So.. I visited my local Wal-Mart today to pick up some supplies and I was horrified with what I found in the pet section!!!!! The betta self was horrendous! I find a male betta and a female betta in the same bowl with about a inch of water in it..The females fins werent that bad..but she had taken some bullying!!!!! Oh no..Thats not all! I then find two male crowntails in the same bowl....Their fins torn to shreads!!!!! They didnt look alive! I was so angry! So I took it upon myself to seperate them into tub-aware bowls that I was buying already....I wanted to take those crowntails home so badly...But they were too far gone...Their fins werent even present on their bodies..But I did take home the male betta that was in with the female... and I have contacted the General Manger about the issue..and I have a good feeling that someone will be getting fired soon..And hopefully the care of the bettas will improve soon!
The new guy..I have housed him in a two gallon vace with a live plant with the temp set at 78degrees...and I have treated his water with aqua salt and ICH away..But his fins arent in too bad of shape at all..and I probably will only continue the treatment for the next day or so.
He is eating normally and is swimming around flarring at Cornelias with no problem! haha!
I really dont know what I want to name him yet though.. He is a VT. And he has amazing coloring! A turquios, velvet colored body with a black head..and his fins have a bright turquios color as well with a little mint green..he also has black spots on his fins... Any ideas?
