Two days ago, my royal blue veil tail betta swallowed a cory catfish pellet which "exploded" his tummy, this is a journal of his recovery. Aqua's stomach looked very big and upon more investigation i realized he swallowed a pellet much too big for him. He is under intensive care with daily water changes, malefix treatments, and AQ salt to help his healing process. He still eats, swims normally but you can definitely see where the pellet exploded his stomach. He still goes to the bathroom regularly. I am very hopeful that he will make a speedy recovery but it means keeping an eye on him whenever I am home. I work 8 hours daily at a hair salon located inside of wall-mart its very convenient for me because Petsmart and Petco are very far from me and it makes it very hard for me to buy first aid treatments. Fortunately, Wal-Mart had some first aid options I could use in the mean time. Aqua is doing very good and I am asking for many prayers in his recovery process, he was my very first betta and I really do think fish lives matter just as much as humans.
Please follow Aqua's journey to recovery.
