Sorry for your loss...

Do a really good clean on your tank with diluted bleach and even let it run for 24 hours with the filter on, rinse, re fill and add a dechlorinator and let it run another 24h, rinse well and fill add dechlorinator.....before you get another Betta to be safe...these things happen...don't give up...look forward to seeing and hearing about your new Betta real soon...again sorry for your loss.....

Thank ueveryone I am pretty upset. I still have russell my other betta. We are going to talk about a new betta later. As far as using diluted bleach water how much bleach to water? Also I can run the diluted bleach water withthe filter on? Should I soak the ornaments too?

I'd imagine soaking the ornaments would be a good idea as anything that was in the tank could be a potential carrier of the bacteria.

Diluted bleach water I use is 20 parts water to 1 part bleach...more or less..and yes, use this dilution with everything in the tank and run the filter.

Flexobacteria is in our tank all the time in low numbers and only affect the fish when the right conditions are present....
