MattsBettas If your only getting one betta, you don't have a ton at stake. Avoid the sick ones (exceptions like fin rot, sbd, etc apply), and you really should be fine.

Then I started reading about diseases and read this whole thread, I was scared to death of even getting a betta after reading the first few pages, everything was presented as dire...I was even paranoid about changing my guppies water without a full blown nuclear fallout getup on! I have 13 female and 8 male guppies in two sexed tanks. Anyways, I made it to the end of this thread and will be extra careful with cleaning procedures, have bleach, alcohol and Barbasol (sp?) on hand but will still get a betta or two. I really learned a lot from this thread.
Getting a pet store fish is ok...but AVOID the sick ones. I know everyone wants to buy the skinny fin rotty ones, but for me...THOSE were what I went through with the mycos. A healthy active fish is one I'd go for.

...Just be careful with your cleaning :D

MattsBettas Seriously... Could someone PLEASE make this a sticky? The information on here is hard to find and potentially could be (literally) a lifesaver for me.

ruddeegi I know the feeling I had 3/ 3 year old Goldfish in a 10 gallon and I
moved My Dojo Loach to thier tank so I could Treat The Tropical fish Tank Because a single Gourami had the Disease and You cant treat the scaless dojo
well every thing but the cory cats in both Tanks died I am afraid to even replenish the clean 10 gallon with fish and afraid to move the cory into the now seemingly stable tropical tank for fear of killing every new resident in it

bettalover2000 My fish had weird swelling, was staying on the bottom only coming up for food, and had SLIGHT pineconing at times. I had to arouse her to get her to get air.

This an album of some photos, the first one was in the early stage, the other two I don't even know if they were from the disease.
I already buried her a few months ago, otherwise I would have sent her for research. Sorry!

DoctorWhoLuver That sounds really effective! Lol Funny that viruses can be used to kill bacteria.

I was just chatting with the molecular biology professor at my school and she mentioned it. Let me find the link.

there is a video of what happens..sorta

But apparently there are bacteriophages that are applied to skin infections pretty much like sunscreen that gets rid of the infection.
That being said, if you could get a sample of the phage, create a water solution of it and apply that to the fishtank it should theoretically kill the mycos
