Yay! The IAL has encouraged both Stu and Spike to make some fab looking bubblenests, and Ace has totally un-clamped and his colours are getting better as well. The heater is working its magic.
As for my inspections of two pet stores today, and a trip to the RSPCA, I was quite angry, but first, on the lighter note, the RSPCA tanks are fantastic! They had 4 CT's all in 13.5L tanks with heaters and filters. Some where in community tanks as well. As for another petstore, I wanted to scoop up all the betta's and run for it. They were on sale for 5.95 and thankfully there were only 4 left, but they were all in appaling state. Dirty water, clamped and fin rot. I am so sick and tired of seeing this, I'm thinking its about time the betta community banded together to help these poor fish.
As for my deal with my mum, my learners test is this week, If I don't get it, I think I might just cry.
