UPDATE: I think she has died, sunk to the bottom didn't float, but I would still like to know some opinions. Do I have something contagious loose? so far no other fish is showing symptoms.

Metta


The Pali word metta is a multi-significant term meaning loving-kindness, friendliness, goodwill, benevolence, fellowship, amity, concord, inoffensiveness and non-violence. The Pali commentators define metta as the strong wish for the welfare and happiness of others (parahita-parasukha-kamana). http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/a.../wheel365.html

Check the water parameters of your main and quarantine tanks when you get back.
How much salt was dosed?
Have you noticed any aggression between the danios and betta?

Looks like the red spot could be an infection or bump from physical attacks by one of your fish to me. Nothing much you can do except keep clean water and dose a teaspoon per gallon of salt if it was still alive.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

The Betta ignores the fish, I only ever see the danios interacting with eachother, and as far as the danio goes she died. I'll keep an eye on the other tank.
