This is what a quick google search came up with for ingredients...

3 cups unbleached flour (Not good for water quality)
2 tsp. baking powder (No idea... Probably not good though)
1 tsp. salt (Too much salt isn't good for a betta's digestion)
4-6 Tbsp. vegetable shortening or lard (Um... that can't be good...)
about 1 1/4 cups warm water

If the ingredients didn't kill him, the debris that leeched into the water did. Tortilla's break apart pretty easily and it would be almost impossible not to have some remnants of it in the water.

Yikes. You're making me feel like a fish torturer :P

Could that really have hurt him so much later, though? It had been a couple of months since he went anywhere near a tortilla. Can these things have such long-lasting ramifications?

Good question... I don't know, really. It could have damaged something internally and caused a gradual downward spiral. Hard to say.

Hmm. True. Yikes, that doesn't make me feel much better.

Thank you very much for your help. I'll make sure not to feed my new fish tortillas.
