Well it really didn't work the betta fix, he died on Friday afternoon, 12-19-08.
Many thanks to all.
Bye

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, but that was one *very* sick fish.

Sometimes it's possible to diagnose and treat illness in a fish early on, but in the advanced stages like that sometimes there's just nothing you can do. If your fish is very obviously in a lot of pain and isn't responding to treatment, sometimes it's better to euthanize them than to let them suffer. Here's an article on how to humanely euthanize a fish, if you are ever in a situation like that again:

I'm very sorry for your loss :( He was VERY sick, so I doubt that there was really much you could do to help him at that point. Sometimes things just happen. My first betta died of a stubborn case of fin rot that went systemic. Poor thing. But, now I have a new very happy and healthy betta and I have learned quite a bit about treating diseases. Best wishes.
