    Hello, i'm treating my betta for dropsy per your noncoservative method. i'm using marcyn plus with 100% tank changes daily. My question is everyday changes? On the bottle it says 1,3 and 5 day. Also put in aquarium salt the fisrt two days will this worsen his condition? Please help, I trust you and hve recommended your list of diseases & treatments to many with questions. Just needed alittle clarification on instructions. Thank you, Sherrie

    Hi, yesterday I brought a sample of Ivory's water to a pet store to be tested. Apparently, it was a little high in ammonia (I think about 1 or 1.5. I have a test strip, but it doesn't test for ammonia. I normally change half his 2.5 gallon tank every 7 days. I know ammonia can harm him. Should I be concerned?

    Darkmoon, I got a male beta about 4 months ago. I thought when a fish pooped, it was stringy, but his is round, he, for some reason, does his biggest poop every 6 days, when I cup him. He doesn't appear to be stressed when I'm cleaning his tank. The only time I notice he has a large bm (at least twice his usual size) is when he is cupped. Should I be concerned?

    Hi darkmoon. I have a question about water changes. I have a male beta in a 2.5 gallon heated and filtered tank. How often and what percentage of water shoul I change? I tried looking in the forums, even the faq, but I can't find any answers. Someone told me several months ago to change 50 and 100 every 4 days, someone else told me 25 and 50. What do you suggest? I believe Sakura told me the 50 and 100.

    Hi all, sorry for my along absence. My senior year at college required me to cut down on some of the things I love (like this site) and I will be going to Vet School this fall so I can't imagine having time to frequent I am very sorry that I haven't had time to check messages here. If you have any questions or concerns please email me at my school address: alogy5@mail. missouri. edu Just remove the spaces. I check emails daily!

    I will be cleaning Jewel's tank tomorrow. Usually I use a bit of vinegar, should I be using the aquarium salts I just bought instead of the vinegar?

    Darkmoon, your pm box is full.
    Last night, I reduced Jewel's water level by half, unplugged her heater and left the glass top off over night. This morning she is back to her usual self. I haven't fed her yet, but still plan on getting some epsom salts.

    I just found out that Jewel (my female beta) has swim bladder. The pet store told me to feed her peas, but before I thawed them, I found your site about diseases. Now I'll get some epsom salts tomorrow and hopefully, my bro-in-law can find some NLS or omega one. How long should I fast her for?
