I explained it was so I can observe him eating and to be sure he is not going to kick off as soon as I get him home from hidden problems
the more I talk with them I find they don't really have any ideas on what to do for salt water fish so if I do get this betta it will be the last I purchase from them ..
Eeek! A place that sells marine fish and doesn't see the reasoning for QT... Scary stuff. I don't blame you for looking elsewhere. Hope he's in good shape!

It's water change day for my betta tanks, so I'm going to do my best to get it done despite what feels like a pulled muscle in my left arm. I'll be sure to grab some extra towels just in case it decides it can't hold a bucket up at a bad time.

I'd mention the name but I don't think I want to bash the store they just started salt so they just need to learn a little
got to see my fish today to find out it's covered in ick and wouldn't eat
think I may just hold out till I find me a nice healthy 2-3 inch marine betta
I am just bummed I want one so........ bad
it's not often I drop almost a C Note on a fish
so I want a nice one thats healthy

Give her 3 or 4 weeks tops, she'll hold again they are young & frisky! strip this time if you can! You may find some fry darting thru your rock work tho! You'd be amazed at they're will to survive!

I've been busy.. I've had three discus sitting in qt for 2 weeks *SURPRISE* I finally took everyone's advice and got Trooper friends. Hopefully 2weeks will be enough time because tonight I put them in his tank and have been "sweating it" ever since. Also started my planted bowl, did water changes on all my tanks except the brackish (ill get to it tomorrow) scrubbed the 20 gal and set it up (no fish yet) found a 33 gal I'm going to pick up tomorrow for my son to have free reign with. Spent too much time watching the 80 hoping everyone will get along well. (I'm still sitting in front of it) I'll probably end up switching things up in there tomorrow and I still have to "tweak" the 20 because I'm not happy with it.

In our hobby, one cant sit in front of a tank for too long.
