I am so sorry Sena! Thats horrible! The pet store should learn to keep their fish in MUCH better condition!
My local pet store is the same but maybe even worse! Normally they have about 20-30 Betas in a small 5 gallon tank all squished together! It's horrific! Dead Betas everywhere and disease will probably kill them all. Thats why i decided to rescue a few of them. :) I have a 60 gal tank so that should be fine for a few of them to live and not have to suffer anymore!
There's also not much cover or plants in that small 5 gallon tank.
Arn't Betas mostly solitary fish anyways?
Stupid idiot store keeper also ripped me off in the past with WAAAAAAYYY over priced supplies and not to mention, fish(Bettas are being sold for $15-20. yes maybe they are worth that much but certainly NOT in that condition!
People are so cruel sometimes!

Treat her for an extreme case of fin rot. Hit that nasty olf fin rot where it counts! You will win! Little Sarah will pull through! All you have to do is give her lots of meds and TLC! Visualize her happy and swimming to her little heart's content!

Hummingbird, I know, I helped ya in your thread about your male and female :) and yes, males are solitary and females "can" be together with the tank stuffed so full with plants you cannot see your female bettas.

BettaMommy, I definitely will She is actually swimming around some, in the 1.5 gallons of water. I don't think she knows what to do with more than a cup of water

Yep, 15 teaspoons if you're using one packet. :)

It's actually took me a lot longer to explain it than to do it. I like to bake, but I only live with one other person, so I'm used to figuring out weird adjustments for recipes, lol.

They are amazing healers. She must have a lot of heart to have made it this far in such terrible condition, so I'm sure she will make it!

I do not blame you! That is just another reason I created Spartan Betta Rescue Program, for mainly Canada. I accept sick and dying, old and young bettas from stores, owners, and people who found them.
