Indeed, keeping the tank stable and the water clean is one of the biggest things for betta. They can tough it through the worst, but it does take a toll on them and shorten their lives. One of the reasons I got a youngster. I almost got an adult cobalt blue veiltail(he was the bluest betta I've ever seen in my life! Dark blue with a black head), but half his tail was gone. Sure, it will fix, I got betta like that before. Usually get fixer-uppers, but I wanted a young and healthy baby for once. lol It's kinda...it grates on your heart after a while of rescuing. Rescues rarely live more than another year or two, being already a year or two old when you get them if they're purchased as adults. Some live longer if they weren't too trashed growing up.
Ah, photos...I will take some now, but you likely wont see them for a while unless I can get permission to upload from my grandpa. He's kinda a stickler for making the silliest rules and hasn't let me upload...I'm going to sneak next time I catch his area still on, he doesn't log off. >>; Usually I don't, but my camera is full, and I really do want to show everyone my new baby. =) Had friends asking me about my rescue pleco who is now perfect too.
Pick well for that betta, Liverpool! Be sure you have meds in your cupboard just in case too. =)
