Hello all! My beta, Ula, is not looking good D:
His story with me:
I got him a month or so ago and have been trying my BEST to make him healthy and happy. So far: I am a failure ... He got bloated and miss colored fins. I gave him a salt bath and he seemed better! Then I had to leave for a week to my grandma under my Dad's care. I don't know what all he did. The 2nd time I took him for a salt bath to make sure he was recovered, I dropped his tank with him in it. He is still recovering when I had to go to another state to hep my sister. My Mom watched him that time.
When I got back, his fins are RIPPED!!! There is nothing in his tank that is sharp.Its looks like something is eating it, but it doesn't have any spots or anything different other then ripped fin...
