Aw too bad. They looked like Kuantan to me. Definitely not Chukai or Rompin. I like the length of the fins your male has got.

eventually, no one in my country does bother to look at the difference between Betta Tussyae of different localities since they have no significant difference

I have to disagree /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> e.g. Chukai, Terengganu fish look pretty different from Kuantan fish (see my photo in the liv thread).

Thanks /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Hm yeah, the fry became free swimming and the male recovered. But he actually died shortly after for unknown reasons.

You've clearly been honing your photography skills Gustav. Great photos!

So are fish fry too small to contract ich?

Cake or death?

Frequent water change, with added japanese yellow powder, a bit of methaline blue and salt, water change almost on daily basis depending on condition, minimize feeding too

There is always a chance to cure something that is sicked, there are no guarantee of success but to give up trying, that'll be an end...

for the japanese yellow powder, it's common in local fish shop in my country, not sure if it's something you are familiar with, but this is a photo I found in google:

Not everything; dropsy...

No we dont have yellow powder here I'm afraid. What does it contain besides the obvious antibiotics?

haha, I had saved betta from dropsy before, only dead fish I can't do anything about

For the yellow powder, I've no clue of what it contain as it's in japanese packaging(I don't read japanese, thus it all makes no sense to me), but generally it's main function is still killing bacteria, I learned about this medicine from locals who are in the hobby for some times

Is it legal in the EU; would they approve and supply an official import (for stores) license?
