UGH! This was so scary.

Okay, so I was doing my weekly water changes like normal today. Cleaned out Heathers, Brents, Suellens, Skydens, Aubins and Garlands with no errors, got them in clean water like usual.

But then Icens turn came around.

I cleaned his bowl, scrubbed the rocks and ornaments, washed the fake plants, and was ready to put him back in.

So I scooped him out of his cup into the water.. The only problem is I FORGOT TO ADD THE TABLETS TO THE TAP WATER FIRST!

I had to think fast, I ran to this jug of filtered water, on the way there doing a half split on the floor slipping in the water, ran back to his bowl, scooped him out with my HAND and put him in the jug of good water.

Phew.. He's fine now. Got him in a quiet, warm room for now to relax. I'm so glad he's okay :o.

Has something like this ever happened to you?

AMG yes. This has happened to me several times (like 3) before with my first betta. -__-; scared the poooo out of me haha. Glad he's ok!
It's ok to scoop him out with your hands, as long as you don't hold them for long- it can damage their scales and slime coat. ;)
