I'd love to send you some pics...took some of our new betta and our little girl "Mary". If I can figure out how to go about it I will send them right to you. Our two sick fellas, the ones I started to write about in a reply I posted to the "Do you have a betta" post..(had to scoot somewhere before I could finish it)...They are doing much better now. Simon is blowing happy little bubbles again and they are both swimming around flaring at each other. They had ick (I think) and also a bit of fin rot on Simon...he also showed signs of white fuzzy stuff about the 3rd day of treatment. I have been using aquarium salt, water conditioner, Ick Clear and Betta Fix on them. Also have them both under a lamp for warmth...keeping water at about 80. (I have been reading lots about bettas the past few weeks ! I just LOVE these little guys/gals :love:
My daughter is concerned about Simon, his gill looks funny..like one side is not lining up with the other when you look down from the top...hard to explain...I was wondering if he lost one of his gill covers or something.(read something about that somewhere) <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> But it doesn't seem to be troubling him at all...maybe a defect or something that I didn't notice when I purchased him.
We have all of them in thier own little worlds...though for now Simon is in a small 1-1 1/2 pint bowl until he gets better..didn't have anything else to put him in where he was by himself. He was sharing the 1 gallon rectangular tank with Mary (with a divider of course) till he got sick. Thankfully she seems not to have gotten what he has though. She is happily making goo goo eyes at Luke (now Joseph...pastel blue) who is right beside her.
I think I am going to like this forum...I have never joined a forum before. Thanks for providing one !!
