Unfortunately at my college's Fall formal, they were giving away betta fish in those small glass bowls as center pieces on the tables. Not only does this promote horrible fish keeping practices (The bowls are WAYYY too small for a betta), but several people were dumping the bettas into a bowl with others to either take JUST the bowl or to take more than one fish. I just don't know what is wrong with people.... One of my friends came to me with a betta she found in a bowl with another one. The poor thing was beat up to quite an extent. Almost his entire dorsal fin has been ripped off, he has injuries to his left gill, and his tail is fairly shredded. Of course, I took pity on the poor creature and he came home with me. My friend went around and rescued a bunch of other bettas off tables where they were going to be thrown away. I was able to place a couple with responsible people while I tried to explain to a bunch of others why it is wrong to keep bettas in such small containers. Most people replied by saying "They sell bettas on the boardwalk in small containers, so these should be fine". Anyways, I changed out the water in a bowl I was able to scrounge up off one of the tables. Until I can get something larger, he will have to make due in this. I added a few drops of melafix and some water conditioner and he's starting to perk up quite a bit. Hopefully he will make it through the night, but is there anything else I can do for him? Will his fins grow back? He was quite a beautiful fish before the incident, so I'm hoping he will heal up nicely. Not really sure what I will do with the little guy. I don't really want a third betta fish, as my other two already take up enough room on my desk in their 2.5 gallon tanks!
