Tearful rant...another Petco betta probably dying in my care. It's making me feel sick to my stomach.

Sorry to hear this. Why do you think this keeps happening? Are they in really bad condition when you get them?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Yes, very much so. Let me clarify, the fish themselves might be a bit on the slow side, but physically look healthy. It's the water conditions in their cups that are in very bad condition. The history I have with Petco is very long, so for reference: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=79983

I wish I knew the reasons why. Danzig is in a real bad way this morning. Just kinda floating at the top, at times I think he is already gone, but then he takes a breath or flutters a pectoral.

I'm sorry, Dragonflie. :( You've tried your best for them, though.


Rant- so my mom's going to the hospital because apparently her stomach is really bugging her... she thinks it's a G.I bleed, which are considered "medical emergencies" in the words of Wikipedia. It's one thing after another around here... first my grandma, who is still in hospital recovering from her stroke, and now my mom... It's so stressful.


In the hobby for 9 years.

Wow... that is a good deal. Planted Aquariums Central is really awesome but she charged me like $18.00 shipping (priority) O.o. It's almost worth it because she sends tons of extra. I ordered one Echinodorus parviflorus "Tropica" sword and she sent me TWO and they were both gorgeous and flowering so I got like 4 for the price of one.

I guess I'll build an order with both and see which one seems like the better deal.

Rant:

Svedka's tail's rays are almost...Idk...stuck together. He refuses to flare and looks...strange.

Baller's got fin bleed, and Im BEYOND nervous that awful rot he got that ruined his tail will come back to him. I cant tell if the two might be related, but Im upset about it.

I dont have what I need to cure them atm and since I let this chick down the hall borrow my QT (which probably has a rotting fish in it, stupid @$hfjdd!!! D:<), I have to heal the kids in tupperware. Im saddd...

Now I have to pack my crap up and drive home in the dark AND RAIN only to get like 4 hours of sleep and get up and go to work. I'm beyond livid.
