Sorry to hear it. Hope the rest of the clan pulls through for you!

Sorry to hear about Ryuu as well... but I'm glad your fish are doing a bit better... I'm kinda worried about your HM since he's still clamped- maybe your veiltail still feels a bit cold and while he's adjusting since he's probably still cold then his metabolism might be a bit slower(?) I dunno, just a guess..

I think you should keep it at 80. The only time you need it any hotter is if they have any other ailments that need to be treated at higher temps. You should probably just stick with the waiting game and see how they do after sitting in the warmth for a few more days... I imagine it would end up stressing them even more if you uped the temp 'cause then they'd go from comfortable, freezing, back to comfortable, and then hot within a small time period... sounds like too much fluctuation in my opinion >.< Especially since their health seems a bit on the low side atm..

I agree with Draug. The more consistent the better right now.

Here's a crazy question since you brought up the poop. In 6+ weeks, I have NEVER seen my betta poop. Is this cause for concern? Does he just appreciate the value of a little privacy? I'm assuming he does poop because everything else seems perfectly normal (he eats, swims, makes bubble nests, flares at his reflection) and I do fast him one day a week. Just seems weird that I never see him "dangling a deuce" if you will.

xD If it helps, usually when I see my betta poop, he doesn't 'dangle' any 'deuces' lol... They come out more like the pellets I feed him >.>...... weird... But yeah, since your fish isn't showing any ill effects and so long as he doesn't seem uber bloated he probably does poop when you're not looking. Sometimes when you siphon/clean your tank, you might be able to see little round things or something like that- try keeping an eye out then; especially if he's the only one in the tank and you don't have any algae problems or anything like that...
