---Uh, me too. You inspired me enough that I took home this little dude. He's not as bad as your guy was BUT he has been there for a very long time because I remember him. I don't know if he has fin rot or he is a tail biter but I hope a new home helps either way. (In Petco his tail looks shimmery green but in different light at home it looks purple. Either way he's got a chunk missing and a red spot on one side of his head .. don't know what it is but he is acting ok.)

So Candice, look . . you made us give two more little bettas a home. :) You sort of started a "Pay it forward" type of thing. Or "pass it on" might be more accurate.

It looks like he might still have a touch of the fin rot on his tail in the first picture of day 4 near the bottom there to me. Maybe it's just the lighting in the picture? He does look worlds better then the first pictures though, and so quickly.

When I saw the first pictures I was wondering if he had a crooked spine or if he just got sick enough waiting to be sold he developed the bend. Since he straitened out I guess that answered my question. :)

He sure seems to be fascinated with that thermometer!!! That's too cute! :D

@ Teeny- I'm sorry to hear your story about your dog. :( I think it's a cursed name.. It's like some cursed movie and TV roles... I know it sounds superstitious, just when I saw the name being contemplated I didn't want the poor little guy to pull through only to have something extremely awful happen to him later on.

Hi Twilight, I did look at the picture and then ran to his tank. He could still have a slight case of fin rot but when I look at him in bright light it isn't as dark as it is in the picture. So maybe a little bit of a shadow.

I also thought he had a crooked spine or was deformed. But I am glad to see his back is straight He is doing better and better every day, and soon he will have fins :) I cannot wait! You all are amazing to me!

Mursey, how exciting for you to take on a little Betta in need. Your words made me tear up a little and it warms my heart that just one little thread could start a new day of saving Betta's from horrible conditions. I know from here on out this will be a lifetime project for me and I will love doing it. I am so happy that we all can come together and help the fish we all love and have somebody to talk to and relate too. I sure hope you start a thread so I can see the little guy you are helping.

Again thanks for those kind words, you all mean more than you know so thank you!

poor guy, reminds me of my first rescue, he had fin rot and was so severely underweight and weak he had to spend his first few days in only a inch of water in a large Tupperware container floating in my big tank :(

To start off, thank you for also rescuing. :) But together, you and I gave 3 little guys a home! Isn't it awesome?
