One day I was at wal-mart  and I went to the fish food section,found a sick and dying yellow betta I couldn't resist the impulse to buy him and try to take care of him. Diablo is what I named him and together we went through popeye,cotton wool disease, now Diablo is a healthy betta with awesome finnage his favorite food during the treatment was and still is bloodworms. Now Diablo is part of my family along with a ct female and a blueish purplish betta male.

Welcome to the forum Unique. It is always nice to hear the stories of good-hearted people. Please share any experiences you have came across in our illness/sickness forum. Also have you ever considered joining the IBC (International Betta Congress)? It is an awesome organization for all betta enthusiast!

One does not simply own one betta fish.

:o Diablo Is Beautiful! Can't wait to hear on the other male
It's not the beauty of the betta, it's the connection to you.
