Phoenix on the mend!

Here's a pic of my betta Phoenix that I rescued from walmart almost 2 weeks ago. This is him the day I got him...



The next day when is fin started falling off. :(



About a week later in his empty hospital tank...



And updated pics from the other day...out of the hospital tank and in his new 5 gallon aquarium! Sorry for the bubbles!





In certain light you can see color coming in like a blue almost. I'll try to post a few new pics tonight when my camera is charged. He's doing so well. I hope he stays healthy now!

OMG! By the hospital pic I thought this was going to be a memorial. What a recovery. It shows the care you took and the hardiness of these little fighters!

There were a couple of days when I thought for sure he wasn't going to make it. He's proven me wrong every day. He's definitely a fighter. Here are a couple of pics from today. He refuses to stay still for me so these are all I got today lol.

Phoenix preparing to flare at me...



A blurry pic, but you can see the blue that's coming in on his fins...
