I found some pictures from about a year and a half ago, when I knew next to nothing about betta care. I'd just taken Roscoe home. I feel so bad! He looks really nice in these pictures, though, and I was doing 100% water changes 3x/week, but that's still horrid. My poor boy!!
Thankfully now the little bugger's in a nice 7 gallon, after I had some sense knocked into me (:
Let's do a comparison:
My poor guy ended up being a tail-biter. I feel so horrible for making him live like this D:
The most recent picture I have of the tank:
I made him live like this for four months, and I'm surprised he lived this long. Even back then I was working at PetSmart and actually, truly believed that's how a betta was supposed to live. I feel like such an awful person, because I was what everyone hates. I was a dumb pet store associate who knew nothing about what they were selling.
I was such a bad betta mommy ):
