Update timmme! Sorry for not posting, I've been a bit busy!
Sirius is doing amazing! His fin rot is still pretty bad, I was looking back at his photo from when I first got him and currently, some parts of his fins he had when I got him are gone. Maybe the water just needs to be kept cleaner, but it's so hard when he poops he would try to eat it and spit it out, turning it into tiny pieces everywhere, grrr! I think he's out of the habit now, hasn't done it in a few days!
His personality is really showing! He gets so excited when it's meal time. I had to change his meal times, because he got really bloated a few days ago, so I didn't feed him dinner and the next morning, the bloat had gone down and has stayed down since! And I did look at him from up top, and he's definitely gaining weight! Which makes me extremely happy and relieved, because I was seriously stressing over that. But he's gaining some weight, woo hoo!
I know I've said this a lot, but I just cannot get over his coloration! He's such a deep red in person(pictures don't do justice on my iphone!) and has lots of blues, golds, & greens! It's so sad, people tend to go for the prettier bettas, as did I before, but it made me realize, the one is awful conditions, fin rot, swim bladder, ect. are the most stunning bettas when they show their true colors. I mean, Sirius wasn't great looking when I got him, color wise & disease wise. I would've never guessed his colors would be this vibrant when I got him in a tank. I get my first paycheck soon. Not sure exactly how much, but I just really cannot wait to get the bettas a better setup! Especially Sirius, he deserves it! Oh Sirius, just wait buddy! You're going to have a heater, a nice filter, some awesome decor! You will love it!
Thanks for reading! Also, I just want to apologize again for the photos being sideways and not great quality! They're being taken on my phone instead of camera right now! They'll get better. But for now, enjoy sweet Sirius!
