Lola - he is in QT now, yes. I did a 100% on his old tank and added clean conditioned water. That is going to sit empty until Dumbo gets better. I put in just a drop of the rid-ich, I didn't want to put too much in. He is still eating and he is swimming a bit more. He is usually feeling better in the morning, then in the afternoon he crashes... But I'm not giving up. :) You guys have all been so helpful, thank you! Rayne - cute avie pic and neat name. I'm sorry about your fishy! :( I lost 2 bettas to ich last year, and 4 guppies. I hate ich. I don't want to lose my Dumbo to it too.
