Lilnaugrim gave some good advice. Good luck Fenghuang. I would consider giving her a Methylene Blue bath or a aq salt bath as well. You can also make a bath mix of a lil salt, blue and kanaplex together for a short duration. These things can be difficult to defeat Ive been there myself, cheering for you!

Thank you, LG. We will go ahead with the AQ salt bath.

I feel kind of bad for admitting this, but I am more worried about her than the other the sorority girls. She is one of the few remaining fry from Deanna's spawn and I want to breed her.

We all have our favorites. Sadly these are the ones that get sick most of the time for some cruel reason.

Yea, it does seem that way, doesn't it? All the ones I was most attached to passed before their time. Seems like we try to do everything we are suppose to and they still fall ill.

On the other hand, I return home for summer vacation and the trio of way-too-big-for-their-tank-now koi, feeder goldfish, and sailfin pleco in my dad's tank are still alive and still thriving (*knock on wood*), my dad having given up on fixing and filling up the pond he got them for ages ago. That tank gets one 100 percent W/C every handful of months—more when I try to take care of it—and it has been this way for the last six years.

Oh wow, I'm very sorry for those fish! it's a shame when that happens!

Here is a real good think about Columnaris and other similar fungi:

And here's one about baths, dips and swabs:

Marble's copper sister is now in QT. She looks to have an small area with a few lose scales. Could very well be in-fighting, but no chances are being taken.

Sorority is getting taken apart tonight and all the girls will be isolated.

Yeah, it's like how people keep bettas in those sad little vases without even an inkling of what proper care is and despite everything, they live for years. It's frustrating.

Thank you. I will definitely read those.

I haven't placed the copper girl in QT yet because I went straight from work to work again, but I did stop at the house long enough to look at them all: I fed the Oddball and she's got a great appetite and was swimming around with a lot of life.

The good news is that it doesn't seem to be spreading. Marble/Oddball seems to be feeling much more like herself.

Ci rigged up a little hospital bay for them all out of a rubbermaid bin and some plastic cups secured in it with a hot glue gun. There was a slight issue with jumping. One girl leapt into her neighbor's cup to chill with her and another escaped into the surrounding water and was just zipping around happy as can be. But a cover made out of plastic mesh took care of that.
