    scoobie i asked someone to help you SenaHansler , i gave her the link with your post where you put the pictures. But yes i really think new separate thread is better so more people can see it.
    Also yes dried bw only about 3 times a week as a snack. Better frozen one. And i think he refusing pellets either because he don't like the pellets you offering him or just because you was feeding with other food , especially blood worms daily that is the reason he is refusing pellets. It always a problem if you introduce betta to the bw first then they will refuse pellets. So you really need to teach him to eat the pellets.

    I already send you that link . Let me know if you didn't get it. I think i just deleted my sent message, but i am pretty sure i sent it to you:)
    How long you have him two weeks or two month? You forgot to write :)
    Also make sure you feed him pellets because just a freeze dried worms is not enough for his diet. He needs good quality food like New Life Spectrum Betta Formula; Omega One betta buffet pellets. Also if you can buy frozen blood worms he will really appreciate it. Frozen dried blood worms you should use only as a snack 2-3 times a week , as they cause constipation, so be careful don't overfeed.
    If you get frozen food make sure it not sinking to the bottom and contaminate the water. Let me know and i will give you the link with the instructions how to feed with a frozen food.

    Oh yes not i got it. You was talking about that betta in your thread that you made in may. I just saw your new betta!!!! I am glad you have one. You all set for the water changes and tank care? I am going to pm you a link from Oldfishlady about water changes for the 10 gall tank. She is the best for the advice. Somehow i can't post any links in here so i am going to pm it to you. Just be aware that her recommendations for one betta in the tank so since you have more then one fish in the tank you might need to do even more water changes. And just want to remind to rinse/swish filter media weekly in the tank water. Of course you need to do it not in the tank though.
    And when the cartridge get old or fall apart put a new cartridge in the filter but keep the old one behind it for a week and monitor ammonia

    Don't get discourage though, don't get upset it really happened a lot in the fish world. Well all animals get sick just like human being . It just circle of life. Just think this way , you do rescue a life from the terrible store and give him your love. So i wish you will do it again. And i hope to talk to you again. May be we can figure out what happened. And i think you need to disinfect the tank if he was in the separate tank. Let me know if you need any help, i hope to talk to you again. Thank you .

    Sorry:( If you can give me more details we might can figure out if it either may be you have to change the way you doing something or if he was sick to begin with. Also not sure if you had him in the same tank with other fish? Bettas i think more fragile , more susceptible to the disease then other fish . I saw so many post when betta is sick but all other ones are doing great. Not sure if you had him in the same tank, but i think it really better for betta to have his own tank to prevent any infections.
