Well.. I told myself NO MORE bettas, as I already have 13 shipping out to buyers and one older guy (Cornelias) and 12 sorority girls.... But I just cant help myself.
I took a trip to my local walmart today and came across a cup with a inch of green water on the betta shelf...I took a closer look and there was a poor little guy swimming around in it! I was horrified! I watched him for a min. or so...and noticed that he was swimming in a tight circle nipping at what was left of his tail. I also noticed that he had redish gills (due to water quality)
So I took him home.. Housed him in a 1.5g bowl with a heater (81degrees) added some aqua salt and some Ich away, and sat him by Cornelias.
He ate one pellet and one bloodworm, but will not eat what is left of what I offered him.. He is swimming, not well, as his whole tail is gone, but he is swimming.
Also. I havent seen him nip at his tail since I brought him home..So im hoping that will stop for good. But his gills are still that reddish color...Will the aqua salt take care of that..
Is there anything else I could do for this guy?
