just an update!

Chance is doing so much better as of today! He is almost ready to be taken off the meds. he has learned to accept pellets though he still spits them out once in a while. he is actively swimming around and even flared up a little today.

the breathing unfortunately is still kind of rapid but it doesnt seem to bother him too much ^^

I will put him in the 10 gallon next week :)

Good for you, taking such great care of the poor fella. I'm sure Chance is so thankful for his new home. :) Good luck and keep us all updated on his progress! He sure seems like a tough little fish.

I placed him in the 10 gallon for a test run and it didn't go so well. the filter is too strong for him to swim so I have to find a way to baffle the filter (or downgrade to diff. filter, right now its rated for 10-20gal) and he got his head stuck between the divider and the glass so I need to buy more mesh/plastic to make a better one. divided tank fail. :<

I wanted him to kind of get use to plants, light, snails and having a betta next door so i opted to tear down the 10 divider and make a smaller one and he moved in with slade. they hate each to say the least. lol I have covererd the mesh with a plastic canvas so now, they can't see each other.

its kind of funny during feeding because both think I am going to feed them and become confused when i feed the other one.

here are some photos



still breathing really hard, this side of his face has bad ammonia burns in particular.


his better looking side, anal fin is still slightly clamped but his tail is now completely spread. I think the clamping will be completely gone by next week.

He really does look healthier! It's amazing he's doing so well. I can't believe the poor little guy survived in such horrid conditions...the ammonia readings made me shudder. Part of me thinks you should take a picture of him in his new home and show the floral lady how well he's doing now, so she can see exactly what she did wrong. I don't mean that to be spiteful to her or anything, but she was obviously horribly, horribly misinformed about bettas. Either way, I'm just glad he has a great home now. What a lucky betta!
