I went by walmart today to price 10 gals and of course I looked at the bettas. I went to pick up one in the back to look at it and the bottom of the cup was GREEN!!! Completely green! I told my roommate I'm taking her home.. then I saw another.. then 2 more. I came home with 4 fish (two male two female) all in disgusting conditions. One of which I know for a fact I saw at this same walmart a month ago!
I'll be keeping them until they are fat and healthy then putting them up for adoption at the cost of shipping... so if anyone wants one let me know. I'm going to have to buy shipping bags and what not which will be included in the price for shipping so it might be more than $15... but if I can fit more than one to a box I won't double the shipping. I'll be keeping them until I know they are healthy and healed.
Here are some pictures...
This is the first girl I saw. I've named her Zippity Do Dah.. Zippity for short because she is tiny (like 1 inch) and zooms around the tub I have her in.
In the Cup
The bottom of the cup...
In her temporary home...(those are stress stripes.. I'm really not sure what her color is)
Girl #2.. no name as of yet. She looks like she has a few dragon scales but I'm not calling her a dragon.
Bottom of her cup..
In her temporary home.. I'll post better pics in a new thread later on.
Boy #1. I saw this guy at least 3 weeks ago if not more.. I know this because something bad was written on his cup (since there are young kids on this forum I won't write what it said).
Bottom of cup..
In tank.. Not sure if those spots are a sickness or just part of his color
Boy #2.. He not only was in BROWN water but has horrible fin rot.
I'm going to try just to treat like I always do with aquarium salt and clean water.. but I think boy #2 is going to need something more. I couldn't leave them.. it made me sick just to think about them living in that filth.
