I brought Chance in and set up his tank. I was still fairly inexperienced with treating fish, but had some past success that I wanted to try on him. I set his water up with 1 tsp Aquarium salt per gallon. I knew this would help his gill function and would be a preventative for parasites. I set him up with several plants and a little tunnel to hide in. I wanted to help him feel as secure as possible. As I netting him to the tank, he didn't even move or fight me. That was a real clue to know how weak he was. He settled into his new tank but was very quiet. Swimming to the top was challenging so I set him up with a betta leaf as well. Thank goodness for Amazon and quick delivery! I got an order in on some Indian Almond Leaves too. The tannis they release would be a great help to him. Gradually he started to respond some to me. He would try to hold his little head up but didn't have enough strength to be level in the water. I knew it was touch and go but his eyes showed hope.
Every fish deserves a Chance
