I know!!! He's so freakin' cute! Thank you for the photo compliment. He was giving a red glare in his eyes for some reason, so it was hard to get one that wasn't showing glare. I WAS floating him, but the cup toppled over continuously so I just gave up. He's resting on part of the tank near the top and I turned off the filter since he's so weak right now.

Maybe Oliver wants a new scarf, Laki?
Sakura, I had to lock him in the room for an hour or so. In the meantime, I opened Bunny's pen but she didn't come out. Oliver was driving me mental, and I was trying to write a paper. He kept jumping on Bunny's condo for negative attention. idek. Needed some quiet alone time from him. He gets some new scarves in May at the pet expo. :)

Got some tape? I've found that I can secure a floating cup to the corner of a tank with two pieces of tape.

Yea, he's such a cutie. He's one of those fish that I just want to quit everything I'm doing and watch adamantly until he's better. I said that if I nursed him back to health, then I'd give him to the LFS/sell him. I really am not sure if I can do that....I'm growing attached...I don't want to set myself up for failure, though. I've had a string of bad luck as of late. I really hope that it doesn't rub off onto this little guy.

You are a great fish keeper! He will be fine. And if you don't end up keeping him, there are tons of great people on this forum who might take him!

Do you have a link to the story, Bekah? I just suck at seeing animals suffer. I just want a magical world where they're all healthy. Its why I don't allow myself to go to this one Petsmart near my college. I walked in there once and saw all of the bettas in terrible condition. I literally started crying in the store, so I had to leave. :/
