I really need to learn some patience instead of diving right into things without introducing myself to the community first. Let's see, I'm Brittania and at the moment I only have a single male CT. As much as I hate purchasing bettas from chain stores like Meijer and Walmart, I had to take him. I got him because I felt so bad for him. His fins were horrible! You would've wanted to help him too if you saw how they were.
Anyway, I got him a couple of months ago, and now he's doing so much better than he did in that cup. I put him in a filtered and heated 10 gallon tank and now his fins are much stronger. When I post pictures in the proper section, you'll definitely see the difference.
I might get myself 5 more bettas, but that all depends on my situation at home. We've been having issues between some members of our family and it hasn't turned out good. I don't want to get 5 more fish just to have to move them or something. Plus, the whole incident is stressing me out and I'm very upset about it still. I don't know if I can handle anymore animals at the moment because of that. I've been a bit unstable with my emotions this week.
