i know i'm doing everything i can for them, but it still upsets me. for two beautiful fish, who have such huge personalities, to just lay there, it breaks my heart.
Cup's such a bitter old man, and has been through so much. ick, tail issues all over the place, then, i swear to you, he's been greiving the loss of my CT female, Freya. he was so active and cheerful when she was alive. i'd let them flare at each other once or twice a day, and he enjoyed it, strutting his stuff like he was someone important. i honestly think he liked her. x: don't tell me they can't fall in love, cause he did. >.>; after she died, he didn't flare at any other females. not Lulu, not Chappy, not Caroline. he won't flare at them. males, he gets violent with, banging against the side of the tank. >.>; but, he ignores the ladies. i haven't found any betta he reacts so manly for... lol
and, Caroline... i miss my active, friendly, cheery girl. she used to get so excited when i'd look at her. now... she just.... floats there. she still gets excited about food, but even running my fingers over the top of her tank, tapping on it, doesn't excite her like it used to. not even seeing Ichi did anything(>.>; he doesn't flare. so, he didn't do anything but swim. xD). i have Ichi in her tank for now, while i treat her with the meds, but it's not the same. :/ he's not bright. he blends into his plants. camo-betta. xD
