Thalo's Story

He's pretty active, I hope to get his fins back into good condition and then give him away to someone here on the forum. He's small, probably 3-4 months, looks like a veiltail. Check back for updates!

Oh goodness, the poor boy! That's some crazy fin rot he's got going! I love seeing when people rescue fish like this, it warms my heart :)

And yes, I think he's also a VT, that's a nice deep color on him :)

hey, thanks! I'm hoping the discoloration on his tail isn't the "mystery disease".

He was labeled veiltail on his lid and HMPK on his bowl.

I really don't have the room for another permanent betta tank so this one can find a new home I hope.

Oh yeah, that disease >< It might be, but it just looks like it's under light. I was under the impression that it would look like that all the time? Maybe I'm wrong though, I'd watch it just to make sure though.

Day 4 pics, I think he's looking better! I think the blacker more discolored parts broke off.
