So, I have done NOTHING to the water since Friday, 9/12. I added some silk plants and removed the nano heater. (Yes, I know the "proper parameters" PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME HOW WRONG I AM
...his water is consistently staying at about 72-75 degrees now, rather than 79-80 degrees...and you know, these problems for Ernesto began only after adding that heater...Every fish is different, and react to environmental things differently. I will re-introduce it when needed) I also removed the sunken ship, and some waste via a turkey baster. His caudal fin is regenerating...and it looks like his anal fin that broke off is also starting to heal. Yessss...
He LOVES the new plants...very very happy Betta!
Just a little update.
