I have been stalking your wonderful forum for a few days now and decided that it seemed like a great community to join!
I am new to Betta's, I have always been intrigued by them but never had much luck with fish in the past so it scared me off.
I somewhat recently finished a certificate in animal care and really enjoyed the fish care modules. In line with my graduation I started working in a pet store. They sell fish and hermit crabs and take really great care of them :) The majority of the store is pet food, toys etc.
The company offers ongoing training through their own online training courses so between more research and being surrounded by fish everyday I decided to adopt a betta!
The first little guy was already not 100% but I fell for him and took him home. I think the shock killed him (he died the following day) He was a really small crown tail we named Ryu (RIP)
I was quickly addicted these little guys so took home an active, healthy looking VT :)
His name is Murphy (sea warrior) and he has an excellent appetite and is always swimming around and is very interactive and playful!
I am so in love!
He did panic in the new tank (9 lt filtered) so I moved him in to large plastic tub and he perked right back up. So he is living in the tub while I slowly raise the water level and he settles in to a routine.
I was just hoping some one could please let me know if his fins are okay?
They seem to be almost stuck together at the ends?
I'm hoping all the TLC will have him really shining soon.
Thanks guys! Sorry for the huge introduction!! :)
