I gotta say I'm very inspired by what you do! You're making a difference in the lives of Bettas one at a time, and ensuring that they are getting forever homes too!

Once I'm more confident in my Betta healing skills, I'd love to try and rescue some too. Someone needs to!

Well Oz was shipped out to his forever home on Tuesday and arrived safe and sound yesterday!! Which I am so so happy about, shipping fish always gives me a minor panic attack! In 8 years of shipping I've only had 2 DOA's but I still get nervous every single time I drop a fish off at that post office, and I swear I don't breathe right until I get word that they arrived safely!

Boomer will hopefully be going to his forever home this weekend, I have to say I'm going to miss him very much, he's made some of the fastest and most dramatic progress of any rescue I've ever had!

Here's one last before and after shot of him!


The girls tank had a minor outbreak of Ick, but they are fine now, my fault I wasn't being careful about the amount of fish I was adding and I think I added to many too fast and they all got a little bit stressed out!

We have a new addition to the rescue, an adorable little boy that I have named Charlie (after my favorite character in Lost lol) He was found at Petsmart suffering from fin rot and extreme emaciation, he was just skin and bones, the poor little man! He's already doing so so much better, he's eating, he's already put on weight, he's flaring at lemon in the tank next door and he's gained a lot of color! He's going to be one beautiful fish when he's all better!

When I got him on Tuesday (4/2)


Late last night (4/4)

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

You do a really great job with your fish! And lost! Lost! The first four seasons are good, then it gets weird. I was sad Charlie died.

What do you usually do for them? Clean water and food?

Shhhh! I just started watching it on Netflix, I'm just finishing up season one! Haha!! But I already knew charlie died eventually because I looked on IMDB to see how many episodes everyone was in because I don't like surprises! Haha

Clean, warm water (between 78 and 82 degrees F) and good high quality food (Such as Atisons or NLS) I will medicate if I need to, but I would say about 80% of the time these guys turn around once they have the clean warm water and good food

Oh, so sorry. Someone ruined his death for me to. I am watching it on Netflix as well. It's awful, addicting, and evil... Especially when the next episode automatically plays in 20 seconds.

My daughter is looking over my shoulder as I go through this thread & sees Chrlie here and says he's a dull betta, so I showed her the pic you posted of him now on FB today. Big change, he's looking great. If I wasn't beyond full I would gladly give this handsome guy a home. I'm still watching here and on FB, so when I can give one of your resuces a home I can let you know.

Little Boomer will hopefully be meeting his forever mom on Thursday and going home with her!

I picked up a new rescue today, every body say hello to Charlie! He is severely emaciated and has rot on all fins! But he's already perking up!


Dream Bettas: Pure white HM or VT (for my daughter), new 'spikey' fish (CT for my son), blue & orange betta male (for my fiance), and more live plants (for my bettas )
