Thank you :)

It seems very slowly that he's getting a bit more active or at least more comfortable with surroundings. But then again that could just be hopping to much.

So now he has his own 1 gallon tank, i know it isnt the BEST for him. But it is all i can do right now.

I don't think he was there to long. The last time I was at that petco was two weeks ago and he wasn't there then. So the longest he could have been there is 2 weeks. Thankfully it wasn't any longer then that

Ya that ammonia can get much higher. That looks off the charts!

It's definitely closer to 8ppm, that's amazing a pet store could let them get that bad in under two weeks. At least he seems active, that's got to mean something!

Agreed, but I think the larger problem is the fact that they live in such small cups. so the ammonia builds up like that, im betting it gets to .25+ in less then a day. It would be more practical for stores to give them each around 1 gallon. Though I doubt they ever would.


Im glad hes active too. I cant wait to see what he turn out to be like one he gets settled in and feels more comfortable. I cant say this for certain yet but I think they eye that looks white has no site out of it but the cloudy eye has a bit of sight I think so that's good.

The guy I bought from petco today was at .25 ppm, though I have no idea how long he'd been there. They seem to do a better job with bettas than the petsmart I used to work for.

That's good! I can't wait to see what he looks like in a few days.

My camera charged faster then I thought it would so here are some new better pictures of him. Oh and I think I might name him Ares but that's a big maybe.

This is his better eye. What looks like glare is the cloudiness in his eye:

Nice. He looks like he has some age. Also does look a little blind.

Ohhh he's so pretty! His eyes might clear up. Daredevil was almost entirely blind when I brought him home, but warm, clean water cleared his eyes up so well he almost has full sight back! A lot of time disease can cause the cloudiness.

He's really pretty! Is the gold on his fins his coloring or the start of velvet? I'm super new at this, but haven't seen anything like that.
