I know that I need a an actual tank for each of my fish, a heater, and a probably a few other testing kits. My parents pretty much got the fish so they could shut me up on my birthday. They're not willing to pay or expend any effort on their part to help my fish. And I don't feed them blood worms as often as I feed the pellets, which are called 'New Life Spectrum Betta Formula' I kind of figured the blood worms were kind of like a treat, well I mean compared to the pellets. And for now the heater isn't a problem, so I'm not too worried about that because as I stated in my first post, it gets to 90 degrees in my house, and I'm not exaggerating. And I'm afraid to start feeding him again .. especially if he might be constipated.. that would just make it worse right?
And I understand completely that I need a bigger 'tank' I've been trying to make that happen, but right now I'm just trying to keep my fish alive until then. And you're right the pet store employees don't tell you anything about the fish, I thought that was really odd, so I asked, luckily the fish person was obsessed with bettas..
