Lily Posted October 1, 2022 Share Posted October 1, 2022 Hello! My name is Lily, my friend just moved and out of nowhere left me his two Betta fish. A male and a female, both in a glass bowl without anything else. I have never had fish and do not know what to do, I am writing here looking for help. I realized the female was clearly being attacked by the male so after reading some web pages I moved her to another bowl and bought them some stuff for their bowls. It have been 4 days since my friend left them with me. Now, I am worried for their health, they do not look like the colorful and healthy Bettas in pictures. Can you please give me your thoughts? The female is the red one, I named her Lady, she have almost no fins. The male is the yellow one, I named him Boy, and his fins look weak. After moving them to different bowls both started acting normal and finally showed their personality, they are lovely fish and now I want to give them a nice life. (But again, I really don’t know how). I bought them some Catappa Indian Almond Leaves (I read it is good for their health) and I also bought API aquarium salt because I read it might help them heal… but I am scare of messing up, it sounds like there are many ways to do things wrong and they might die if you do not know what to do. Should I use the salt? How? Would it really help them? Or should I do something else, or anything at all? P.d: After reading more, in the last few days I have been preparing to get them a 5 gallon tank each, but I will do another post with that topic later, for now, please help me with the concern I wrote above. THANK YOU!! 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
