It's okay!

I'm getting him into his QT tank tonight, but he ate! Ignored the bloodworms, but took 3 NLS pellets.

Aww... that's why I am not allowed into pet stores by myself. I always want to save something lol. He looks so sad, but with some tlc he should be just fine. I am sending good vibes your way.

If he ate, that's a good sign. I'm sure clean, warm water will do wonders for him

Well, he made it through the night, but he's still hanging out at the top of the tank and he's not interested in food this morning. I'm hoping the lack of interest in a meal is more related to the big changes from yesterday than anything else.

I hate going into pet stores and seeing all the abuse they put Betta through. So far where I live PetLand is looked like the most caring place (which is where I got mine at), but they were still small containers and dirty water.

I love to see people give these little guys a fighting chance, but I caution not everyone to do it. Some of the stores find that people will buy the abused ones feeling sorry for them, which means they don't have to take care of them. Too much saving can cause more neglect. This is just my two cents.

I hope your little ones does get much better! And if he doesn't then at least you gave him a fighting chance! Keep us posted!!!

He ate! Got him to chomp down on NLS pellets again; I offered him a thawed bloodworm and had no interest, nor the shrimp, but he ate so I'm feeling hopeful.

Have you tried any stress reducing methods like indian almond leaves and such? I know there are other products that help.
