If you rinse the larvae under cold running water for several seconds, it should purge it and make it clean enough.

I'll get my hubby to catch some when he gets off of work. Thank you for the suggestion. I just wish there was something to just make him magically better..

He's so lifeless. I'm starting to think it would be best if he went ahead and passed.

:( Sadly, I know that feeling. They don't look like they will get better so you start hoping they pass so they don't suffer. I hate that feeling. I'm sorry, Elizabeth. :(

He's still in the same condition. I just did a water change, and he was swimming without difficulty. As soon as he knew he was safe again, he went under his little bridge and went back to sleep.

I am going to be setting up a 3g mini half moon aquarium on Tuesday. Could I move him to that to make it easier than floating him in another tank?

Sure. I don't see why not. As long as he can reach the surface to breathe, he'll be fine and maybe even start to feel better because it's a new environment. Who knows?

Poor little guy..
He's always the sweetest fish, and he's my first pet.

*hugs* I'm sorry. He might pull out of it. Bettas can go for a long time without eating. One day he might wake up and decide he feels okay and wants to eat. Just keep trying. :)
