So I went to my local pet store today. I went over to the small rack of bettas and I spotted some with fin rot, pulled them off the display and gave them to the manager. I don't think they will make it though it was the kind of fin rot I recently lost a betta to where their fins turn to goo.
I looked through the rest and kept coming back to a veil tail. His gill covers are a bright pink. (Is this ok?
) He was not active and sitting on the bottom of his cup but his fins were in pretty good shape. The stress of buying him really freaked the poor guy out. Any advise on what bright pink gill covers could mean would be very much appreciated!
I got him home cleaned out a 1 1/2 gallon container stuck a heater in, put 1 tsp. of aquarium salt in the container. Let everything come to temp then floated his bag for a couple hours. I just released him into his container. I am going to take pictures tomorrow when he adjusts a little to his new situation. :)
The little guy was free as a thank you. I also have my master test kit ordered finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I should have it on Tuesday as long as the supplier has it in stock!
