;D Good job everyone....your fish sound like they're spoiled little buddies :)
Today I caught Omelette nipping his fins AGAIN....they have been reduced to about half their sides, with nasty little serrated edges :(
I put the mirror up to his tank to take his mind off his tail for a while....seems to be working (for now)
And I fed him. That's all I did today xD

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

Today I bought Chicory a new heater - he's turning into a darn tailbiter, and the non-adjustable heater in his tank keeps it a few degrees below ideal. So to help his pretty tail heal...

I bought Lavatail fungus medicine I am thinking at this point the round tank kills OR he has a low immune system. I've already nursed him through one case of fuzzies, which was immediately followed by a bout of tail rot, and he just finished his salt for the tail rot last night...I see fuzzies again. This MIGHT just be some slime coat, but I saw fuzzy gunk on the wall of his tank too, so I am doubting it. IALs from Amy Lin are on the way, but odds are only 50/50 they get here before I go on vacation next weekend

While buying those items, I also saw a boyo at Petco that made me want to put the divider back in Ghosts' tank even though I know it's too small for two. He had a bubblenest built in his cup and everything. As sad as it made me to leave him, I know I can't have them all and it would be a bad idea to buy a new fellow and then almost immediately abandon him for a week.

But...dayam.

Yesterday afternoon, I changed the water in his tank and in lieu of salt, added some Atison's BettaSPA and an IAL. This morning I awoke to see a bubblenest! This betta, who seems particularly difficult to name, had never built a bubblenest before.

Just fed my betta buddies today. I also checked to see if the planaria in one tank has gone down and it has. :)

I also set up a new tank for a betta fish I'm getting today.

Yesterday all of the bettas got big water changes! And I bought all of the rescues new Terra Cotta pots for their tanks! Today I will be redecorating the 10 gallon in preparation for the King betta I plan on bringing home this weekened, And redecorating Juno's 3 gallon with a beach theme.

Everyone will also get brine shrimp for dinner tonight!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
