proud of my mom!

we went to petco and there was a betta who had so little water that he couldn't even be straight... so my mom called over the fish girl and told her to give the betta more water, the employee did give the betta more water but not after she told us that bettas live in rice puddles and that they can live in shallow water... I would have argued with the girl but I could tell she wouldn't care what I said... we watched the betta for a minute and it appeared he had a minor case of SB so I asked my mom if we could get him, she said no but at least we got the poor boy some more water...

the petco takes great care of their bettas, that was the only one who didn't have much water... they also do lots of water changes on their bettas so the cups were clean!!

Good for your mom! My mom supports my fish hobby and all but she literally would not let me talk about betta fish for a whole week... I was kind of mad, kind of amused.

Just speculating maybe since he has SBD someone thought lowering the water would help him. Maybe you guys could go back and put a pinch of epsom salt in his cup. Since his water is changed often he will probably be in it just long enough to cure him.
