The betta aren't bothered in the least by the rainbow. They are doing their "thing," as always. Just as they acted before I put the new one in.

I had another very sick fish this morning--things are not looking up. My little orange platy was on death's doorstep, and I saw the film on him, and knew he was past helping. So I euthanized him. So it's still around, and I fear for the other fish. There are all the signs of columnaris there that I've researched. The filmy patches on the body, sometimes a lip lesion, sluggishness, hiding and sometimes shimmying. If the lip lesion is seen, they usually die within 12 hours. I feel just sick about this. Every time I think it's finally gone...

Have you used any medication for this at all? And what is the GH and pH?

Is it only your platies & betta's showing signs of columnaris? From what I have read livebears & betta's are more susceptible to this disease.
