Ial

Was given a pretty little betta yesterday from a store because he seems to have a bump below his caudel fin(sp ). Owner said breeder said he always has had it... (don't really believe him but whatever ) an employee went and bagged him up and said please take him... (owner of store might dump him . ) Anyway I ajve indian almond leaves (every large 0 and have no idea how to use them. I crushed up some several months ago and put them o a gallon of water. Can I still use the water from the gallon after several months / Do people drop a huge leaf in the tank ?/ How does one use the stuff ? I would love to use the tinted water in the gallon jug. Thanks

I just drop the leaf in. I am not sure about using the old water... It may have higher ammonia since it has sat for a while... and it is stagnant, and old.

The whole (or halved) leaf adds security to a new fish, and the conditioning properties are awesome.

As for the bump, I want to assume it is probably a tumor, but a picture would be helpful.

zThanks Sena,
HE died this morning and you were correct as it burst . Poor guy. At least he got out of his half cup of water, and swam around a 5 gallon with lots of plants for a few hours...

Awww I am sorry </3 But you know what, you were a good person for taking him in knowing it was something that was wrong with him.
