Seems legit.
omg gotta stop with these XD


I have a question.

Baller's seemingly gotten over his horrible bout with resistant fin rot. Yay!

But Im still very nervous, so Id like to treat him with Jungle Fungus Cure for a bit for the rot, after he's been on Maracyn.

Should I?

Why does "Jungle Fungus Cure" sound like one of those exotic drinks that you will regret drinking after finding a strange woman/man in your bed the next morning?

No? Is that just me? >_>

WELL, looks like I need some sleep *coughs awkwardly and leaves*

Ughh, eww.

Nah, its pretty good stuff! Its srsbsns, and actually gets my (rare) seal of approval.

I just dont wanna hit him too hard or anything, even though he's feeling pretty good, eating, swimming, all happy. I realllyyy dont want that psycho rot to come back,though.

is there any difference between goldfish bowl conditioner and betta water conditioner? the goldfish conditioner deals with ammonia and chlorine while nutrafin betta conditioner doesnt seem to bother neutralizing ammonia. im asking bc thats the remaining stock i have with 1 betta conditioner. after that i'll get prime conditioner if goldfish bowl conditioner is insufficient.

oh geeze it does actually D: -beats head against desk- DX
that amused me ;-;"

but yeah, I heard it's supposed to be good x3
on the other hand they say don't use it unless you HAVE to. and that large water changes every day are better.
but if it was SUPER bad it might be different.... MAYBE, I'm not sure ><
you might ask OFL, I have a feeling she'd say just water changes though... if he's healed up he should be alright.... lots of water changes, good feeding, if you do only use pellets maybe substitute some freeze-dried bloodworms for nutrients and whatnot... and keep the current way down for fragile fins, my little guy had a tear that was almost healed up and the water evaporated a little low and caused a strong current and it ripped back D: so watch that. but he should be better if he's on the mend :D watch closely ^-^

Usually, no. Conditioner is conditioner. If it removes chlorine at least and better yet heavy metals, its doing its job.

However, that goldfish stuff you seem to have found has some sort of ammonia neutralizer l=much like Prime does. Most products dont do that, so its nice.
If it removes the chlorine and heavy metals, its good. If it also removes ammonia, well then! Its even better.

Once you run out, Prime is a great option. You can use either conditioner just fine.

I had him on an aggressive salt regimen, but this rot was progressed through an injury to the point where it didnt cut it. Poor guy's fins were gnawed away.
Im nervous about this awful strain because of how aggressive it was, and want it to be DONE and not come back! D;

If I did* do it, Id wait a few days for him to just have clean water.

Is it safe to dose water with prime and 24 hours later add clear water? The chemicals wont be too much for a betta?
Also when using prime its dosage is for huge tanks. How many drops would i need per 1 gallon jug?

Okay. So I put the AQ salt in a 1G bucket and mixed it really well. And shook it to the best of my ability. (bucket, and it is dechlor) So when I come back from school I'll put my betta in his QT jug (attached to side of tank). Should I acclimate him?
