Yay! Got my new betta! He's a red and blue crowntail! He has a touch of finrot but that should go if I keep him in clean, warm water, shouldn't it?

Clean water is indeed the best medicine for that. (: Hope he gets better quickly!

I'm thinking on calling him Suzuki (after the car). I'll see if I can get decent pics of him.

The LPS I bought him at had a notice that claimed you could keep a male and female together and that they needed water at room temperature (20 Celsius, 68 Fahrenheit). Most of the bettas had AT LEAST mild fin rot. They were all kept in TINY cube-like containers. :(

sometimes they males and females dont kill each other right away, but 99% of the time one ends up dead. Someone on this forum said they had a male and female together for almost a year And we told them to separate them ASAP. a few days later they killed each other. :(

It's sad that they're promoting it.

Stupid pet stores. It seems like conditions would be better by now. This isn't the Middle Ages, come on! The proper information is out there and easy to find with a simple Google search.

Suzuki seems SO much happier than when he was in his tiny cube. He has spread out his fins, he's exploring and comes over to me when I'm near!

It sounds like he's adjusting well to his new home.
