HELP!!!!!! How do I care for chewed up betta? Ok, this is my first betta rescue. I went to Walmart, and happened(no kidding! this was totally my sister's idea!) to stop by the fish section. I noticed that there was this BEAUTIFUL orange betta in the black skirt tetra tank! And there were about 40 BSTs in a 5 gal. tank! The poor little guy had his almost his whole under fin chewed off!!! :;fru I just HAD to rescue the poor little guy. The fish lady said that his little bowl had cracked, so she had to put him in a big tank. Right now, he's in a 1 gal. bowl on my dresser. I don't have any other tank to put him in other than the breeder's net in the 29 gal. He's under my desk lamp, which gets pretty hot, to give him a little heat. I put some stress zyme in the water, but other than that I don't know what to do. He seems to be ok, he's swimming around and he ate 4 freeze dried blood worms. Any other suggestions? His fins and tail are pretty torn up. I know to change the water every day, but other than that? Thanks guys!
