Yes it is possible. It is mainly blues BUT other colors can get it. For me it is mainly blues from one particular store.

My blue/purple bettas tummy (where his ventral fins are) is turning grayish over the past 2 days. He is still eating and has fin rot right now. Im treating with Melafix and today is the last day. Could this be the mystrious illness? Ive had him for 2 years 7 month 10 days so could age be a contributing factor?
I hope he'll get better!! Scrath that, he WILL get better!!

That... Is from being old. Lol. I noticed grey belly is either internal parasites...stress related... Or age related :)

Shouldn't be. It seems like the start of an internal breakdown, (AKA Dropsy) though. :/

Pearl, do a 100% and be very careful dosing with Melafix. Overdosing with that can cause damage to his labyrinth organ. Sparky sends get well wishes.

I am very careful not to over dose, I use a pharmacy thing to measure it.
If he needs more after this should I do a half dose? Because his tail is about 5mm away from his body . . .

If his rot is that bad, I'm not sure Melafix will really help. It's mostly an antiseptic more than a medicine. If you can, you might try API Furan-2 but I'm not sure if you have that readily available in Canada or not.

If not, continue with the Melafix. As long as you're careful, it won't hurt. Good luck!

I wanted to get Maracyn, but it was like 25$ and I dont have that money. I changed the water today, shuld I do a smale change every other day to get rid of the koodies? Ill give him a break for the Melafix for a 2 days and then continue. My neighbor suggested salt, but he is soo old I dont want to hurt Swish. His belly is more so white right now.
And my friend gave me a great link on Columnaris, which explains Maggandras and Squiggles death . . . really interesting pOst.
