That story is sort of similiar to my story, me and my grandma
were going to my neighbors birthday party,he already had a 20 gallon tank
I saw his fish tank and it was filthy I didn't understand why he
Didn't clean it. I asked him why and he said does the oceans water get changed
So my grandma saw 10 fish swimming around and she grab evey cup and dish
To rescue the poor fish and we did, after we grabbed the fish we hurried out of there
And went straight to the pet store and bought a new tank and acessories. Now the fish
Rest right above my grandmas tv so she can watch the fish.
There was 4 guppies,2 mollies,2 tetras,and 1 male betta
He called later to ask if we took the fish and we said yes and to believe he said he was going to dump the fish out anyway broke my heart

I have read some of these pages... I cannot believe this. That tank is just so gross. You are amazing for doing what you're doing!!
I would probably treat the bettas with maracyn 2 since they've been exposed to popeye...

As for the remaining fish, maybe you can try to get a good pic of them & rehome them on craigslist...

Poor goldfish. :(

I have been following your thread since day one and I am still in utter disbelief and disgust at how those people are "still" treating those fish. Plus, the fact that they outright LIED to you is .... good grief ... I can't even think of words to describe it !!!!

I will say it again..... YOU ARE TOTALLY AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so happy that you saved the Bettas. I do feel sorry for the other fishies.

I wish I lived near you ... so I could help you and unite with you to actually give those people a "piece of our Betta-Lovin' minds" right in their face!!

Hmmmmmm....how about a "sit-in" right in front of that tank....24/7 with posters and fish/betta care literature to hand out. Ahhh...on second thought we would probably need bail money.

I am sure your resuces will get better real soon .... you are THE BEST BETTA-HUMAN EVER as far as I am concerned

That just makes me want to cry :'( I can't believe there are so many people who don't care just because the creature doesn't have fur. Somehow we need to make others aware of how important fish health is too.
