    I was using tetra betta safe and now I'm using Prime. I've never fed him live foods, but I did recently get Aqueon and Omega One pellets. I had the tetra Betta pellets before, and have had the bloodworms for awhile, too. He also has new silk plants and some new tank decorations... Like, brand new, fresh from the store, lol.

    I got the NLS pellets after he got sick and now am only feeding those to him, but I keep trying different kinds with my CT to no avail.

    Thanks! I actually had increased his temp a little but its gotten so cold outside that its gone back down to 78. I think the room temp is now in the lower 60s. I also suspect that he may have been stressed when I initially put the heater in his tank, but at least I got it before it got really cold. I'm thinking that it may be what caused him to get sick? That or when I switched conditioners or to the 5 gallon tank. My CT wont eat now and is slightly lethargic which is completely opposite of him, haha.

    His face is getting lighter as well for some reason. I don't know if its anything to worry about but it does look off to me... I just woke him up and he had some vertical stripes? They got a lot less noticeable after a couple minutes, though. He just seems like he's sorta twitchy and moving around quickly. His buoyancy is now a bit better than this morning but its still not normal. I had to work from 11:30 -8 today and was helping my mom wrap presents until about 11 so I just had time to check on him and could not remedicate him this morning because I didn't have enough time. At this point, I'm quite willing to try almost anything but I don't have many places available locally to purchase medication so the Parasite Clear is all I have. Also no place is open anymore because of Christmas, obviously...

    Hey you were right. DaBaDees buoyancy problems have come back already :/ is it a bad idea to use the medication at a dose that's slightly less than the recommended dose after the symptoms disappear? I know that Parasite Clear has like 4 different medications in it... Also, should I put a little in the 5 gallon to help kill it even though I'll be treating him in the one gallon? Any progress I made cycling it has already been ruined, so..

    Oh, okay. So it's the same but different dosage. So General Cure is also good to mix in with the metro? I can get that from stores.

    Okay, this is just a quick question about the Metro. Does it have to be specifically for pets/fish? My dad and mom works at the hospital so I think we have some. Does it even need a prescription? I don't know. lol

    Hey Callistra, thanks for getting back to me. I think you have a valid point on the dropsy thing and it reoccuring after only one course of treatment. I'll be advocating much more aggressive treatment from now on. It's a shame that Kanaplex is so hard to find for most of us.
