I just wanted to let
you know that the Betta Zing and Betta First Aid Kit
saved my fishes life. Co-incidentally, my fish
got sick with ich the day before the First Aid Kit
arrived. I wasn't sure what was wrong at
first. The next day they were really feeling
bad. I have never had fish before and had no
real clue what to do.
Lo and behold, my
order showed up right in the nick of time.
I know this sounds like I made it up, but I swear
that's what happened. I read the instructions
you enclosed and went online to find out how to
diagnose the fish. I followed your
instructions and in 4 days, my fish are back to
I was really sweating
it for a couple of days. Once the water temp
hit 85 degrees, the ich went swimming in the Betta
Zing and that was all she wrote! Now my fish
are swimming and flaring away. Thank you so
much for all your help. Oh, and the plants you
sent are awesome. The fish love them.
I wanted to sing
your praises and will testify or give you a verbal
advertisement any time you need that your Betta medical
kit works!! Let me explain and I'll have pictures
to back up what I say.
I went to
Petsmart looking to replace a betta my 5 year old daughter had
that died. In fact, all the betta's we've purchased
usually die within 5 months. This one day I
went alone to Petsmart without my little girl to just pick up
a fish and replace the one that died. I was not looking for
anyone in particular.
There were rows
and rows of bettas. None looked good at all. There
was one shelf where all the betta's were in dirty water and I
think they were going to dump them! They were sick, fins
clamped, and colors were faded. I saw this one little
guy who kept starring at me with eyes that cried, "Please
don't leave me in this dirty water. Help me. Save me."
I picked up several cups looking for a healthy one but this
one betta kept tugging at my heart. I decided he was
worth giving a chance at life but thought he wouldn't
make it as bad as he looked and because I have a poor
record at keeping them alive. For $3.85 I figure I had
nothing to lose. I brought the little guy home and named
him Sumo. My daughter fell in love with him immediately.
I had purchased
your betta medical kit for $25.00 a couple of weeks before in
preparation of purchasing another fish and trying to get it to
stay alive longer than 5 months. Immediately I placed
"Sumo" in water I had prepared a couple of nights
before with all the things you are suppose to do and add to
it. I also placed him in a new, bright fish bowl.
I followed your instructions regarding your fungus
eliminator since Sumo appeared to have fin rot. I
treated him for 3 days then changed all the water as you
suggested. In the new water I added one drop of Betta
Zing. The pictures below show Sumo's improvement in only
3 days!!!!! Unbelievable. Finally, someone who knows
what they are talking about and someone who cares about these
intelligent fish. THANK YOU. If you want me to endorse
your products, I'd be glad to do so or just use my e mail!
Lifeless, dull, fins clamped, not swimming
By Day 3:
Bright RED! swimming, open fins :)
I HAVE TO TELL YOU when I woke up the next morning after the day
I put in the BettaZing...My little fish was back to being alert,
happy and starving! I was in awe. I have had two bettas (not the
same ones) consistently for 4 years. BOY am I sorry I didn't
find your site before now... It would have saved many lives!
Thank you very much, I am into my second water change now and
finally having time to read more and what you told me to do, I
will now add the tripple sulfa and hope that will unclamp the
fins. Again....thank you soooo much and I will get more familiar
with your site!!!!|
Faith for the prompt service!
Your Step by step guidelines for breeding are just outstanding,
and yes they work like a charm!
Thank you for the hard work in preparing such an informative
site! Looking forward to talking to you again soon!
I just wanted to let you know that the microworm and vinegar eel
order came through beautifully. Work had called me out of
town when they arrived, but my roommate (who is not a fish
person and is actually
worm-phobic) was able to follow the instructions you sent
perfectly. So by the time I got home every thing was set
up and looking great.
wanted to thank you….my betta is 110% better….I happened to
read one of your testimonials about fin rot and how a person
nursed their betta back to health with the help of your
anti-fungal medicine. After 2 treatments, my betta is
actively swimming once again…instead of always sitting on the
Your shipment (microworm/Vin-eels)
arrived to India on 28-April in 'PERFECT' condition. Thanks for
your help. And thanks for the wonderful gift you enclosed with
that shipment. Was surprised to see that!!!
I got the box on Saturday, the day it was delivered. That
day, I “planted” 2 of the ferns and some moss in my
aquarium, and a fern and some moss in a fish bowl. My
partner told me that it looks awesome and how impressed he is
with how alive it looks. Thank you SO much for such a
Faith, this is Elodie, from France.
received your cultures 1 week ago. The customs didn't open the
parcel, so I've got now enough good living food for my betta's
babies. Unfortunately, a lot of them died during the
respiratory system formation, I just kept 5 of them and they
really seem to enjoy the microworms and vinegar eels.
I did enjoy our business and your reliability. Thank you so much
I hope that one day we'll see each other in CA where I hope to
I've had my moss for a little while now, so I thought you would
enjoy some feedback on my experience with it so far.
When I first got my ferns and moss, the ferns looked great.
They really are pretty plants. I got them for a couple of
one-gal tanks, but the tanks are down right now, so I plopped
them into a gallon jar of their own. They seem to be doing
fine, hanging out and waiting for something else in their
The moss, however, I regarded with skepticism. (...) But,
you've got some credibility with me now, so I decided to just
give it a chance. I pinched off two blobs and put one blob
in each of two betta jars (each jar is 2 qts).
It wasn't for another couple of days that I realized something
different was taking place. Since I change my jars every 3
or 4 days, I am used to seeing the changes in the water that
normally accompany betta
respiration. That's what I WASN'T seeing. The water
after 3 or 4 days looked as if it had barely been lived in.
Clearly the nitrites were being mediated; that could only mean
that the moss was hard at work. I am liking this guy more
and more. I may have to get another clump, just to have
plenty of it around.
My microworm cultures and Java Ferns arrived yesterday. My
bettas seem happy with their new plants. :-) I like
how they look in the tanks and jars.
I was surprised at how simple and clear the microworm
instructions are. I'm going to start my culture this week.
I'm very excited about trying spawning with the proper food and
setup, this time. It will be my fourth try, but my first
with the right setup. Needless to say, I have no fry to
show for my previous attempts. :-) We'll see how
future attempts go!
Thanks very much for your website and products!
I purchased your Betta First Aid Kit and the ailing betta is
doing better. I suspect though that he was
sickly when we purchased him and then got fin rot when we went
on a short vacation and his water became too dirty.
Anyway, I thought I would use the Betta Zing as a preventative
measure one week out of each month as you suggested.
Thank you for your assistance!
site is by far the most informative (not to mention
entertaining) site I have found thus far. I have spent
hours pouring over it!!!
I just purchased your Happy Betta Breeder Kit and some java moss
and I am really looking forward to breeding my first pair in a
few weeks. Thanks so much for providing such great
information and useful products to help feed the betta
Colorado Springs, CO
My shipment arrived today. Thank you for prompt delivery.
Everything arrived in good shape, including the java moss.
The betta on my desk at work is now checking out the moss and
wondering what Mommy has put in his bowl. :-)
As for the first-aid kit, I feel good about having proper betta
meds, especially now that I have about 50 two-week-old
grandbettas to raise!
I am absolutely thrilled with the First Aid Kit - your directions
are great and reveal about of your sense of humor, too which is
Thanks for everything,
I just wanted to
say that I received my Betta first aid kit, java moss and java
fern order yesterday and am so very pleased with all
products! The bag of ferns was abundant ~ 8 plants in all
~ and the moss is also more than generous. Haven't had to use
the medication but it is good to be prepared. : ) Thanks for
making these items available at such reasonable cost and for
shipping so quickly. My betta tank has been beautified!
cultures are doing awesome! I started 3 batches from the starter
you sent me and recently started three more batches (trying my own
medium mixture) and they are multiplying faster than I can feed
them to my fry ... hehehe!
I LOVE IT! And my fry thank you from the bottoms of their tiny
full tummies! Hehe (...)
Thank you for the
prompt shipment of the Betta First Aid Kit and the java moss. It
arrived yesterday. It was such a generous clump that I divided
it between Linus the betta fish and the goldfish tank. I’m so
glad to have help with keeping his water clean. He’s in a two
gallon aquarium but he doesn’t like the movement of the filter.
There is no way to slow it down and he was riding waves like he
was surfing. I turned off the filter and am just using it like a
big bowl but I’ve been concerned about contaminated water
between weekly cleanings. Last night, every time I checked on
Linus he was checking out the moss and eventually stretched out
next to it.
I purchased a
first aid kit from you and it worked beautifully on my two
boys. They're done being medicated, and we're going back to our
regular water changes now. (...) You've got great products.
The water turning pink after 24 hours caught me a bit by
surprise, but I went with the old fishkeeper's adage: panic
kills more fish than diseases. It worked nicely, and my
crowntail (he had treacherous fungus right from the start...
could have been stress from transport or something) is building
beautiful bubble nests, growing more finnage, and generally
behaving very nicely.
I also bought some
moss from you. I didn't put it in the tanks until this week
because they were being medicated, and I didn't want to kill the
moss, but they're in now. My boys nipped at the moss for the
first few days, but they seem to be leaving it alone now. Jerry
Garcia (my CT purple marble/red butterfly) started building a
beautiful bubble nest the day after I put in the moss. He's got
one of the fluffiest nests I've seen yet. I don't have any
other decorations in the tank at the moment because I sterilized
everything once I noticed the fungus on Jerry. Alpha (my first
betta) is two years old, humongous, and is slowing down a bit.
That's one of the reasons I got my Jerry.
I won't take up
any more of your time. I just wanted to mention that you have
great products. I'm so glad to finally have a source for that
JFE (I can't get it here)! Do let me know if you can get me a
new set of instructions, though. I could really use them.
I received my order
today for the Betta first aid kit. Everything looks good and the
instructions are easy to follow. I also wanted to say thank you
for your wonderful web site! I wish I had found it sooner. It's a
great resource and lots of fun.
In the future I plan to order some fish from you. In the meantime
I am the proud owner of two very handsome bettas - a red pet-store
mutt named Opie and a very outgoing yellow crown tail named
Hizashi.I am glad to have the first aid kit in case anything
Thanks again for everything and keep up the good work!
I tried one of he
tea bags in a spawn that I set up yesterday and had a bubble nest
in no time from my male that couldn't even get two bubbles to
stick together before. Even his lady is blowing some bubbles!
Great product and easy to use. Thanks for everything!
just wanted to let you know that I received the plants yesterday
and they are just beautiful!!! My 3 boys are going to be
so happy! Thank you so very much!
I just wanted
to say THANK YOU!! I got my cultures and java fern and have
the them all setup per the instructions. Thanks for the
quick delivery and the detailed instructions!! You have a
wonderful site with lots of GREAT information. With our
new Betta Habit (oops Hobby, lol ) your site has lots of
great info. We look forward to purchasing more of your
products and one day purchasing a pair of your awesome
