Hi everyone, allow me to first introduce myself; Runi, at your service!
Recently I rescued my two beautiful Betta fish from my evil little cousins. They were trying to starve and neglect them so they would die! Because I tutor them once a week I noticed that a week or two after they'd gotten these fish as presents, they stopped caring for them at all. The water was dirty and the fish were pretty lethargic. When I asked my cousins said that they didn't feed them for a while and wanted them "to die" from neglect and starvation!
After a few weeks of this fish turned black and barely moved to save energy. It was animal cruelty I couldn't watch, so I took them home and am currently caring for them :3 This was Tuesday. Since then I've made sure to change their water and feed them regularly, and just in 5 days their color has come back significantly, they are so much more energized, and I can see their different personalities a lot better.
Their fins have also naturally fanned out and I'm pretty sure they 'know' me, if not then they definitely know their food container. Haha. Since I've found this website I now know what upgrades and things to save for for my new gorgeous fish thanks bettafish.com
Next on my list to purchase a heater and a tank with seperators! Just got a thermometer and water conditioner!
Here they are!
