Tank use after sick fish?
Sadly my betta got dropsy and died. : (
As soon as I saw it, I removed the snail, upped the temp, added melafix and some epsom salt. He did so much better for almost a week, but then all of a sudden he got worse, and he just didn't make it. I'm so sad. he was a great betta. Had a lot of "personality".
Anyway, I want to put a couple of danios into that tank now along with the snail. The danios are baby, about 3 months old and living in a net breeder which is starting to become too small for them really. I am a little leery about using the tank after a sick fish was there, but I am under the impression dropsy is not contagious. I will start fresh so to speak as far as filter media and water, but I have a bio wheel and cycled gravel that I want to re-use to keep the cycle going.
Anyone know if this is ok or not? The tank is currently empty. The betta just died yesterday. : ([/code]
