i just got a veil tail betta and he is extremely active when the water temo is at 79 degrees but not at 78 or 80 is this normal. and his name is whiskers, the reason i names him that is because i was asking him what he wanted his name to be and i had a list of 10 different names and when i said whiskers he came to the side of his bowl and flared all of his fins. i feed him the gold bio betta food and i use a stress calmer liquid drops and a freshwater salt to help him better breath. it seems to help. my only concern is the fin under him is splitting it seems to not bother him at this point but it does concern me. how do i fix this or is the splitting normal for a veil tail betta? it looks like 2 strings hanging down from his belly.

@nehemmiahludden - You might want to post in the Betta Keepers section and post a picture for maximum replies. The two ventral fins hanging down? I don't know what you mean- what seems wrong with them. 79F is fine for his water.

We bought double leather work gloves so we could cut Oliver's nails. lol BUT I bought him a fun toy to make up for the stress. He's such a drama queen.

I have to contact the vets office. Odd, they usually contact me to remind me of her check up. Well while talking to the vet I need to see about getting a sedative to get her groomed. She will NOT let anyone near her.

Oh wow. I seen something on YT about a persian who hated being groomed. Sedatives, lol. Fortunately, due to the mess of long haired cats and Matt's allergy to their fur, we will only keep short haired cats. No grooming! Except for nails.

My little Wallflowers should be picked up to go to their new home next Friday. See ya assassin snails.
