Hey ya'lls. I was referred here after a few tragic betta deaths due to unknown reasons. I am still a bit frustrated, but I am still stuck on bettas since my first had so much personality before his untimely demise.
I have a 5 gal, cycled, filtered, and planted with its resident otocinclus that was unaffected by the same disease that disposed my poor bettas.. 2 which did not last 72 hrs... (not in the tank at the same time, 1st died, then a week later got a 2nd.. and now no betta just my lil'dude oto) I gave up on petstores and hoping new betta to be from the breeder will not have similar issues.
My levels are 0/0/10ppm as per yesterday testing.
Sorry for the mini rant, I was just really upset about their deaths... Anyhoo, I am still looking forward to betta keeping and hopefully I can soon forget the bad experience with the last two betta dudes! I currently live in NC and am a full time med student and when I am not studying I try read all things fishy, knit, take care of my awesome dog, and attempt to cook to feed hubby and myself :)
