Ask if you can get the meds while you are out. This disease moves fast. I wouldn't euthanize until they become compleatly lifeless. Try to get the meds. Explain that these fish are expensive and you would have to start over.
Hey lebron. Hang in there. I'm right there with you. My sorority crashed this week and I have had no new fish, chemicals, anything. I lost eight girls in three days and have five left. Had them for two years with no problem. No idea what happened, no disease evidence other than clamping. No obvious equipment malfunction. Quarantine seemed to have slowed down the deaths though. Best of luck friend
remove all fish from tank, let tank run for 3 weeks + (at least for my last outbreak) and acclimate and introduce fish then.
Columnaris is an opportunistic disease and can prey on stressed fish. Maybe your guppies are stressing out the betta or it is too small space for everything in it. It is present in the water column. You can do 100% WC, if your tank is not too big, or couple of 50% to lower the nitrate as well.
Invertebrae are fine in a columnaris tank and they are not affected. My amano and RCS thrive and are hardier than the betta.
Okay, so Fungus Clear and the Furan 2 are perfectly okay? I surprisingly don't have a Walmart near me, under an hour of driving. Honey (a girl), her mouth is decomposing. Some little fungus on it, too. I need to go!! :(
Shirley, I'm sorry!! Best of luck to you too!
Otterfun, thank you for the advice! It is a 20G, with a filter rated for a bigger tank. (30G) I'll clean the tank really once I treat the tank.
