I was at Wal-Mart yesterday(looking for fish food) and saw a very disturbing sight. You know those itty-bitty containers they put the bettas in? There were two males in one container. Boy someone really screwed up. I got so mad. It was clear to see the winner one male looked completely fine and the other was missing most of his fines which were sitting at the bottom of the tank. He was kind of floating at the top and I thought he was dead so I gently tapped the side and he moved a little so I took them home. I only had $15 so I decided to buy them and a gallon fish bowl(I have other tanks at home) and decided to buy another betta male(speckled white and dark gray/blue body, royal blue fins) who was to handsome to miss I also bought some dried shrimp and the fish food I needed for my other fish. As soon as I got home I seperated the two males into the two containers(I needed to wait 24hrs for the gallon bowl I bought and for another 1 gal bowl I already had not in use) I put the royal blue male in my 10gal with 4 goldfish(I have successfuly gotten bettas and goldfish to get along fine with space). I feed the bettas and actualy they are ready to go into the bowls in a couple of minutes, but what chance does the male have? He lost most of his fins but I couldn't see any marks on his body. And will his fins ever grow back? I don't personaly care but if they are suposed to come back and they don't I would like to know.
