    I think that I finally stopped it cold. I'm going to keep treating it to avoid it becoming resistant, but 3 more days is the maximum.

    These things take time. One of the things that I found helped to speed the recovery of my boys was extra protein. Fresh brine shrimp and frozen blood worms (not freeze dried) in addition to their regular diet. It may also help speed his recovery to keep him warm and isolated as stress will slow down regeneration.

    Doing a 1/3 water change every day now. (Don't want to risk a mini-cycle.) The salt seems to have slowed down the infection, but no fin regrowth.

    We have a couple of snails that "just popped into existence." What are you fighting the fin rot with? How often are you changing the water?

    Adoption went pretty smooth, but I'm not fighting a horrid case of fin rot that won't go away. I'm going to have to order anti-biotics, and I don't really have the money for it.

    But I did have a dream where I set up a sorority tank and it kept filling up with plecos, goldfish, and killifish that just popped into existence. I had to keep putting them in other tanks.

    How did the adoption go? Still having weird dreams about your bettas?
