Bloo, sounds great! I recommend marbles as your "gravel" - makes cleaning a breeze. Buy a Minibow tank for $30 at Petco, comes with filter and is easy to set up, in my opinion. Be careful with the heater... don't want to go too cheap. Heaters are known to boil fish alive if they are poorly made. But kudos to you for rescuing! I can't wait to see your new boy/girl!
Also guys, posted a new article in my blog about Alastor's first day, with photos. smile
I dont have a petco here emo but the pet store is alright. there were marbles there, but not enough to cover the bottom of the tank, but they might have more of them when i head over there again! Im so excited! i do have to prove im responsible enough to take care of a betta, but i can still be excited!
GUY GUYS GUYS! Iridescent Ate 8DDD >w< I'm so happy. He was on the other side of the tank so i took some pictures of him and dicided to toss a pellet in for the hell of it i put it on the side of the tank then knocked it in so he wouldnt see my hand and freak out. and he stared at it for a moment before moving over to it slowly and nomed it ! x33 I gave him some more then once he was done he when back to hiding in his plant xD
I hope the Verdent eats soon :< I'm hoping he will start eating once the fin rot starts going down
There you go being adorable again, Leefs. XD! I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day. smile Totally beats mine... with my dead car battery and blowing the main fuse in the poor thing because the battery terminals were marked incorrectly so I put the wrong clamps on them when I tried to jump it... -facepalms- And my laptop has crashed on me like... I'm not even joking... 20 times since I updated my stupid Flash. ><; I'm seriously gonna lose it here if things don't look up. Coz Saturday will mark a straight -week- of crap luck.
I don't think he has body rot anymore. I saw a dark red near his tail that looked like it wasn't part of the tail and though it was the beginning of bodyrot/ an open wound but this morning part of his tail is missing so it might have just been that or i miss took the short part of the fin for his body.
I don't know if the missing fin is good or not. the part that's goon was covered in rot and there is some finage left by his body. but it's weird because its part of the bottom and then a circle that goes towards the top ouo
give me a sec and I will see if i can get a good pic of the new tail development.
Shadica, I would definitely post those pictures on bettafish.com, since I'm no expert on fish illnesses, but that doesn't look good at all...
And Meegs, hahaha, thanks! I'll add to the gushiness. If you wanted to know... this is my Valentine's Day picture. Isn't he a beaute? wink And yes, I did get kissed (if I haven't already mentioned that a million times), and yes, I am absolutely, utterly, devastatingly smitten.
I FEEL CHARMING, OH SO CHARMING, IT'S ALARMING HOW CHARMING I FEEEEEL!!!
I'm so sorry. With those recent pictures in mind, I can tell that he is suffering, and it doesn't look good. You might want to consider euthanasia. ): It can be an emotionally traumatic experience for you though - I've had to do it three times and it never gets easy. Maybe get a few more opinions and think on it.
