I need help, I saved the poorest looking betta!
I love bettas and have 4. My most recent one I got because it is in the poorest health. He has fin rot which I have treated with a salt bath. I think he has black spot. He is peach colored and has black spots on his face, his eyes and part of his beard are black, is this normal for his color? He also has a problem with one of his gills it seems slightly deformed, and the base of his tail is crooked and slightly bulged out to one side. He dose not seem to be in pain and after the salt bath is more active and he eats well. I want to give him the best life. And the lady at the fish store is so mean to people too. She told me I am a bad fish mom because I wont buy a $25.00 heating pad for my bettas. Her fish are not on heating pads and obviously sick!
