Well they both made it through the night luckily. After I get off work I'll stop by petsmart and get their meds. I gave them a water change but no food this morning.

They seem to have improved every I see them so that's good. I picked up API General Cure which is a de-wormer. It costs $16 so it had better work.

I'm about to set up a 10 gallon hospital tank and get them started on treatment. It should take about 4 days for the full treatment. After that I'll start to tackle any other issues that pop up.

Good luck! IMO if the fish makes its through the first night than he/she will most likely make it. The Betta disease experts have spoken and sounds like they gave good advice. Under good care and treatment, they will make it! *Go Bettas, you can, you can!*

They've made an unbelievable turn around. The first guy had no issues with his swim bladder any more and both are MUCH more active. I even caught them flaring at each other through the divider.

They still are being de-wormed and both seem to have inflamed gills.. which could just be because of the ammonia they were in.

I haven't fed them since Friday night. I'm going to try giving them some NLS grow. Hopefully Fish 1's SB wont have issues.

I'll get some pictures up probably tomorrow or Tuesday.
