My Walmart rescue

I loth Walmart and avoid it when I can, tonight I wasn't able to, so of course I had to check on the fish. The ones in the tanks were in cloudy nasty water. The bettas of course weren't in better condition. This female caught my eye. Cloudy nasty water, there is some sticky stuff on the lid by the hole so more than likely it is in the water. Get home and the ammonia test is a shade of green not listed on the card!!! I do have a 10 gal tank that I have 1 female already in, so I guess I'm starting a sorority!!!

Ugh, that's horrible. I hate how Walmart and petsmart have their Bettas on shelves that are under others. The fish don't get light and, since its harder to check on them that way, they don't receive decent care.

I hope the shock of going into clean water doesn't kill her. Are you gradually going to shift he over?

Yup I was up most of the night gradually taking out the crap water and slowly adding in the new clean water. Here is the cup of water and test. So awful!

All things considered she really doesn't look too bad. Her fins look in decent shape and I'm sure she'll start to color up soon.

Thank you! You can see that she has green eyes! I am thinking maybe a crowntail as well. She has nodules from on the caudal fin like as if parts of the fins fell off. So hopefully in a few days I might see if I'm right.
