I went away for college and my brother agreed to take care of my fish while I was gone. Well he didn't. All my fish died except for Alpha, my super delta betta. My poor Alpha looks so awful! I don't have any balanced tanks because everything dief and the ammonia was through the roof! So I put him in an uncycled 5 gallon now with some prime coat and have been observing him over the past few days and he has perked up a lot more now. He is swimming around a lot more and there doesn't seem to be much wrong with him aside from the duller colours and the tail. I can even see some of his tail is looking better than the first day I got back and his stress stripes are gone. His metallic blue colour is a lot more prominant now. I was thinking of adding some betta leaves to the tank. Any tips on how to get this little guy as happy as possible after a few months of neglect?
