So, first off Yoghurt is the new name of my boyfriend's (Ryan) sister's fish. She said he was sick... So I took a look and "interogated" her
food: a pinch
Cleaning: ..... Cleaning: ..... CLEANING: Okay so she admited the 0.5 gallon was left for almost 4 weeks. Poor boy split his caudal fin, and he was going white and was bloated. Diagnosis: Ammonia burning, possible poisoning, and SBD. Took him home to heal him.
Ryan picks up the tank... "WHERE DOES THE FISH SWIM?!!" He barely knows anything about fish, but he did notice this little tank was TOO little! So in a grumbling rant he ends up going to Walmart and we were there for a half hour just looking at tanks: something space friendly, but fish friendly and cat proof!!
And then there was 1.5 gallons
not even a half hour and he was more colorful, active and frantically checking everything out. SPACE!!!
AND LILY! Cute little cellophone female who I do believe is a veiltail. Fin rot... And I noticed a faint irridescent coloration on her fins and body (greeny blue) so it will be interesting to see what she will be!! Small, and smushed between two other betta cups (male double tails...both rotted too!) she showed the most response to me, and plus... Unique little lady... Why not take a chance?
I'll post new pics of her :) she was of today, and now in..... two gallons of water which made it hard for me to get a picture of her when she was zipping around!
