It's very frustrating. Especially when people doubt the information that's given. I guess he just needs time...I hope he's not too stressed. I don't have an tannins especially not dry ones with all the rain I've had in the past 2 days.

WOW, I've never seen a water conditioner that recommends 48 drops!

The ones I use are like 2-3 drops/per gallon I think.

I'll check mine tomorrow.

Nevermind, the one I'm using right now is Jungle - Start Right

It's in a crystal formulation. 1 tsp for every 5 gallons of water.



BTW, since you posted a picture of the conditioner instructions, could you post a picture of the tank your betta is currently housed in?

I housed mine in 1/2 gallon maybe smaller, and they were fine. They ate like crazy.

Now they're in a sorority tank together.

Yeah- before I saw the photo I couldn't believe that either! Prime is like 1 drop, and before I had that, I had Novaquel/Amquel and even those were something like 10 drops per gallon.

Wowzers! 48.

I just left for church but I will get one today sometime. But I can explain it. It's a 1 gallon Tetra with a Top Fin heater rated for 5 gallons, green gravel, a red silk plant, and a log.

I understand. I honestly didn't mean to doubt you. I had just never heard of that many drops. I hope he is doing better today.

He really isn't. Still sitting at the top, unresponsive. I don't know what to do.

Sometimes it can take a while for a betta to settle in.

It took one of my males a few months before he would stop hiding from me when I so much as looked at him.

Keep wherever he is dark to help him out and make sure it's in a quiet place. sound produces vibration, so he'll feel those if a sound in pretty loud.

Give him a few more days before expecting him to be all over the place.

Well. He died. So I guess it doesn't matter. Thanks, though.
