Aubrey Posted December 11, 2020 Share Posted December 11, 2020 After seeing all of the illnesses and parasites that are brought up on the forum daily I've determined that I must just be a lucky fishkeeper. I would like to be able to help these people with their fish, but I have next to no experience in that area. I would only be able to recite what the internet says and not be able to speak from experience. I have only encountered dropsy 3 times with 3 different bettas and was only successful treating once. Other than that I have had a bacterial infection, I think, outbreak in a shrimp colony. I think 4 instances of illness over 4 years is pretty lucky. *knocks on wood* I say I'm lucky because I am not a religious water changer/tester. My maintenance routine is not really a routine. I would say perhaps I'm ignorant to a lot of potential issues and signs, but I just don't lose many fish or shrimp and they seem healthy. Is anyone else just as lucky?
