She's got the bacteria eating away below her tail fin. She's been lethargic, but I think the antibiotics are working. All of the girls are quarantined now, will be totally breaking down the sorority until I know for sure they're all healthy. I don't want to risk anyone else getting sick. This bacteria (luckily for me[sarcasm]) is the super-aggressive flesh-eating variety of columnaris, so it's going to be difficult to get rid of. Daiquiri was showing progress until she developed an infection on her anal fin that ate right down to her body within 24 hours. I'm doing what I can, and I'll keep treating as long as it takes, but I'm not going to get my hopes up too high. Losing Nina hurt enough.

I been feeling down in the dumps the past few days and I have no clue why, and I also miss my mother. I haven't seen her for 2 and a half years and we hardly ever talk on the phone. When I do call her the very first thing she always says is, "what did/do you want?" or "what are you calling for?" *sigh* I miss my younger days when I was able to lay my head on her and she stroked my hair....I felt so loved lol

.... I feel so stressed. Honestly, I'm freaking out, and just sort of wish I could stop time. I've got my AP exam tomorrow, and I'm really, really nervous. I'm studying, but it's already 11, and I have to be at school by 7:30. D: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Woke up to find Wraith with a big ole fat lip that's swelled up the left side of his face. I have no idea what happened but I have an idea. I've seen him try to take on pond snails as big as his head. I gave him a big ole water change and extra Atison's betta spa but I'm worried. I hope it's not cotton mouth. I do have Kanaplex so I'm ready. I hate when they're sick. It makes me all nervous-like.

Epsom salt, maybe? To help it go down?

Try 1-2 tsp/gallon for 2-3 days, then up to 2-3 for 7-10 :<

Thanks Alyssa. I'm thinking I'll pick some up later.

Ouch, sorry about that Vaygirl.... maybe one of the snails finally put up a fight? XD

Antirant: the test is done, and I'm now home, because kids who take the AP exam are on a "field trip" the rest of the day of their exam~ :)

Thanks guys. :( I'm looking him over really hard. His lip is slashed above the joint that allows him to pooch his lips out, down to white meat. No wonder he's swollen. BUT, he very enthusiastically devoured 5 bloodworms so I think it's just wound. He's otherwise active and feisty, just puffy. He looks like Rocky Balboa on one side. :)
