Have you thought about IAL or rooibos tea to help the rays regrow?
I am desperate to try rooibos, but I haven't found any successfully. Hopefully soon.

Yup! I hope to get some on the weekend.. I think CTs have much more sensitive fins since they are so thin instead of solid..

IAL will soften water.. Sadly I don't think curling is usually undoable.
People used to sell CTs with fins curled like a pigs tail, it was cute IMO, but some people say certain ones uncurl in soft water anyways. o.o
Other than IAL, I wouldn't try playing with hardness.. Don't trust those aquarium products, they are a lot of work :p

you have very cute bettas :) I also never had fish in my life. I never even was in fish department. I got betta instead of the dog about 4.5 years ago and got really addicted like probably a lot of people lol
I have a question, since you don't have filter how much and how often do you change water in your 10 gall?

they are addicting :) haha i have a 5.5 gallon at the moment but i change like 90% once a week and the ammonia doesnt get too high. (that was with just antione, if i still had 2 in there id probly change it twice as much) im not sure about 10 gallons but a good way to tell is to get an ammonia test kit and change it when it gets high (.25 or .5)

Day 26

well... Jacques/Wilhelm (still didnt decide on a name) died today... i came home and he was upside down at the bottom of the tank... :( at least it wasnt Antione i guess... i know that sounds bad but i didnt even have time to get attached to Jacques... i have not the slightest clue what was wrong with him... he was fine one day, the next his fins were clamped and the next he was gone :( ... changed their water early for Antione, rearranged and added some more marbles for the bottom... guess hes just a tough little guy because ive now killed (or gotten while sick) 2 out of 3 bettas... :( not a good day in my fish tank

The red one!? He looked fine D:
Gah, that's really scary. I doubt it was anything you did though.
I bought a little boy today that's pretty sick too, hope he pulls through.
