I had a betta for almost a year before I went looking for information. I kept him in a small unheated bowl and did infrequent water changes. When I realized he had fin rot I tried LPS remedies which didn't work. Thats when I turned to google and found this website. Thanks to the information on this forum my first betta is healed, healthy and looking beautiful. Now I have three bettas kept in heated, cycled 3 and 5 gallon tanks. I want to thank everyone who takes the time to give people good information to improve the health and happiness of bettas.
