    Why, yes, I DID get another betta...

    Well, ever since Rocky passed away I haven't had another betta (but I kept his tank cycled...you never know when that perfect cup baby will look at you and you HAVE to take them home) So, long story short....I couldn't resist him ,just flaring the HECK at me in his tiny death cup at Walmart :'(...

    Nelson has Fungus

    Awwww I hope Nelson feels better! If you don't have your heater for your 10 gallon, move your tank to a place where the temperature is both warm and consistently so. I wouldn't worry too much about not having a filter, just do water changes often. Best of luck! Tell Nelson we're all rooting for...

    I decided to give him a little variety in his tank, so I put in a floaty silk plant by the heater. I just looked over...and Dolce and Rocky are sleeping side by side on it. I think they're BAFFs now. (Best Aquatic Friends Forever) Rocky looks more like a royal blue boy now, but he still looks...

    Thanks everyone! And no wonder he's huge...he sure does love to pig out! And begs mercilessly! He likes to sleep o the suction cup that holds up the heater. Considering he was in a tiny cup, he probably enjoys the warmth.

    My mom has some fin rot medication at work that she used on her fish. She's going to bring some home, but until then, SUPER CLEAN water, high protein food, and some garlic. Don't forget major observation. He's incredibly active, swimming just for the pure joy of being able to move, I suspect. He...

    He has a red and blue bottom fin, which is unusual coloring, but handsome! His body is a deep emerald green, which ws what kind of caught my eye...that and the flaring. Because he's such a feisty boy, I've decided to name him Rocky (after Rocky Balboa). Here's some pics (sorry for the...

    Things happen...:)

    OK, in an earlier thread of mine, written just after Elvis passed away due to a power outage, I had decided not to get another betta. So, this morning while we were grocery shopping at Wal-Mart, I went to pick up some cat food and treats. (everyone knows where this is going ) So I passed by the...

    I don't deserve them...

    well, he's still hanging on...i have him in a shallow dish next to me since he can no longer swim up to the surface. he has no interest in food, and i'm at a loss as to what to do...this is no way for him to live his life, and idon't want to give up on him, but if he doesn't improve, i might...

    I don't deserve them...

    thanks everyone....he's still here, i just checked on him....and maybe it wasn't the food...because i can see now that his spine is extremely curved in an S shape, so that's probably why....his gills are barely moving, it shouldn't be long now...

    exactly.....I always thought that Tetra made good products, but now i don't think that the food i ws feeding them was a proper diet for a betta..........poor Mel is barely brething beside me now. i tell him that it's ok to swim to the rainbow bridge because i know he must be suffering..I hope he...

    No, I bought one from PETCO (Mr. Wiggles) and one from a WALMART (Mel). i've fed them both TetraMin Tropicl Granules-said on the label it was good for bettas and mom told me i had to use it all up before we could buy the pellets. it's a wicked big jar though. it says to only feed bettas a few...

    I don't deserve them...

    As many of you know, I got my first betta, Mr. Wiggles, a few months ago. Before he died, he started having trouble swimming, like something was wrong with his swim bladder. I put him in his cup so he could reach the surface, but a day later, he died. I got a new fish, Mel, and today I noticed...
