Yesterday i had to bow to the almightly master of i want a new betta.
I was wandering in Petsmart and found this gorgeous white betta with beautifull red fins.
So sucker that i am i wanted him the instant i saw him.
Then my wife pointed out that one of his gills was open.
Not quite like he is flaring but it's definetely not anywhere near his body.
I thought well i'll make him flare with a mirror and it'll fix itself.
Guess what. he hates the mirror :(
So now i'm not sure if this is a defect or if it's fixable.
i put him in some epsomsalt to get him to calm down a little in the hope this helps.
i would take a picture but my battery charger is dead >.<
P.S. it's only on one side of his body.
