My Betta is sick

Here is another photo. The thing I am worried about is just below/behind his eye. I have quarantined him to try and get rid of that nasty looking thing...

What have you done in terms of medication anyway? That might help others understand.

I haven't attempted anything. I though I would come here first to get some advice. I don't really know what to do.

Neither. Maybe start your own thread in the emergencies and diseases section. A lot more would look at that there than here.

I stumbled onto this thread and although I didn't read through every page (55 is a bit daunting!) it seems like there's still not any effective method of treating this infection. For others that are veterinary students, if this is indeed a mycobacterium infection, has anyone else seen the research about bacterial efflux pump inhibitors paired with antibiotics as a possible mechanism of treatment?
Does anyone think that it's a possible theory to be able to use these with bettas, as some of the original research was done on zebrafish?

Some of the articles I was looking at:
Hypertension drugs help fight tuberculosis

Effects of Verapamil (an EPI candidate) on zebrafish

Infections in Zebrafish

...well, at least now I know what it is. I've never seen ANYTHING this virulent. Un-flipping-believable.

Late last night, I had a ~9month blue delta tail showing early signs of this. Lethargic but still taking food, what initially looked like columnaris on his caudal. This morning, most of his caudal and dorsal appears stiff and ashy grey/black. Started salt + Furan2 at 4PM. The necrotic(?) areas have completely disintegrated now, looking grim but trying to continue treatment.

Hindsight being 20/20, this probably is what killed my female a couple days ago. Watching my teal marbles like a hawk now... This is going to require the "nuke-'em-from-orbit" option for cleanup, isn't it? GRRRRRRR.

Found the blue delta dead this morning. Shutting down the tanks and nuking.

Any new info on pathogen, correlation with blue bettas, or potential treatments? (Aside from the link to acute myco.)
