    I need your help again! My juvies are dying, and I don't know what the cause is.
    Before, they were ok, had insatiable appetite, and were very lively. When they reached about .5", most just hung in the water surface and stopped feeding.

    I noticed that those which had this mysterious ailment had very stubby pectoral fins.

    That's what I observed. They just float near the surface, they don't eat, and they have stubby pectorals fins. When they get too emaciated, that's when they just cease living. :(

    I just lost half of the juvies in one of my spawns due to this unknown sickness.

    As to their diet, I feed (or fed, as they had stopped eating lol) them fish eggs and a variety of powdered fish food. Their water is also well maintained, and regularly changed.

    Please share your thoughts! Thanks so much!!

    Hi, I was sent to you to seek advice for my betta Ramsey. He developed a white spot on his head about a 2 weeks ago. It hasn't spread anywhere else, it just stays above his eye. I have treated him with bettafix, Maracyn 1 & 2 (all at different times of corse). It still won't go away. =/. He still has normal eating habbits and doesn't act sick. If you could give me some advice that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks =].

    Thanks OFL. I checked on him today and he was himself again. Colored up, the only thing missing was a few of his rays. It looked like he fought his tail and won slightly. He's back to normal though and he doesn't have any signs of being ill. Last night he exhausted himself and stayed hidden until early this morning. Thankfully he's okay.

    Hey Jimmysdad, good to hear you still have him.....can you make a thread on the main board and post a pic...if you haven't already....

    Arashi-what other symptom along with fin rot...usually QT with 100% daily water changes with aquarium salt 1tsp/gal, tannin fussed treatment water is pretty effective for me...

    OFL I need some advice. My betta Akira has fin rot. His beard has black on it and his rays look as if they've been filed. He's lost some of his coloring. I asked around and am getting IAL and AQ salt to treat him with...How many waterchanges should I do however with the treatment? I'm still shaking even though it's been hours since I discovered it.
