Thanks so much for your help, guys :)

Yeah, I am almost certain it is Columnaris now, I have been google-ing about it, and it seems to be the case. Since the post, I am not sure if I put it in the original one, but Fish, Sally, and Blueberry have passed away... Last night, my dad, sister, Leopard Gecko, and I had a funeral for them.

I guess I will strip down my WHOLE tanks, and clean every last inch of it, making sure that there is NO chance of this ever coming back again. What is the strongest/best cleaning product that you have used, that is fish safe? My mom said use bleach, but that kinda struck me as giving your dog/cat anti-freeze....

Thanks so much for everything :)

Diluted bleach..I was told by Oldfishlady to use it.

1 part bleach to 20 parts water (ex. 1 cup bleach to 20 cups water)

Day one rinse everything (EVERYTHING) with the bleach water, I soaked my ornaments and just threw away plants. Then i filled the tank with the bleach water and set it up to run for 24 hours with the filter.

Day two do the same process but with regular non bleach water.

im very sorry about your fish. not to make fun of or make a joke out of this but there should be a betta heaven lol. sorry but

"It looked like they had fuzzy patches on their mouth"

this could have been fungus because the cloudy eyes and that is very well seen symptoms of fungus.

are you planing on getting another sorority started all over?

Okay, I can water it down a bit, that seems pretty good..

I guess so, haha. We can hope :P
I don't think it was fungus, unless Columnaris is a Fungus, haha, but I am like 90% sure it is Columnaris

Oh, yeah I do want to try and start over again, but not for a few months maybe.
