Thank you! :)
Thanks so much for the advice! That's very helpful. I won't use the salt then. I've heard it can have a great effect on fish.
I'll look into filter coverings too. Last time I went to Petsmart I /did/ ask about it, and the lady gave me this weird look and silence. I was like, well, guess you don't have them then. -_-'
Ohh! That is a good idea. I was thinking I'd put hot glue lining along the edges of the water bottle just in case. I hate to lower the water to much and give her less space to swim! I'll be working on that asap.
Also, bad news. I think those scrapes on the sides of her head weren't scrapes. I think her gills are red?
I googled it, and everyone says it's ammonia poisoning. But, how can that be? I've been changing her water twice a week since I got her. :/ She shouldn't have any.
Gah. Maybe I should make a new thread about it. I don't know. I wonder if she's had red gills for awhile and I haven't noticed. She's black/silver, so it's somewhat had to see.
And, she does have some red coloring in her fins. But, I don't think bettas usually have red gills for coloring. :/ I don't know...
