Hmmm. What medications can you get readily on hand, in stores? What fish stuff do you have on hand?

I have:
  • Malachite Green
  • Epsom salt
  • Aq. salt (Tonic Salt)
  • Wunder tonic

=\ I am still trying to build up what I have, as I think I probably should...

No idea what wonder tonic is :p AQ salt should help, and keep in mind fungal infections like warm water while bacterial likes cold water. When I had the strange strain of columnaris that would just not go away I dropped heir temperature down to 74-76.

Tonic salt is aq. salt just a different name here =)

And thank you. I have decided to euthanize her, it's hard but I think it is what is best because I do not have the resources to help her right now and she cannot wait as she is getting worse.

Sorry to hear. At least you tried. I suggest absolutely sanitizing everything that came in contact with her and her water, just as a precautionary measure. :(

Thank you. This is very stressful right now :/

Thank you and everyone else for their help in my time of need :/

And I am totally making sure I do that! I do not want to have this experience again! =\ And then I am going to completely scape and cycle my tank again and get a new Betta, probably a male. I'm not sure though.

*sigh* The deed is done. It was all very quick but I am keeping her in the water until I get home tonight just to be safe. I can't stop crying.

I know how you feel. It really sucks! But sometimes... It has to be done.
