So I am a total geek-type-animal-lover and I found this lil Betta fish at one of the houses my mom rents out yesterday (the family had moved out and left him there!!!) so OF COURSE i had to bring him home to my boyfriends apartment :D
He does not look all that great, the water is dirty, and the bowl is kinda tiny...I don't know the first thing about caring for fish as I have never had one (kinda a four-legged animal owner :P), but I don't want him/her to die :(
My original plan was to go and look for a new larger container for the little guy, but after that---I'm stuck :P I have no idea how to ready the water for him or anything! I know I can't just dump him into new tap water...but how do I get the water to a point where I can put the fish in there???
Unfortunately I am on a bit of a tiny income so i can't afford to get a HUGE tank or plants and lots of decoration or anything, but I'd like to just make sure the fish is happy 'til I can add more to it's environment. I do have food for him...so that's a positive step :) but other than the tiny tank and a lil bit of food I got nothin =/
Also would like to know how you can tell if it's a male/female???
And I cannot think of a decent name >.<
