They will attack the sick. I don't think it was 'shy'. I guess it's darwinian. They keep the sick away from the group.

You can buy a cheap power supply and add a meanwell-LDD driver (constant current) if you need to use it for DIY LED, plus you can dim.

Might as well get a drop checker if you want to know the ballpark CO2. The solution inside the drop checker is a known kH & pH.

You can check aquabid for the exact fish you want. Also check your local betta breed. There are some in Texas, I believe.

Get a pair of good arm gloves. You'll never fear infections again.

Are you sure it's the same fish? The bloated fish might be dead floating somewhere.

I'd separate the fish. It could be infectious, maybe parasitic.

I've seen it personally a while ago. I think I euthanized it in the end.

It's possible. Genes are funny that way.

You see it in goldfish too. I'd see a plane dark fish like their wild cousin in a batch.

oh interesting. Caffeine is a vasoconstriction. It might be helping you with the vessels in you head. You might try a decongestant if you don't have caffeine around.

There's no need to sterilize the fish. It doesn't sound like they're sick. The snails & worms are just the result of overfeeding the tank. It didn't crash, meaning it can't support any life.

I have a 75G that's 21" tall and have a 3 t5ho over it. I have to place it 8" above the tank so I'd get med-high lights that's 50-60 PAR at the substrate.
