Sorry for all your losses :( That is really unfotunate. If it was the entire batch of bettas hasn't the pet store gotten multiple complaints and done something about it?

I also suggest getting Seachem Prime for your water conditioner...its extrememly potent and lasts for ages (you only need 1-2 drops per gallon, I use 2). It helps with the slime coat as well but you can add in some StressCoat which has aloe in it. I only use Stresscoat when I am treating my betta in his hospital tank, though.

Thanks. You'd think they would have. I haven't heard anything about complaints though. It happened with the fish from two different PetSmarts. I wonder if it's the same supplier. Not getting another from either store again. I did end up buying Seachem Prime.

i think it good idea to check the water in the store. How is your guppy doing?
Also if your water is fine i think your last resort you can order betta from breeder. It a few people on this forum who breeds them and it safe to buy betta from them. Let me know if you need help. Sorry for all trouble that you have.
