We were in Petco this afternoon picking out a Betta for my (second) tank. I had already picked one out when I came across another little guy. He's not a baby, but you can tell he's relatively young.
He was swimming all around and he came right over to the edge of his cup and stared right at me. The label on the cup said he was a Halfmoon, but I have no idea if he is or not. His fins are a mess.
I couldn't leave him there so I brought him home. Our daughter has a 3 gallon aquarium set up that currently doesn't have anything in it. We're going to put him in there for her and he'll be her fishy -- although, of course, he's really my responsibility.
What can I do to help make him better? Is this something that needs to be treated or does he just need time?
I bought a heater at the same time I picked him up since that's the only thing she didn't have.
And the one I picked out for myself. Still trying to think of names.
Sorry for the poor quality, all I had at the moment was my cellphone.
