Her head looks a little oddly shaped to me...I bought her about a month or so ago from AB, I just assumed at first that she was still growing into her head and didn't think anything of it, but I bought another female at the same time, and her head doesn't look like this. Daphne also has a hard time eating food. Ive been noticing that when she goes for pellets, 95% of the time, she misses. Ive been having to cup her at feeding time to feed her separately so that I can be sure shes actually eating.
Anyone? I'm worried about her because her odd head shape seems to hinder her eating. She wouldn't even eat today, and just hung out in the back corner. I also think she may be the bottom of the totem pole, so to speak, in my sorority.
yeah that is a deformity. the guy breeder you bought her from obviously isn't a smart breeder or a good one if he didn't cull a deformed betta. Or maybe he has too many bettas to care for like a puppy farm doesn't care for all the puppies they have so they are brought up in bad conditions. I have many things to say about that breeder but I will stop there. I'd tell the breeder about the problem and also the IBC
Well that was a shock....I just found her dead in the back of the tank...she was perfectly fine last night. Those pics were taken the day before yesterday, you can see that she didnt have any sign of being bullied. So I can only guess that her deformities went farther than just her head shape. She was acting funny yesterday, just hanging out alone in the corner, but swimming around, not just sitting there. I'm really in shock....
