    Hello OFL. I went to Petsmart yesterday.. And I saw these HUGE VTs and one had something weird. His pectorals were like veils, too. Did breeders do this? It literally look liked its veils.. Have you ever heard of this?

    Might try craigslist, online pet shops like Dr Foster and Smith and lots of others...
    Ifs its a standard shape tank-most pet shops sell them.

    Hello OFL. I need help finding a hood for a 20 Long tank. I really like those black hoods that can have a light fixture in it. Help, please? Thank you.

    That's sad... :/ I'll test my water as soon as I come home. I'm not leaving for a few hours still. ~LTB

    Birth defects related to genetic are not uncommon-or deformities related to husbandry at the fish farm. You can also have damage from injuries and/or poor water quality that result in scar tissue.
    When you get your test kit-be sure and do a full test on your source water-both with and without the normal additives you use. This will help tell you if anything is in your source water and if additives cause skewed readings.

    Oh, really.... OK, then I'm getting the kit today as you know. I also have another question. (I'm a pain aren't I? -_-) Can a Betta be born with a defective gill or labyrinth? Remember the yawns I told you about? And Lebron gasps as well. But he's still active and all those good signs... Once I test, I'll see where I am in the cycle and if there's an ammonia problem. I hope not... I really don't want Lebron to suffer because of all the conditions I don't know about. :( ~LTB

    Neat, having the test kit and learning about your water is always a good thing...

    You don't always see the bloom-sometimes you can have higher levels of dissolved oxygen in the water usually from an aerator on the faucet itself that can cause bacteria to be easily seen in the water column
