So, some of you may remember my thread
a while back about a male Betta at the pet store here. I was so torn, not having the money at the time to take him, plus I was thinking I really didn't need another Betta. But this guy, just... captured my heart. I have been thinking about him everyday this week. I talked to my fiance about it, and he said I have seen a million Bettas at that store and I never asked for one. He said I have turned away from the sickest cases, held such restraint in taking one home. But the fact that this guy was bothering me so much, I needed to go back and get him.
So I went out tonight to get my dog and cat food and a background for Nixons new tank and I told my friend "If he's there, I'll take him home". Sure enough, I walked over and there he was. Sitting at the bottom of his tank, on his side :( The tank was full of moldy food, feces and the water has a brown tint to it.
He's home now, I am hoping he pulls through. He has a twitch like Twitch did when he came home, Twitch has severe ammonia poisoning. I decided to check his water for ammonia and this is what I saw :(
No wonder :(
Anyways, he's in a clean 1.5g now with plants and a hiding space. He's having some issues with swimming, he doesn't really like his tank but hopefully a night of settling in will tell us how bad he is in the morning.
I'm not really sure what he is, looks like a yellow/white dragon VT. His fins are in horrible shape, and he's been clamped since I saw him at the store.
No pictures right now, but I did get this small clip of him :(
