No worries, zpirani. My first betta was a red veiltail, and they're still my favourites out of all the long-finned fish. Your is a handsome feller, I hope he recovers quickly. :)

hmmm those I'd be a little more leary of. You'd have to boil/bake them to make sure it doesn't have a disease on it. Also it might not be the right rock for a tank. A lake has a lot of volume and bad rocks (among other nasty things) don't really affect it, but a tank is a very little amount of water to try to disperse harmful chemicals.

I would go to petsmart/petco and find their clearance section. You can sometimes find "river rocks" made for aquariums

I think there's a water thermometer. You could find it in the pet stores. Make sure it's the ones that go in the tank. With suction cups and is able to float. The ones that test from outside... Sucks IMO. :) Hope his fins heal!
