Okay, so, I was to not get any bettas for at least a few more weeks ... but when I saw this poor guy, I knew he needed a forever home.
Maelstrom has some sort of tumour on his side, possibly lymphocystosis, but I'm just not too sure. So if anyone can help, that would be awesome.
I am keeping his water super clean and feeding him a high protein diet, other than that there really isn't anything else one can do at this point except wait and see. These tumours are pretty rare, apparently, and they can spread via water so I'm keeping his equipment seperate and just hoping for the best.
He's otherwise healthy and eating well.
Here's Maelstrom :)
Le tumour ... :/
