I dont know if my bettas are digging the Prime. Ever since i started using it, they seem either stressed out or lazy.
*Woodhouse, stopped eating his pellets and blood worms, will only eat flakes now.
*Krieger bit off almost ALL of his fins last night, and he's never been a bitter.
*My baby betta Riley is clamping her fins
*Seamus is going crazy, swimming frantically, like hes trying to attack something.
Im starting to get down on myself, starting to feel that i can't care for them properly. I need advice.
Im already re-homing some due to being laid off and having to move. But the few I can hold onto, I want to make sure im doing everything right.
I sorry if ive asked these questions before and Ive been given answers. But now this thread isn't just focused on one fish with one problem. This thread is about every bit of advice and tips to care for them.
My setup is NOT what i or you would call perfect or adequate. But it's what I can afford right now. My birthday can not come soon enough.
This is the info for all my tanks. Please any advice, concerns or anything else is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reading and thank you in advance.
