Draco is doing much better he's been begging for food although he won't eat pellets and only bloodworms =_=. rosco is still hiding in his man cave so I haven't been able to check his eating yet. I also I woke up to find my tank is all cloudy 0_0 idk why

I'm glad Draco is eating again, that's always a good sign. If you want to try and get him to eat pellets, you can either soak the pellets in garlic juice or in the juice from thawed frozen bloodworms. That might encourage him to try the pellets. Hehe, I hate it when they decide to be picky. Hopefully Rosco will also eat soon. If he doesn't show some activity, you may want to scare him out of his mancave just so you can get a good look at him and make sure he hasn't gotten worse.

Your tank may be cloudy because the filter was off while you were doing the medicine; sometimes turning it back on stirs up gunk in the water and it might take a while or a water change to clear it up. It could also be the medicine as it's being filtered out. Either way, if it really concerns you, you can do a small water change and see if that helps.

Silly Rosco. Does he look like he's breathing heavy or bloated? Maybe he's just being a brat. Will he eat?

They're really handsome bettas. I love Rosco's coloring. I hope he perks up and will eat soon.

That is progress. Keep trying. If he doesn't eat the food in about 10 minutes, remove it so it doesn't gunk up the water. If he's not sick but just adjusting to life or sulking, he'll eat when he's hungry.

Yay! I'm so glad Rosco is eating! I was a little worried the way he was hiding in his cave. And Draco sounds like a different betta altogether. That's awesome, I'm really happy for you. I think they're going to be okay.
