Don't you just hate it when you see Betta's in those small cups. When i first got mine Bruce he was in a small tank and he is now in a 10 gallon community tank and he rules over it and loves it. Glad Valentino has found a good home with you
Thanks! Yes, it's very sad. The cups were really dirty too, I didn't test the ammonia level in his cup but it must've been pretty high

But he looks good and so pretty!
They are really intelligent
. Romeo loves people and always knows when it's feeding time. He also seems to have a crush on my friend and always shows off for her
. And Kiyoshi shakes his fins like a puppy when you give him attention. It's so cute.
The fuzzy stuff you're talking about is a fungal infection. Very easily treatable yet dangerous. I had a betta get it over the summer. He survived, but was left blind and died a few months later

I know! And really, that amount of space is unacceptable for any living being. Yes, in the wild they live in fairly small spaces, but not that small
