New from Kansas City. Need guidance!
Hello! So I just became the owner of a 3 year old betta that previously belonged to my sister. She is moving to Japan so I am adopting her betta. I really don't know anything about fish and really could use some guidance.
My parents went down to Tennessee to visit my sister and brought the betta back with them. They brought him over today and set him up in his tank while I was at work. When I got home from work, I noticed that his fins look a little clamped. When I have seen him before his fins did not look like this. I don't know if this is normal, but I am very worried about it. I really don't want anything bad to happen to him! I am worried that maybe the water isn't right for him? He has a heater so the water is at 72 degrees.
Is there anyone from the KC area that could give me some advice or maybe come and look at him if he doesn't get better? I've tried searching for help online but it is all so confusing. I am hesitant to do anything to the tank or water because I am afraid I will make it worse.
Any advice would be really appreciated.
