Ok, after treating it, am I supposed to do any water changes, or be treating it daily, etc? I can't seem to find that information anywhere I look.

On the fungus cure, just make sure to take the carbon out of the filter, and retreat after 48 hrs. I'm not positive if you change the water in between, I did, but in a much much smaller tank without a filter.

I finally have time to post! And i've stopped 'dip' treating him lol. :)

My 10 gallon started leaking (the glue was not on well), luckily I was able to return it. So now i'm cycling another 10 gallon I just purchased yesterday.

Little Guy is being treated in his 1 gallon, he's is doing absolutely great. I've caught him doing what I call a 'flare' dance, he'll flare slightly and wiggle in place? As for his fins, I see a clear/light bright blue outline on all of them, is that good/progress?

Picture updates!

*** LOL not sure why the pictures keep posting upside down, i'll rotate them next time!

oh wow, his fins look SO much better! I can't believe the mother let her 4 year olds fish get this bad (btw I have a 4 year old who ALSO has a betta, and while it is my "sons betta", 4 year olds can't even properly care for themselves yet, much less a fish!) Also, I have a betta that likes to swim the current in his filter just like yours! I'm so glad this little fish's luck finally turned around and he is getting the good life now!

I'm SO glad to see him getting better, too!

He's doing just fine (in general+with the treatments), haven't been able to get at least a halfway decent picture though lol. Not as easy to get a body shot in the little 1 gallon, especially since he goes crazy if he sees me. The auto-focus on my iPhone takes a while and when it finally adjusts, he's on the move again!

Don't worry, i'll be keeping you all up-dated! :)

I ordered several more live plants that should be arriving soon- can't wait to put Little Guy back into a 10 gallon and watch him explore.
