Got a new betta today and im calling him my rescue because he is sooo small and his cup was sooo dirty. i think i have seen worse well i know i have seen worse but he was still in bad shape. he was laying at the bottom of the cup. moved a bit when i picked him up to look at him. went up for air and i thought he had a chance if i got him. think hes been at the store for awhile. poor little dude. His name is bluey. he is laying at the bottom of the tank i have. its only 1 gallon or a little more. its this little tank i bought at walmart awhile ago. figured its good for him to heal up in and grow in. i already had gravel and a little heater and a thermometer thankfully.
My question is i plan on doing daily partial water changes. do i still have to do a full clean once a week? i know this can be stressful. all my other bettas are in cycled tanks lol so i have no idea how to take care of one that is without a filter.
another questions should i add aquarium salt? i think hes jsut stressed and needs to be left alone. he doesnt have fin rot or ammonia burns at least not that i can see... yet...
This video is much better than the pics. You will get too see how he is behaving better http://youtu.be/KxuuXUtLanY
look how skinny he is :(. i put him in the bucket before the tank because i did not want any of his blue waste water coming with him
