She's in AQ salt and stress coat now.. That hole was not there before. I just noticed it when I got off work... The other fin damage was from shipping and was healing with just clean water and some stress coat. She's otherwise fine, super active. She jumps a lot, and HIGH. Makes water changes a little hard, lol. She always swims around the siphon and tries to get to my fingers, and she really likes swimming in the water as I'm pouring it back into the tank, lol. My other girls try to get as far away as possible.

Well Okami is doing better and her fins are healing nicely... DaBaDee, however, is not doing so good. He's clamped, pale, lethargic, slow to respond, and of course, pooping white again the day after I take him off treatment because his poo was nothing but normal. At least he is still eating well and his buoyancy issues seem to come and go.. He's been sleeping a whole lot, so I've been keeping his tank lights off for most of the day. When I leave them on, he disappears into his cave or hides behind the filter to rest.

I'll hopefully have meds I can feed him soon... And since I've never had issues with his appetite, hopefully it will work better than the meds you add directly to the water. I know I won't have to fight with him to get him to eat. I think its the only reason he gets out of bed in the morning.

Good luck!

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^

Thank you!

I posted these pictures on the face behind the name thread so I figured I should post them here, too.


This one is incredibly old, but one of my favorites.


This one is more recent. I did experiments with self portraits on my new camera (well I guess it isn't really new anymore, lol).


And this is my boyfriend of two years since I reference him a lot and I also love his face. More experimenting with my camera, as well, ha.


Aaand this is a recent picture off my phone. It's unedited just so you can't say they were all edited. :p

He's not looking good still, but he is alive and making some attempts to move around. He looks like a ghost.

Yeah he still looks horrible but he was a little more active today :) woo!



Her fins look shorter in the second picture because of the angle. She was not cooperating, lol. But anyways, she's healing up quickly :)

Edit: btw, before and after pictures from when I treated her for fin rot.

Prepare for pic spam. :)













They are all in black and white because the stupid lids on the critter keepers make the pictures strange hues and I didn't have the patience to fix the color on all of them, lolol. I'm glad that Lotus has now developed enough color that I can tell her and Stella apart, even in B&W.

So I'm at Walmart and apparently they just got a whole new stock in - tons of bettas. A few very pretty CTs and one white/pastel VT. All the females but one have no color... One pretty blue girl. There was also one girl who was giving me "the look" if you know what I mean, lol. But I have no adequate equipment for a new one right now and I'm really wanting to get all my fish from now on from a breeder... Walmart just makes me want them RIGHT NOW. Euurrgg!
