Isn't there something about using Melafix, Bettafix type treatments that can affect a Betta. Something about the way they breathe and it being "sticky" or something. Can anyone elaborate on that?

Jackiebabie - I've heard that too. I know this sounds bad, but I'm not entirely sure if i believe it or not. It affects there labyrinth organ. The only I'm not entirely sure if it is true or not is because HOW would they prove that.
Oh well, I know have better meds so i don't need to use it on them anymore.

Sorry to hear that. You put plenty of effort into curing them. Sometimes it's just beyond our control.
