Down to five bettas. Just three girls and two boys left and one of them (Kirjava) is sick. The symptons developed the exact same way as Lucina and Tiki'. She was fine and then two or three hours later, she had a big ol' sore in her side. So, yep, the disease is still alive and well. It has to be some kind of columnaris, but columnaris treatments don't work and we have no idea how it is jumping from tank to tank.
We found Kirjava on a dusty shelf with two other bettas and got her for half price because she was colorless and missing a ventral and the pet shop owner just wanted the "ugly thing gone." She ended up brightening up overnight and we discovered that she wasn't completely colorless afterall. Wish I had taken more pictures of our sorority girls, but this is one of the only pictures I have of her.
I think I'm just going to set up a simple NPT with some guppies after this is over. I was going to breed my bettas this year, but I don't think I have the heart to do it now and, plus, I would have to find a new pair. I do really like the look of Black Moscows. I want some fish babies. ):
