So, I've got a new betta from my roommate, who was given the betta from her big. I personally do not know WHY she kept the poor little crowntail, especially since she hates animals.
Anyways, I just recieved it, and he was living in FILTHY water. It was pink tinted from his food. I put him in one for my extra tanks, with nice clean water, and a little of the bacteria from the previous water. I was going to change it this weekend when I was going to go down to my parents. However, I've noticed that he has some white fluffy stuff on the edges of his fins. I'll try to get some pictures later.
