So, my first Betta, Pavel, died from what I believe to be a fungal infection. It took him in just 24 hours from the time I noticed something was wrong.
Since then, I have gotten a new tank and want to include two of Pavel's favourite decorations in it as a tribute.
This includes a small silk plant and one of those Betta leaf hammocks. I soaked them both overnight in boiling water from my kettle. They are currently stored in my closet. I'll rinse them again before putting them in the tank, of course.
What I want to know now is... Was the boiling enough to kill the bacteria? Or will the fungus still be present? I don't want to put any future Betta in danger of infection.
