So today i was in walmart and wanted to check the bettas to see if there were any i could save. For the most part, MOST of them were not in horrible shape - minus about 3. Anyways I decided on this smaller orangish colored one with some fin rot going on.
I know how to treat fin rot. However, the two fins that hang down under the one's he uses to swim with are curled. And the top fin hangs over like the whale's did in the movie free willie. What causes this? Is it something to be concerned about? I think he is a veiltail but i'm not sure.
I just got him tonight. I do not know what the water parameters for walmart were. I did test his ammonia and it was .50 in his cup.
Currently he is in a 1 gallon, unheated tank. its so damn hot in here the water is about 81 without a heater on.
