Good luck with your fish friend!

Rachelle, he is looking good. :) Definitely keep up with the Kanaplex for the rest of the course and then perhaps another course to be safe. With bacterial infections, you never want to stop the medication too soon or the bacteria can come back more resistant than ever. Yes, Kanaplex can be hard on the kidneys but it must be overdosed and abused to do damage so a second course will be safe for him.

Ohhh he does look a bit better! I'm sorry that you're both going through this, but I want to thank you as my betta started showing the exact same symptoms lately and the garlic has helped immensely.

Hoping all our bettas will make progress!

Oh no! You too!

Man, this is nuts. Who would have thought that giving these guys proper care could hurt them?!

Fantastic! So I started him up on the 7th, so I'll keep him in there until the 21st? So two straight weeks of kanaplex and Epson salts. I've been replacing the water (about a gallon) every other day. I can't believe this is working!

Yes, that sounds about right for the length of treatment. Go, little buddy, go!

What does white poo mean?

I'm changing his water right now, and noticed that all the poos floating in his tank are brown and normal.. but he's in the middle of pooping out something totally white?

Is this just from the antibiotics?
