i think Gimpy has a bit less tail than your boy did. only diff is, Gimpy has one sliver of tail in tact, but it's so thin, doesn't do much good. i'm glad your boy pulled through, he's amazing now.

Their community fish tanks were also horribly grungy. Is it really so much effort to take a little care to make a living creature's existence at least bearable?

Some days, I really want to just grab these people and shove them into a tiny little box where they have to live in their own excrement and have all of three feet to walk around in.
Amen!! Preach it!

It doesn't sound normal. D: But I'm new to betta fish keeping, so IDK.

Yay that he's made it to day 2 though!
