For a floral design project for school, 75 students were required to each being a betta to school to put in a very small vase an put a plant at the top of the vase. I knew it wasn't sufficient enough to house and keep a betta healthy in, so I moved mine to a five gallon, and just upgraded him to a 10 gallon. However, two of my friends haven't done water changes in their vase for two weeks, and one friend hasn't been feeding her betta. They told me they were just going to let the bettas die. Immediately I offered to pick up both of the bettas. Both of the bettas are in such discusting water, its so hard to believe how they live in these conditions.
One is in alright shape, and probably just needs clean water. That one ate two pellets this morning.
The second one however, has clamped fins, I think a bent back, and did not eat this morning.
Today I'm going to ensure they get into clean water, but I need to know how big their hospital tanks should be. I have two cups (the ones that you buy the bettas in), and two small vases. Which would be better to use?
Also, what treatment do they need? I will be able to post pictures of the two bettas later today.
An because I do not particularly want to divide my 10 gallon, one or both of the bettas will be up for free adoption when they are healthy enough to ship. (Shipping cost would be the only thing needed)
One is a orange butterfly veil tail male
And the other I think is a blue super delta (or half moon) elephant ear male
