Wow, look at the color that started appearing after you got him home. In the pics of him in the cup... is that how much water he was in!?

I am so fortunate, or at least the local bettas are, that my local petco takes EXCELLENT care of their fish. i never find dirty water there, no matter how many bettas they have. the only thing i do find is the occasional fish that no one wants and it just gets sad and skinny. soon as i have room i will rescue one of those poor sad things - but at least they are in clean water and get fed. You did a wonderful thing rescuing that guy and he is showing his appreciation by coloring up and looking happy!

Ahh yes, Phoenix! That is a perfect name :) He is fantastic and I love him a lot. He sure looks so much better. I'm glad you got the discount on him, but even if you had to pay full price he is worth it.

Sadly, he was in less. I took this picture after I added a little bit of clean water to help acclimate him to his hospital tank. He definitely has darkened up quite a bit. I cannot wait to see his progress.

The 2 petcos and 1 petsmart in my area are usually really good at keeping the water clean. But lately the petco where I rescued this guy from has been neglecting the bettas. My dad even told the manager that they take better care of their dollar goldfish than they do their 10-20 dollar bettas. I already have way too many bettas, but I just could not let this poor little guy just rot away. I would have felt so bad.

I really love the name Phoenix too... he is really growing on me. He is looking a lot better already. I am actually surprised I even asked for the discount. I usually don't even bother, but the way this little guy was treated I just had to. I really did it just to bring some attention to their bettas.
