Things have been looking up for my little fishy friend. I've been feeding him/her 3 times a day, keeping the tank nice and warm, and making sure the water is lovely and clean. I did an ammonia test, and checked pH, nitrate, and nitrite levels, and everything was perfect!
This week something exciting happened. I noticed that sometimes it looked like his stripes were fading or gone, and today look what I finally captured!
I also got this shot of his belly, to see if anyone can tell me if he is in fact a he, since you are supposed to be able to see some type of egg sac thing.
On a sadder front, I went back to petco to buy some things I needed for the little fish and I found that at least 25% of the baby betta's on the shelf were dead. I'm very glad I got this one when I did! It's awful how poorly they are treated. The manager told me they are only fed and have their water cleaned once a week! I feed mine 3 times a day, with water changes every few days!
