Feeling guilty

I have been sick for a week and I have barely enough strength to do anything for my betta's. Am I a bad mommy?

I don't think you are~ Is your betta in your room with you? if so at least he can see you, and you could talk to him and stuff. baby blue is in my room so i can always watch and talk to him. I get sick quite a bit, so i feel bad when i cant do a water change right on time, but once i can i do it, and he always is fine~ when im sick to where i cant feed him i makesure to have my mom do it^.^

I have 4 tanks near me, other 5 are spaced out. I had enough strength to feed them that's about it

i don't think you are. :V a few months back, i was sick for a whole week with some kind of stomach issue. couldn't get off the floor unless it was to go hurl. i felt horrible, because i couldn't change my betta's water. they got fed, thanks to my niece, but their water wasn't cleaned.

they didn't seem to mind. my sensitive boy, Sniper, was mopey, but everyone else was fine. .3.

so, i don't think your bettas mind too much. just give them a water change when you feel better, and extra treats. 8U

I was treating Lucifer 2's tail and I feel bad because he has been swimming in dirty water. :(

Oh, Shaina I hope you get better quickly..do you have anyone that maybe able to help you, and as long as it doesnt go too long, a week is ok, I have seen a friend of mine, only do 1-2 changes 1x a month, and her fishy's fine, I don't reccomend it, but when your sick, and you dont have help..you dont have much choice..Hope all goes well, with you and your fishys:)
