So I was at Petco today, and I fell in love with a beautiful little double tail. I hesitated to buy him though, because he was laying at the bottom of his little container on his side, barely moving. I also noticed that his body wasn't straight like a betta's usually is. It's sort of crooked and s-shaped (if you're looking from the top down), like a fish equivalent of scoliosis.
Well, I felt a little sorry for him, and he was
very prettily colored so I brought him home and set him up in a nice-sized tank with a heater.
He's still just laying on the bottom. I figure I should just give him some time to adjust, but can anyone tell me what the whole crookedness thing is about? Is it a serious health issue?
