Every betta at my lfs(in the plural, I've gone an hour out of town as well) is very sick and sitting in a half an inch of water. LITERALLY. :( It's cruel and depressing, and to make matters worse I haven't had a lot of luck curing illness fast enough in the past.
I'm too afraid to get a sick little buddy, at least that sick.
Maybe a slight case of finrot would be curable by the time I move back to my apartment, but not aa severe as the ones here.
If someone knows of a place close by I would love to hear about it!
