What about if she's still in the healing process? I'll wait until the 1st to take my final picture and enter and all that, but she's got really torn fins. If they're not completely healed, does that take points away? I just got her. =P

Photo of my Finn anyways =D

Username: Otterfun
Fish Name: Finn
Type: Halfmoon
Sex: Male
Color: Turquoise Blue Iridescence Butterfly Dragon Scale



mine was zooming by when I took this. He was a Petco rescue, came with hole in the head, treated with Maracyn II + AQ Salt for 10 days, he's always been a fiesty boy, flaring all the time even when he had HITH. This is after he's healed of HITH

Thanks

okay. 8V i gots a great rescue. i adopted them, but it was my friend that physically rescued them. they were in a half gallon tank with stinky, gross, super dirty water, and it was either she saved them, or they got flushed. it was decided from the start that i'd take them in, but she held onto them while they healed up. i'm only entering Coop, since he's the one that went through the biggest change.

before:

and, the most recent photo i have of him after coming into my care:

This is Star. He was living in horrible conditions at Petsmart. There was a lot of debris floating around is his cup and it was so cloudy that you could barely see the fish. I told the lady in the fish dept that bettas cannot live in dirty water like this and she didn't care and said they would get their water changed next week. So I took two little guys home. The 2nd picture is him in his 3 gal bowl.

Renji was on the highest shelf in a small cramped bowl and he was the first and only fish i looked at. I thought about it walked around the store and then on impulse went back to where he was, and seeing his pale orange self i said why not maybe i can give him a better place to live. I brought him home with me placed him in a 1-gallon bowl and he wouldn't eat for about a week i got nervous starting looking up stuff. Turned out he had fin rot. So i went to petco got everything he needed, including a nice filtered 2.5 gal tank and in about 3 weeks he became this beautiful vibrant bright red betta that I'm honestly glad i saved.

For some reason im having issues uploading pictures so heres the link to my album. I have pictures from when i first got Renji in January and another more recent photo.

I'm planning on entering my Pericles, once he gets settled. That poor fellow was also rescued from Petsmart, lots of debris gathering in the water. Tiny cup, by the way. And he did not seem healthy at all. But, I still got him and it was a good decision, he is alive and kicking it and we are upgrading his tank Sunday!

This is Thor. I got him from petsmart the day my poor Mooney died. He had fin rot and is still recovering.

I either talk to my fish when I'm mad, or I'm mad because I talk to my fish.
