I feel silly asking, but what is IAL? I'd be happy to get that for her. And I love the rocks idea-hadn't thought of that & I bet she'd like that-thanks :)

Indian almond leaves. you rinse them and set them in the tank water. it has anti bacterial and anti fungal properties. I use it in all my tanks.

Good to know! I've never heard of them before. What a great idea! I imagine they are available online? I can use gloves when handling them since I'm allergic to virtually every kind of nut.

Indian almond leaves also known as catippa I believe (spelt wrong?)

Anyways, do her fins have a pink tinge to them, or was that from the camera? o.o Being in those conditions, she could get some infections - but maybe not pretty fishies :o

Done! They'll take awhile to get here, since they come from overseas, but her fins definitely won't heal overnight. And since I do a lot of rescues, they'll be good to have on hand for the future. Do you leave yours' in the tank or just in the pretreated water? The bettas don't try to eat them, do they?

I leave mine in the tank. they make awesome hiding spots, resting spots... they don't really try eating the leaves, they might peck at the unseen water creatures that are delicious to them

They do have a bit of pink/purple to them from what I can tell of what's left of them. I worry that she could have a secondary infection, but so far she's eating good and swimming as well as she can. I'm doing the 100% water changes with the AQ salt. We're on Day 2 of that. I'll be relieved if/when I see any new growth. That should mean (hopefully) no infection.

That's good-she likes her little hammock, so I bet she's like to hide with those too.
