Looks like it might be time to start an anti-parasite treatment... Dim the lights, up the temperature.

I wonder if the scale marks are also parasites...

Poor little guy... that seller is a terrible breeder to do this to his fish!

I'd try maracyn, it treats pop eye and velvet, and if there is something you don't know about it'll get rid of that... I know nothing about that disease (What you called it) Sorry )=

He isn't in a critical state yet, so there is still time for him to pull through.

Well..I woke up today to find that he has just passed away. Found him behind the heater with his gills stretched out a little..so I assume he died in pain. I'm devastated...I can't believe that I couldn't help him.. his wound seemed to have gotten a little bigger, too, overnight.

I'm contacting the seller with a lengthy email filled with pictures to show him how poor of a condition his fish was in - no way shipping could do this. At least he isn't suffering, right?

poor little guy. no way could shipping have resulted in as many issues as your little guy had. the seller probably gave you some betta he had in the back, from the sound of all the issues he has. RIP, little fella. :<

I attached a bunch of pictures of what he looked like on arrival and when I had him..showing how he got progressively worse in a few weeks time. I told him that he had lymphocystis (sp?), severely damaged ventral fins, popeye, and velvet. Here's an email from earlier yesterday that didn't include the velvet because I noticed it afterwards:

"It's been a few weeks since I purchased the Gold DTPK from you. I've been monitoring him closely, and his scale has become worse. In fact, he has lymphocystis. I am extremely unhappy with this. Attached are photos (first three) of his developing lump. He also has a case of popeye along with his damaged ventral fins.

The last 3 pictures is what he looked like before. I cannot believe that he got all of his injuries and illnesses during shipping.

-Cerra"


I included the velvet and the fact that he died...got an immediate apology with the option for a replacement fish.

"Hi Cerra
Wait, I take pictures for you to see the new fish. I will not be charged.

Thanks
Somnuk"

"Hi Cerra

The picture DT
Give you choose one fish for replacement the gold DT.
By that I do not charge you.
And I will send fish to Linda on January 23.

Thanks
Somnuk"

I guess that's something..
