So the water has slowly risen to 76 degrees. Griff is still laying on the bottom, though he did move positions on the bottom from the time I went to take a nap to an hour later. This time he's laying on the bottom of the little roman pillars I have as decoration. The base of those pillars is on top of the warmer. I wonder if he's trying to get warm?
Also, I looked around for his original bowl and I found out that he is a halfmoon betta. When I checked to see what he is supposed to look like, I realized his fins just don't look good. So I dropped some Betta Revive in the water. I will do this for at least 3 days. I hope he sticks around that long...
I know with Betta Revive (and since he's not doing so well anyway) I should be doing 100% water changes daily, correct? I'm off to see how to fully change the water the RIGHT way.
Oh and just an update, I did the math. We put 2 1/2 quarts in the bowl last night for him and it is almost full. There's probably 1/2 quart room left to the lip of the bowl. So he doesn't even have 1 gallon to swim around in, more like 3/4 gallon. A larger tank is on the to do list...I have to get the budget to do so, or adjust some things on this month's budget.
Thanks again for y'alls help.
