get hold of here, I can buy them on the net but he needs treating quickly. I was thinking of using Malachite Green as I have heard that it is quite good and also that some white spot medications are useful in the treatment of this disease.
I was just wondering if anyone has any other suggestions?
