Uh, HOW did I end up with another one of these? Well, I was at petco buying one of their shrimp ( I got a berried one!), and when I saw thia betta thought he was dead. So when I saw that he wasn't I thought it wont hurt to ask whether sick fish are free...
I was expecting the guy working there to say no, since that is usually the case. Petco usually wont let you take home sick fish. but he was like "you can have that one". I was like...O_o what have I done.
I'm not sure whether I like taking home sick fish, on one hand I'm giving him a little chance at life, on the other hand i always feel terrible when they die.
This one is in serious bad shape. a couple of times I had to look reaaaaalllllly hard to see is his gills were moving since he was so still... and... dead looking.
Even at the store the guy servin me said, "I think he's dead". The counter girl took a look and said "good luck"...
I drip acclimated this one after putting in two drops of prime. he's floating the the vase of my last rescue. This fellows looking very emaciated. I dropped in a couple of daphnia incase he wanted food when I'm not around, but he's yet to show the slightest interest in them.
Floating in giant vase. Water temp: 82F
I'll keep you guys updated on his condition, but it isnt looking good.
