Betta Cups

My parents decided to save a betta today and wanted to test the water that was in the cup.
Here were the results

Can't even tell what the ammonia is because it got so dark.

No it wasnt, I wish i could've done it but it was too hard to actually get the water in the vial because of how little there was after I got those.

I always meant to test the water from my Bettas. Thanks for posting the results. How terrible.

That's all good and well and well done to your parents, but i can't help but feel that them buying the fish is going towards supporting Walmart or wherever selling them. I know one sold fish is not too relevant but i read about so many of these people rescuing/saving/buying bettas from these supermarkets, even then, in the grand scheme of things all the people who have rescued bettas on here probably is not relevant, but i guess it's just my way of looking at it.

Do you have any photos of the betta? It saddens me to know that because these supermarkets buy so many fish they usually get the nicest variations in, such a waste..

I must say, supermarkets would not get away with that in the UK.

If this is one of the stores that will test your water for you why don't you get a syringe and draw up 20ml of water or so for them to test while you are in the store.
