hello all! I recently bought a driftwood from petco and had it in my tank with my betta fish (may he Rest In Peace) but he died of Dropsy. Is it ok if I put the drift wood in another tank or is it contaminated? The driftwood has a plant growing in it. Thanks!
The water on the plant can carry a disease, but your describing a bacterial infection so this is different. Firstly, Dropsy is a secondary disease which means it had something else first. Also bacterial infections don't normally spread unless wounds are present. Viral on the other hand do.
