Are the leaves available in stores? I'm currently brewing some decaf green tea as it is all I could find, the water isn't too hot so if there is any anti fungal stuff it should be okay. I really appreciate all the help you've been!

I have never seen Indian almond leaf in fish shops...not to say they are not sold in them.....just not in my area....you can get them on-line.....however, I like to use Oak leaves from my oak trees in my yard.....cheaper and at hand...lol....Free is my favorite price after all...laffs.....

If you have oak trees and they are free of any pesticide, poison...etc.....gather naturally dried and fallen from the tree-rinse before use-crush and add to pre-mixed treatment water to steep....I use 10-12 crushed per gallon of treatment water or use whole/uncrushed in the tank-I use 10-20 in my 10g spawning tanks-removed and replaced weekly

So when you mentioned decaf green tea, did you mean in the little satchels? are we certain the tea doesn't have strange side effects? he is resting now but he is lopsided. just making sure I didn't mess something up.

When he started sitting lopsided and acting strange last night my gut said take him out of the quarantine tank because he was swimming fine just minutes before. He was dead when I woke up. :(
he was covered in a light gauzy material in places, any idea what that could be?

Poor guy...hard to say....it could have been excessive slim coat or it could have been columnaris...but anything on a dead fish could be part of the decomp process and you really can't make a diagnosis from that...sorry for your loss....

Thanks for all the help you've been, the support in this forum is great.

It was a good year and a bit, he was worth every minute.

Tapping the glass can really scare fish, you should never do that. I am not sure where you got this info or maybe it was a typo, but it was definitely not breeding. Also, please read through the thread before offering advice. Unfortunately the betta had already passed by the time you posted:(
