I have had Rag for about 2 years.
He has been through a lot because when I first got him, I knew nothing about taking care of betta.
I noticed some weird red spots on him about 5 months ago, and after looking for a very long time, I came to the conclusion that he had hemorrhagic septicemia.
I have treated him with multiple things including maracyn and kanaplex, though none of them have worked.
I found that the reason he isn't getting better has to do with my water chemistry.
I live in the mountains, so we get our water from a well.
Our water chemistry is very odd.
Anyways, I can't lower it, no matter how hard I try, and Rag isn't getting any better.
He is active and happy-ish, but I can't take care of him anymore.
I have school, and lots of other fish to take care of, so it's very stressful having to deal with changing his water every other day and hope for his recovery.
He needs a good person to care for him, and who has better water quality.
Hes also hand trained and very friendly, but watch out, he bites really hard! He is a bit aggressive, I would be hesitant to put him with any other fish, though I have never tried before.
I live in Santa Cruz, California.
If you live nearby, it would be awesome if you could take him.
I can't ship him though because I am afraid he wont survive the journey, and I don't know how to either.
