    Sick Glo-lites

    I've had horrible luck with glo lites lately.. Bought 6, they all died overnight.. Was given 6 more, within 24 hours their bodies were very white. It appears to be under the skin, so I'm thinking bacterial.. At the same time, I wonder if it might be some sort of weird fungus. I bought some...

    Old Betta Going Blind?

    I have a betta that's pushing 4 years.. His eyes have recently become quite cloudy, and I'm not sure he can see anymore.. The water stays clean, so I don't see it as some sort of illness-type thing.. Is this common with older bettas?
