So i been breeding bettas for about six month and have about 400 fish including fry and about a month ago switched food from Hikari betta gold to NLS betta formula without any problems and lately a lot of my fish bin getting clumped fins then die shortly after. I am seeing no other symptoms then the clumped fins. Today one of my prized ee breeders developed dropsy but not sure if its related. Most of the sick fish eat till right before they die. All my fry who eat mostly bbs are fine as well as my pre adult grow out tank. I'm thinking something changed in my tap water or I got a bad batch of NLS. I am going to the pet store right now and get a water test kit some aq salt and maybe some antibiotics i am also going stop by the IAL tree and grab some leaves. Not really sure what I'm dealing with? Please help some of my very expensive breeders are not looking good!
