I decided to go to an actual aquarium store (Big Al's) to get a sponge filter and air pump. The stores near me don't carry sponge filters
Made a stop to look at the Bettas they had, and of course got sucked in!
They were in house in glass bottles and jars, very clean water! No dead fish. One had an injury and they took him off the shelf and the one lady who works there was going to try and nurse him back to heath. They were kept at 80F (the whole fish areas was toasty! As they specialize in tropical fish), it made me so happy to see them taken care of
The lady who sold him to me was even happier that I knew he had to have 80F water, and at least 2 gallons of space
Firefly, Male, Red Marble Halfmoon
And some pictures of my Dragonfly. Plus their 15 gallon divided tank!
