I complained once but nothing was done ( I don't think) So... I really want to take in a rescue this weekend while by bf is gone and get some shots of all the dead fish and start making a youtube video... there is one that makes me cry already up on youtube... I think spreading knowledge about bettas on a campus could help them out in this area...
BTW I never thought of this til I saw your thread! So thank you for inspiring all of us! <3 (And helping the little man)
That's a great dream :) All I think about is my next rescue, but I am going to wait until I upgrade Heart Breaker to a 5 gallon. I will then use his 2.5 gallon as another hospital tank. I saw 2 very young HMPK today that were very sick and I wanted to take both. I almost did but I need a new tank for Heart Breaker. I may get one tomorrow for him.
Well good luck on your future rescue, its very exciting but it can also be bitter sweet so you need to prepare for sad times also. I have been very lucky that my little guy did such a turn around so fast and I count my blessings every day.
