:/ Then I think we have our culprit and thank God he does't have that highly contagious Fur Coat Syndrome. With aquarium salt and clean water, he can pull through this.

Nutrafin should really print those expiration dates a lot clearer than that, though. It's kind of irresponsible of them, especially since their products are so good.

Question... do you think I could use the Aqua Plus for my community tanks until I can get some non expired Betta Plus?

By that I mean.. I use Aqua PLus in my community tanks, could I use it in the Betta tank for a few days lol

But can it affect it so much? Even medicines are safe 6 months after expiry..

Well I'm going to WalMart RIGHT NOW and I'm pulling all these off the shelf and taking them up front. I'll go back Tuesday and make sure they were not put back on the shelf because they tend to do that. Thanks guys!

Fighter, it's the only thing that changed and Venom stopped once he was away from the conditioner. I know in my heart this is what it is, I had this feeling from the moment I seen him in the tank the first time with tattered fins.

You're welcome, Pitluvs. Fighter, they SHOULD be good but who knows. It's Wal-Mart. If they kept them in an area of the store that got hot or cold, it could have done something to the mixture.

That's true I guess.. And thank heavens it was that and not the fur coat :D
Yeah, you should really go there and give them a piece of your mind! Idiots! I wonder how many other people and bettas must have suffered due to their idiocy..

With other animals, children, medication for humans, food... expiry dates need to be followed for health reasons. I really don't see how fish would be any different! For example, a batch with the expiry date of June 2013 may have been manufactured throughout the whole year of 2010. Your bottle could be made early 2010 or it could have been made late 2010. That's a whole year in difference when June 2013 comes up. This is just an example lol Unless something has a manufacture date, I wouldn't trust to use it after expiry.

And we all know WalMart handles their stuff horribly. I only went there because I was there at the time, and the conditioner was 1/2 the price of the LPS.
