No problem, best of luck with your fish!

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

there's a recent thread floating around here that had the argrument of bettas having scales or not. then it seemed to simmer at the conclution of them not having scales so i checked out my own and i couldnt see any. then i researched it and found what they look like and how they flare out

Really? I never saw that thread. But yeah, they definitely have scales, you can see them! Plus there was a thread with a betta with like... A tumor or something, we actually never found out what it was. But the scales on the tumor looked insane. All stretched out, it was weird.

Bettas ( like Corys) are scaleless fish..that is why you have to be so careful with salt

Nooo bettas have scales!?

You can fully see the scales when you look at the fish. Plus those bettas with dropsy clearly had scales sticking up.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
