I am new to this forum as well as to the betta world by adopting Spiderman from a friend that was moving out of state. I have had some goldfish in the past but nothing too needy. So I got the 2 gallon tank w/ a pump and a light, some Betta pellet food, and a net. That is all he's been being cared for with since he was purchased (I want to say in August, but will have to check on that).
I just took some pictures of my little guy, Spiderman, trying to get a good one of his left side -- he decided to swim in the opposite direction the entire time lol! I have a posting in the Bettas forum that expresses my concerns in more detail--"I've been killing my fish and didn't know it until now..." and will try to get better pics of his left side so that someone may be able to tell me what is wrong with him--besides all the things I just found out that were wrong as off last night...it almost looks like he's peeling alittle, got in a scrap (but he's alone with a coral-like castle and some gravel and pebbles), or maybe cut himself--I don't know though. So I will try some more until I get one clear enough to view what I'm speaking of.
My name is Christine and I love all animals, reptials, fish--all living creatures for that matter!!! I have a 16 yr old cat named Spunky that is adjusting to living with her new brother and sister, Bambam and Pebbles-which are
siblings about 6 yrs or so that like to play together. Spunky likes to play alone :) but has always had an interest in fish. She and Spiderman hung out the other day and I actually think the time was enjoyed by both of them :) Bambam likes to hang out with him too :)
I look forward to any and all advice about caring for Mr. Spiderman.
Thank you for reading my posting
