Unhappy Crowntail Episode

Found a beautiful white and red butterfly CT today when I went in the shop to get salt. Took him home and realized he was a very sick boy. He had white fluff all over his rear torso and he couldn't actually swim to the top of the bowl to breath.

I took him back and gave the lady who was tending the bettas an earful. Then I noticed this guy who I didn't see before tucked in the back. He had to stay in his cup while I boiled the bowl and it's accessories for a good while. And he seems fine.

I'm still a little heartbroken about the first fish but here's the new nameless boy:





So much for eight is enough, eh?

Thank you! And sorry, I'm just a little paranoid now. He's a really shy boy but he's sweet. Renquist (his shelf buddy) doesn't like him one bit though. lol

He has pretty unique coloring. Maybe that's why you're seeing "velvet"?? I sure hope he doesn't have it.

Good luck with him.

Thank you, I will definitely be keeping a close eye on him just in case.

Oh and his name is officially Farnham. :)
