Oh my. I'm so sorry you're still dealing with this. I'm sending good fishy wishes your way and keeping my fingers crossed for you. I hope you're able to save some of your buddies.

RIP Poseidon. You were loved.

I cleaned 7 tanks today (I clean all by hand) and everyone is doing great. They are all pooping normally and eating. There's just one fish, my oldest that had a little stringy poop but I saw him poop today and it was back to normal. I would think if it was that contagious that all of my fish would have it by now. It's been a couple weeks.

If you have a parasite, as you stated.

I am not there, I only know what you state,

If it was the Camalanus parasite everything would be indeed infected!
Did you know it can take 6 months before it even begins to show itself?
Not all fish will show it in their poo either until they are more heavily infected.

Obviously if all is well then maybe you didn't have a parasite as you thought.

Do a search on the camalanus worm, It's oft times refered to by people as the Devil's worm.

I'm glad things appear better for you,
Hopefully all will continue well for you..

Here's my first thread with pictures when I first saw Eclipse's stringy poop. http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=37581 I'm really hoping it isn't a parasite, but I've had him for 5 or 6 months and have had no problems, but like you said, it could take 6 months until it showed. Thank you so much for your help and I will definitely look into more about it so I'll know what to look for and I'll be ready!
