Holy Cow! A sense of humor too! You know...with successes and awards being bestowed upon you like this....it probably means many more job offers. Who knows...you could moderate your OWN bettafish.com one day?

I agree with everyone else, obviousley he going uncared for and needs a proper home. If he is being neglected to that point then I cant see any reason as to why she wont let you take him.

Oh, let's not get ahead of ourselves ;) Sure, maybe somebody the President will create a Secretary of Bettas position in his cabinet, and of course I would be the natural choice... who knows? For now, I'm focused on Poofish. LOL

I forgot to say in my last post - I got an email back from my friend. She said she was glad I took him, because she was meaning to "get rid of him" (What does THAT mean, anyway?? I hope she meant "give him away") and forgot about it before she went on vacation. Guess he's mine!

He's doing well... I think his color looks nice, except he still has what I'm calling "PooFin". His small dangly fins up front have some brownish stuff of them (I swear, it can't be natural) and one of them is bent up. I don't know if that's a big deal - he seems to be okay otherwise.

I tried to take a picture of the PooFin phenomenon. It's darn hard to take pictures of this fish! How do you people do this?? By the time I click the button, he's swimming away, so I just end up with dozen pictures of his back side. I'm posting one of those too - cuz they're kinda funny. :)

He may be getting old and losing color. I would still give him time (up to weeks) to fully begin to panick, although I'm sure he's doing wonderfully happy :)

I heard some curling of the fin can be caused do to long exposure to high ammonia (*coughthebowlcough*). I have no way to prove it, but I've just been told / read.

Also, there HAVE been brown bettas, more of a "chocolate" type... he could have a gene from a chocolate betta? Unlikely, but hey.

"Getting rid " of him probably means flushing him.
