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.

What's hard about it is the lack of information we have when buying these sick fish in Petstores. I wish they wrote the date they got them on their cups and discounted them or sent them to people who wil care for them and get them healthy if they had been in their store too long. I hope everybody that loves these beautiful fish would consider helping a Betta in need. I know I will be doing this for a very long time :)

Do not use an undergravel filter it's bad for long finned fish plus in bigger tanks use add on filters with low currents.

99% of the time the store gets credit if the fish dies so they do not loose money. The only one who looses is the sick betta because no one helped it.
