Smile Who are your rescues?

I know there are a lot of people who rescue on here, so please share your rescues and how you got them! I always love hearing the stories as I'm sure many of you do too. :)

Xander (rescued one week ago) -LPS didn't clean the water, ammonia poisoning.


Finn (R.I.P) -Walmart employee dumped him in a community tank. Died of multiple diseases and bites.


Albus (rescued three weeks ago) -owner kept him in half empty .5 gallon container and didn't want him because he was 'boring'.


Azul - Sick and mistreated at LPS for being deformed/ugly


Neville - Abusive owner who got bored of him.

Perseus- neglected at a LPS.
Permanent curled fins, but I find him beautiful.
He had ick and finrot. Disgusting white things (presumably ick) was floating around in his water.

When I got him:

Now:


Gonna be looking for a lovely person to adopt Perseus soon :)

Solus- not that much of a rescue. Was in the store for over a month, and had some minor finrot. Don't have any pictures of when I first got him but I have lots of pictures OF HIM :D








Going to be looking for a new home for Solus too :)

Finally, my most recent betta rescue.
This betta is going to be my foreverbetta so I'm really spending time and gonna need help for thinking of a name.
He was in a LPS for around 1-2 weeks, his dorsal was pretty much gone, had some minor finrot and holes in his fins.
I absolutely love this betta. Extremely gentle and great with tankmates. Always tries to curl up in my hand when I'm feeding my ADFs.

This is my rescue. Took him from my little cousin. He was in opaque algae-green water. Doing well, just anxiously awaiting fin regrowth so he can be prettier.

20g tank: 4 neolamprologus multifasciatus + babies
4g: Nick - doubletail male
75g: harlequin rasbora, peacock gudgeon, green cory, red rainbowfish
