Yea, hole in head is one of those diseases that can hardly ever be cured... Last I read, they still don't even know what causes it...

I've heard everything from viral to genetic abnormality to vitamin D deficiency.

Sorry for your loss.

I can second that statement. When I researched it was indesicive. I was lucky on healing mine. But I also caught it relatively early.

Thank You everyone! I'm ok about it. I was in a way expecting it. The little buddy held out for so long tho!
Everyone else in the big tank is great. Even the last two Lake Kutubu Rainbowfish I got a month ago with ratty fins have grown lovely new fins top and bottom.
Mr. Betta fish, Fishbert, (he is the only one I have named by the way) is back home in his 10 Gallon where it is much warmer than the little non-heated 1.5gal cube temporary home. Had to heat it with the 10gal's canopy lights.
Thanks again!
