I'm so sorry DH. You are an incredible fish-mom, but there are just some things that are not in our control. You're doing everything you can, which is more than most fishies would get with other inexperienced owners.

Ditto to what everyone else says. Look at yourself (: You've made an AWESOME home for your bettas... Everyone, and I mean everyone, loses them sometimes. Bettas are not indestructible, and people are not perfect. Mistakes will be made, but you gave them the best life possible. Five bucks says that if you hadn't gotten them, they would probably be dead. Dead in the bowl, dead in dinky little vase that gets one water change a year. You gave them clean homes, guaranteed food, and everything a betta could need. If you're a bad betta mom, I'm the terminator.

I'm sorry I missed this. I'm so so sorry you lost Ivy. Like everyone else has said sometimes things just happen. Don't beat yourself up, its beyond your control.

Just as a precautionary measure I would bleach everything you use that comes in contact with water or fish. Every month I bleach my cups, nets, siphon, all silk/plastic plants, my bucket, pretty much anything I can think of short of the fish themselves.

Your not a bad fish mom. Stuff like this just can't be prevented sometimes.

Hang in there. ((HUGS))

I am sory, I know how you feel hun, I lost Haruki out of the blue, and thought I would lose Spoof too.
Stuff like that cannot be prevented, but they had a REALLY great mom. That is what matters...
Just think, you made thier life a lot more pleasant than they would have had in petstore cups.

Thank you guys so much.. You have no idea how much this helps me. Thank you.

I'm extremely careful when I'm dealing with sick fish and even not sick fish. I just hope that this doesn't somehow get into any other tanks. If that happens... geez.

Well, bad news. I'm gonna lose Sammy too. He is having big pine coning and I'm wondering if I should just euth him. He looks miserable and I know he won't make it. Do you all think I should just do it? I hate to see him suffer. He's such a sweet boy and doesn't deserve to suffer.

Pax isn't looking good either. This is awful. I know I can't blame myself, but I feel like it's my fault.
