    Yeah they must have not been in there long. Glad you was able to work out something for them. I do remember seeing two Betta's in a cup before. The defeated Betta was lying down motionless and the other was parading over him like he was Muhammad Ali. Poor thing. I took the cup to the sales person. Another time I saw this Betta in a cup with a stomach totally inflated looking like he was 9 months pregnant. Someone had dumped a whole bunch of pellets in his cup and he proceeded to try and eat himself to death. Again I took the cup to the sales person and he said "kids". It's sad that customers act like that, but in this case the company is putting the animals at risk. Terrible.

    Wow I never seen fish gills before. How did the cover come off?

    Wow shame on Walmart! I've seen some crazy stuff with Bettas at a pet stores, but never a three for one special all in the same cup. Hot mess! I'm surprised they're all alive. Hope they pull through.
  4. That's interesting. Good luck this time around.
  5. Sounds like a lot of fun. I never been to a fish show.
  6. Hi I need to clean my filters too. I have a sponge and HOB filter. Do you think it'll be ok to squeeze them both out during the same water change?

    Thanks Myra, I'll remove all the salt. Should I do my last scheduled round of the Prazipro once the salt is removed? That would be number 6.
  9. Uh oh!!!!! Sorry, my question started it! Glad your fish 🐟 s better😊

    Hi thanks for responding. What's your name or do you go by Artic Mama? Thanks for the info on the stringy poop. I'm doing Metroplex Med food right now. I'm on day 12 will finish out the three weeks. They are no longer bottom sitting. They flashed a lot initially, but hardly ever anymore. I did see Goldie flash once on Monday night, but no more after that. I panicked cause I had not seen them flash in probably 2 plus weeks. I'm on round 5 with Prazipro and will start the final round on Friday. I only have .1% Aq salt in my tank now, Can you clarify, should I just water change the salt out? Then if it's needed i.e. Cause of flashing bring it back up to .3% or .5%. I am concerned about their increased air gulping though and I have plenty aeriation in the tank. The gulping got better, but has now returned. I was double dosing the Prazipro when my Aq salt was .3%, but when I brought it down to .1% on Saturday then I single dosed. I wonder since I put in less Prazipro that they have more symptoms i.e. Air gulping.

    Okay I'll hold on. Yes, I'm using the liquid Prazipro. Thanks

    Hi y'all, I'm concerned about my two fish. They are on their 5th round of Prazi. I dosed number 5 on Saturday and will do the water change tonight. After I dose the Prazi I usually would not see any symptoms from the fish until after 3 days when the meds wear off. However last night Goldie was gulping air a lot and it was only day two since I dosed the Prazi. Goldie has always been more symptomatic. I just realized I changed a few things. For the first four rounds I was double dosing Prazi for each treatment because I had .3% of salt in the water. I kept it at .3% for 3 weeks. Later I read on this forum about how Prazipro should not be used with .3% of salt. So after three weeks I dropped it to .015% of salt and still double dosed, but at this last dose which was 5, I dropped the salt to .1% and used a regular dose of Prazi. I did this because I read Prazipro would not be effective/safe with.3%, but would be ok with up to .02%. I hope y'all are following me. Anyway, I don't know what to do now. I don't know if the gulping is from the flukes or if they have something else like Ich, but with no spots. Also, they both still have white stringy poop. They have been on Metroplex food for 11 days now. Thanks for the help.

    It's amazing how they have their own personalities.
