99% sure this is what killed my new betta. I don't have pictures yet (I'll take some once I remove his body) but his body lost all color last night and he was having lots of trouble swimming in any direction. His fins were gray on the edges and now the gray is almost halfway down his fins and his body is gray as well. He was dead when I got up this morning, it seemed to have killed him quite literally overnight.

Do you think if I bleach and then boil the heater, filter and acrylic tank and leave it to dry in the sun it will be safe for a new fish?

I know you all have been talking about this new disease. I had a betta once before he was about 5yrs old when he died. I recently bought a new one and I noticed he has been acting weird from when I first bought him. Tuesday his tail was fine and yesterday his tail is almost gone. I thought he had fin rot and I have been treating him for it. But today his tail is worst than the other day and he has started slamming himself all over the tank. But he has a healthy appetite. I was wondering if you all had any ideas. it doesn't sound a 100% like what you guys had described above in posts.

You should start your own thread and post a pic, sounds like he might have a fungus

Just thought I pop a post in here seeing as my friends fish died the other day. I had left another friend in charge of feeding my fish and the other one my neighbour has, she had to leave for a few days (like 2) and when we came back on the same day, found Fabian dead at the bottom of the tank.
The friend that was looking after them said that Fabian had been depressed/not moving from next to the heater. He would eat and come up for air but that was it. We chalked it down to depression as 2 of his tankmates had recently died.

LadyRaven, that is most definitely graphite disease. Did the friend say if he was acting weird that day or the day before?

He'd apparently been acting like that for quite a while, almost a week. He used to flit around the tank as happy as could be, then just became more and more lethargic it seems.
