^___^ actually. if she was really stocked in May, she was really lucky the cup grew algae. it may look gross to us, but it actually absorbed the Ammonia, and that's probably how she survived till today. On the other hand, some other bettas who are in crystal clear ammonia filled water... probably perished a long time ago.

Congrats on your first fish! Im sure you will do good and you'll have fun with it . Fishkeeping really is an addiction with all the beautiful varieties, plant choices and accessories!

I'm not sure Frazzle...hers was the only one in a group of about 15 that was dirty...sadly, it's like she was forgotten

Thanks again, all of you, for your kind comments and support She seems very alert and active and good appetite, but I will continue to keep a close eye on her for sure.
