    Default oi almost killed a betta last night at work

    Yes my parents let me bring him home.
    I'm not feeling to good so my hands are a little shaky, I was looking at the bettas and my hand apparently knocked a cup it went flying across the floor, the plastic shattered and the fish went flopping around.
    In front of two customers.
    I scooped him up panicing, grabbed the cup and placed him in it not realizing there were gigantic holes in it (even though I knew it was cracked) and filled it with enough water to cover him while grabbing a new cup.
    At this point I realize that there is a hole as big as the betta in the bottom of this cup and all his water leaked out.
    I throw him in the new cup.
    And realize he has a gash on his head.

    He was in the wrong place at the wrong time when the plastic broke and it scraped his head up :/




    He's still alive thank jeebus and this morning has been chasing the bubbles on his aerator.

    He will be alright, as long as you take good care of him and take him out of the little cup he will heal nicely.

    Yes, he should be alright...

    ...does your fish store use the blue medicated water? If so I'd be tempted to keep him in that to prevent a fungal infection...

    ...I'm hurt that you think I was stupid enough to leave him in the cup, that was only for pictures.
    He's currently got 2 gallons all to himself.

    And no we don't use the blue water, I don't work at petsmart.

    ...just a suggestion to prevent fungus from forming...in my experience the bettas seem a bit more prone to fungal infections than other small tropicals...
