I actually adopted Guppy from a friend and he did live in soft water, and the adjustment was not easy at all as I was not expecting that problem at all. He even went blind for two weeks, but in the end he adjusted okay.
I have learned a lot from that experience so I am confident I can do it.
At first though I think I will be buying bottled betta water. Thank you for telling me about it, I would not have known to look for that.
As to these two, I am waiting for better picture and I am pretty sure that female is gone, so I will be getting a different girl. I don't think the boy's fins look weird, i like the way he looks, the girl I agree, she is a little funny, but I think that is an unfortunate pose, she looks much better in the video
If you could look at the video
and tell me what you think I would appreciate it. I would like several opinions as I am very new to this and not sure what I am looking for in a "pure breed" betta.
