Thank you, Blu.

Melano boy is not looking so hot today. He is down again and the pineconing is even more severe. He looks rather pale. I am not very confident about a good outcome... I wonder what happened? Sigh.

Positive vibes are very appreciated, Blu. He was laying on his side/in a head down postion for most of today, but he has managed to right himself again now. He is still sort of sitting/resting, but at least he is able to stay upright and is not keeled over? I cupped him so he can get to the surface and breathe easier. Pineconing looks very serious.

Oh wow. That really severe. I think you may have posted it already and I forgot but what are you using to medicate him? Poor guy :( I hope he feels better, the trick is to try to catch and demolish dropsy at its early stage.

Kanaplex and epsom salt mainly. Was going to give him the last dose together, but he passed away around noon (I know he was still alive at 8 am). SIP darling fish.

I lost the one half of both my actual breeding pairs (the dalmatian HMPK female for my fancy spotted HMPK male and the melano HM male for my super black HM female), so now I need to reevaluate.

I'm sorry for your loses. Perhaps the higher powers (of betta wonders) want you to try something different and new with breeding, maybe you should consider breeding the two that are left? What sort of babies would they make? I love genetics and working with dominant and receive genes to figure out ratios/% for offspring traits but have not learned which traits are dominant or recessive in betta genetics yet (as soon as I start looking I'd want to test it with breeding and don't have the time or space for that).

I hadn't thought of that, actually. The male and female that remain would indeed make a very interesting pair. They are so different and I have honestly no idea what they would throw... But I guess it could be worth a shot? These are the sellers' pictures.

Fancy HMPK Male



DTPK x HM Female (I know she looks hunchbacked in this photo, but her topline looks fine in person)
