    So maybe about two weeks ago I posted about an Betta with some supposed algae on it tail that was white. I had fielded many probing questions to no avail, from water quality to fungus.

    I finally found the problem, and man o man, why did I not catch on sooner! I was using and water conditioner with stress coat-(aloe etc..), the API water conditioner + stresscoat, and I decided to see if this was the cause. I got some generic tetra stuff, and started to use it. I change the Betta's water 2-3x's weekly, and within two days, the stuff was gone, and the plants that I have also look less slimy and are doing better!

    So I guess the moral is, if the fish dosen't need more slime coat protection, leave him alone! Im just glad it wasen't an fungus!

    I'm glad to read your fish did not have anything serious

    Sometimes those porducts are really not required. This is a good example of that.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
