Thanks, Chesh. You're always so supportive. If this keeps up I'm going to have to go ahead and break down the 55 and start all over. I'm dreading it, but if this is Columnaris, its the THIRD time its struck, and I'll never get rid of it, and watch countless more fish die. Have to be realistic here. The female bettas are so sweet that they let me pet them, and they are the only ones who do it. I can't imagine having fish without bettas. Although my new guppies are busy winning my heart right now too! I'm thinking of putting the male gups in the 55, females in the 20, and my male betta in the 10. That way I can just put two together that I want to breed in the 20, and put the other male gups in a Tupperware container until the breeding is accomplished. Sound like a plan? How are your Bolivian Rams, by the way?

Sounds like . . . fun! (except for the break down of the 55g tank part)
I'm still hoping it isn't the dread Columnaris, but you've dealt with it and I haven't. Fingers crossed (again) that this is the last loss for a long, long time over there.

Rams. . . are happily breeding beautiful little things. love, love, love my babies! <3

Keep me posted on how things are going, please? I worry for you. . .

Well, found the betta this morning, dead of course. Its the third day since she disappeared. Having lost two others in the last few weeks, and having one in the hospital tank being treated wtih Kanaplex, yes, I'm very worried its Columnaris. Her skin is coated with a slime, and her spine is now a bit crooked. She's also very thin, although still eating and fairly active. I guess we'll see what happens...
