I was just wondering, how often
do bettas get sick/diseases?
My first boy, Junior, has always been perfectly healthy (although I got paranoid and thought he had velvet when I first got him, so I treated him with some Coppersafe and aq. salt.)
Anyway, I just got two new boys and I'm currently treating one's tank with Coppersafe, after seeing what appeared to be salt- grains on his head (Ick?). And with the other one, I'm suspecting velvet.

I'm wondering if a lot of fish come from the pet store with diseases (these guys came from Petsmart).
