I brushed off ALL the algae on the glass, trimmed my water wisteria then fished out all the leaves. I plan on doing a 33% water change tomorrow to keep my new bettas water nice and clean coz' he's got fin rot from the store I bought him from. :(

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

I would do more water changes especially that he has fin rot. Do like 50% not sure how big is your tank. But even for 10 gall or even bigger 50% is better of course along with gravel vacuuming. I hope he will get better :(

I called mine fat....

And then fed him.
Can't resist his charm. He comes to the front of the tank, wiggling like a puppy when I enter the room x3

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

I bought Furan-2 for Derpy fins. He hasn't been able to swim in like a month and a half. Epsom, fasting, parasite meds and tetracycline have not worked. After this I give up

Aww im sorry :
I really hope it works but I think I damaged his swim bladder about 2 months ago . I kinda squished him between the tank wall and the cup. He just looks so...pathetic swimming upside down, sideways, ect. I had him in 3 teaspoons of epsom for a month and it didnt help at all.

My Mini 5" Siphon Vacuum finally arrived ....

Used it to do a minimum 50% water change for my Sparkle .... really cleaned up a lot of yuk from underneath/around my Luster Gems.

Using the "stir and dip" method took toooo long and did not seem to get as much of the yuk out as I wanted to.

Very easy to use and Sparkle is a super-happy Betta now
