I picked up a King Betta from PETCO today. I've been wanting one of these beasts for a while, so figured may as well get one now.
Looks wise, he's pretty standard as far as the Kings at PETCO go-- nothing too special. However, he caught my attention because he was flaring and going nuts at the other fish to the point where water was practically coming out of the feeding hole in his cup.
I decided to name him Bronson
, after esteemed 20th century philosopher and scholar Charles Bronson.
I noticed a small tear in his anal fin upon closer inspection at the store, but his intensity made him too cool to pass up. I have some AQ salt on-hand and can pick up any additional meds tomorrow, but as it is just a small tear can I leave him be in warm, clean water to see if it heals itself? I understand the importance of using meds when necessary, but I also believe in the healing power of warm water.
Any advice would be appreciated.
**NOTE: This glass cube is not his permanent home. I just used it for a makeshift photoshoot (which turned out pretty bad)**
