    Temperature fluctuations can cause finrot. That happened to one of mine a few years ago when my ac went out.I have no idea how long it takes to get rid of velvet.

    Cool. Might take longer than a day for him to get rid of it I think..he probably has had it awhile,I just didnt notice. It says they get when stressed or sick already,particularly if the water temp gets too low. Well thats in a nutshell. The ends of his tail fins are turning black a bit,is that good or bad?? i hope his fin rot isnt getting worse...but i did just start his meds,so maybe itll stop that.

    Oh, no! I'm sorry! Yeah, Aquarisol is good for ich and velvet and you use 2 drops per gallon until its gone. Poor little guy!

    Aww poor oscar. The parasite stuff says should fix up in 24 hours,if not dose again. Um. okay. The bacterial meds say 5 days of dosing. So I guess wait and see if he gets better,else dose him for another 5 days. I am keeping his tank covered,as it says to do that with parasites. His tank is nice and warm too. Hope it helps.

    They're doing ok. I'm treating Oscar with JFE for some white stuff on his dorsal fin. I'm doing 2 rounds this time. He hates medicine but he's doing ok with it.

    Hey! Well I dosed Elvis with his meds and the aquarisol. He still looks dusty,so I guess it will take a little longer. He seems more active though. So thats good. Morado is still swollen. Maybe a few more days of no food will help. After that,I did get frozen daphnia and peas. So Ill try them. My new girl looks swollen ,so shes on a fast too. LOL. How are your bettas doing?
