Thanks.

I'm guessing time will tell if it's Myco. Fingers crossed that it's anything but that. I still lean more towards some type of cancer, but I just don't know, and there isn't a fish vet anywhere near me, nor do I have the money to ship him and have him tested by a biology lab. I can't figure out where he would even have come into contact with Myco, unless he came with it.

He's still with me, did I mention I'm dragging my feet.... Maybe if I wait long enough someone will come put him to sleep for me. Yeah right...

On a brighter note, all my other boys seem to be doing just fine. Cinnaber is ruling over his cory cat minions, thank goodness he's a benevolent ruler. Bruiser is working on his bubble nest and waiting for the ladies to show up. Picasso is enjoying having the divider taken out of the 10 gal and is happily exploring the whole tank. Lagniappe is another bubble nest builder and is waiting on the ladies. His tank is on the kitchen counter and he enjoys watching me work in the kitchen.

My boy Mercury has crossed the bridge. If I never again have to put down one of my betta while he's still eating, still swimming, like Mercury was it's going to be too soon! I know I could have left him be, but I didn't want him to start suffering, his caudal was nearly gone from the unstoppable rot.

Mercury, I'm gonna miss you. You'll always be my little betta troll under the bridge.
