I just came back from a bike ride with a fish!
Story: Today I went to go get my books for high school (EEEEEEE [Yes I am a freshmen!]) When I got home I poked my fish, Ula. Who likes to bite his tail D: I gave him a water changed and rembered that its thurseday! Every thursday a outside market is on the street! I got on my bike and took off. Each time I go (I BUY ROCKS :DDD) I pass by a crazy man who sells bambo and bettas. ALL of the bettas I believe are boy VTs. He has like 20 of them in TINY cups that aren't even filled with water all the way! THEY ARE SO DIRTY! I asked him how many times he changes the water and he said ONLY ONCE A WEEK!!!! Those poor guys... I told him that isn't right, I change mine dalie for my 2 gallon tank! He said no, only once a week. I wanted to eat his face... I looked at them to see if there are any sick ones I should save. None were sick that I could see but none were healthy of flaring. I looked at this pretty white one with pink on the ege of its fins. He acted a lot like Ula so I put him down. I picked up this multi color little guy. I feel in love.~ <3 Then I asked the crazy man what water he has it in. He said drinking water! I was done with wanting to eat his face... I WANTED TO BITE HIS HEAD OFF! I said that isn't right but he ignored me. So I bought the little guy and ran to find some warm bottled water. Then I ran to the bath room to dump the water out of my thick water bottle ( I was drinking tap). I put the new water in there. His water was SO dirty... I put him in my hand and he jumped! I grabbed him by the tail (sorry little fish) and I got him on there! I biked as fast and smothly home, stopping once a while to get him fresh air. When I got hom I quickly got him in to a 3 gallon tank filled with conditioned water, marbles, and a egg cave. Ula is flaring and freking out.
Qs: His bottem fin has an odd red spot, is that blood? What is he, is it a he? Should I put some AQ salt in there??
Sorry I'm in a rush, bad spelling... and bad camera!
