This nearly dead boy in less than 1 inch of cloudy filthy water was a goner. The clerk was unpacking more newly arrived betas. I tried to gain his compassion by showing him this dead floating fish but it wasn't going to happen and the fish tried to turn over. As most of you have done I took him home to let him die in peace in a clean bowl of water. That was earlier this week.
It appears careful attention to testing the water, warmth and a moderate amount of food is all he needed.
