such beautiful guys too! That 2nd one is just gorgeous, and I gasped at the 3rd. What could have happened to his tail? But the 1st is sooooo emaciated O.O
Every time I go into the petco here, there is normally at least 1 dead, a handful with fin or body rott, and lately they have had more and more with swim blatter disease. I keep thinking they are dead as they float on their sides on the top, then when I move the cups, woosh and they swim away then calm down and float back up on their side -.-
I don't think the little delta is going to make it, He's been laying half on his side this whole time (thats how I found him in the store, flat out as gasping) he swam briefly at one point, but now he's flat out on his side again, barely breathing and he looks stiff... Poor little man, I never even got a chance to name him
The little DT, is swimming around a little more, I've named him Echo
Poor little fish... :( It's heartbreaking.... and unfortunately is happening all over the world. They don't care at all about bettas.... :((
You're doing a wonderful job. I also rescued a fish a few weeks ago and now he's back in shape. Keep us updated please.
It saddens me to see all this. I hope that poor little nameless boy will help up and get past the worst. Luckily i haven't come across anything as bad as whats been mentioned on this forum. Just sounds absolutely depressing. My trips have been limited to a pet store that has 1 gal cubes for each bettas, all looking healthy as well as an aquarium shop who takes care of all their fishies.
Moonshadow, I am so sorry about the deltatail. Hopefully he's turned around and doing better this morning. You do such a wonderful job, I know it's got to hurt when you loose one of your rescues before you get the chance to help him. The DT is looking a lot better. You do such a wonderful job with all the guys, thank you so much for what you do!
I am so sickened by this. You have picture evidence and VIDEO evidence. Makes copies and contact the manager and head office ... Be diplomatic about it though, you don't want to come off as angry, irrational and have them turn a blind eye.
Wait a day or two and then call them. Supply your evidence and state your case and offer a solution to the care.. Like dividing their regular tanks and adding the bettas to those, at least on a baracks system where the water is exchanged out.
