    Hi Lewis, welcome to FishLore :)
    I'm sorry you're having this problem. I've never had to deal with it but from what I understand it's horrible.
    If your fish looking healthy now, I'm not sure what you're asking.

    Edit: Oh one more thing. Is your tank 150 gallona like it says in the title or 150 Liters as listed in your aquarium info?

    hi welcome to fl. is your issue that you keep having to start your tanks over because you keep having problems?

    how are the bettas doing in your tank? it's usually recommended that each betta be kept alone.

    also, is your tank cycled? in my opinion, most tank issues arise from an uncycled tank (although clearly not the callamus worms). If you aren't familiar with the nitrogen cycle, please click on the link and read up on it. Your tank info says you understand it. Do you know what your ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate readings are?

    hmm... also, if your tank is 40 gallons, you may be overstocked...
