Hey everyone! Can't remember if I posted about the progress of Walter...so I'll just do it now
I waiting for about a month for that perfect betta to come along....finally found him a 16 hour drive away on vacation....he looked so sickly and his left ventral fin was torn...he is a king betta...he looked miserable sitting in about and inch and a half of water in the same size cup as the normal bettas...very dirty of course...so I grabbed him, a 1/3 gallon betta keeper and some food for the drive home, water conditioner (did three water changes in that time)...then he went straight into krolls old planted 5.5 gallon that I had kept running for the next betta...so anyway, this is what he looked like day 1....(he had very bad stress stripes, too...even in the store
And this is him now: he is very friendly, always swimming up right away when I walk by, follows me around...never really flares, builds big bubble nests for me
his fins have grown and colored up, he is extremely friendly...like a big Teddy bear...and his ventral fin is still growing back, slowly but surely
and he likes to lay in his plants
Sorry about the bad pictures...my iPad is being dumb....
so I'll upload the better pictures when I can
Thanks for looking!
