OMG!! my betta, Alfred is finally...... BETTER! I had to get a different tank (4 gallon critter keeper) not use any gravel, All thats in his tank is a cave, and a fake plant. he gets twice a week partial water changes. It was stressfull at first. I treated him with medicine for fin-rot, flukes, and fungis, he looks great, like nothing was ever wrong. he blows large bubble nests all the time, and is a spoiled rotton brat! lol! anyway, just wanted to share he is ALMOST ALL THE WAY recovered! I want to keep his tank barebottom tho cuz I think it won't gather quite as much bactiria.
