ange Posted September 21, 2020 Share Posted September 21, 2020 The worst that I can remember receiving is when I had my first betta and it came home with fin rot. I had looked for treatments and seen that aquarium salt was recommended for initial treatment and started to do that. When he didn't improve, I went to a forum (not here) for advice. The recommendation that I received was to do a full water change to get the salt out of the system and use ONLY Seachem Stressguard as treatment, because salt and meds are harmful. That betta died within weeks because the fin rot continued advancing to the point where it affected his body. I'm not mad at the people who gave me that advice because it probably worked on their fish that came home with a less advanced disease. I'm upset that I let misinformation get the best of me and I killed a fish because of it. I believe that every hobbyist will make every mistake but it doesn't sting any less that I messed up with treating disease. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
