A couple months ago a betta at petland caught my eye, but I ended up taking home another one instead. I almost bought him several more times over the next few weeks, but always ended up taking home another betta that seemed to need me more. Then a few weeks ago, I was back in the store and saw him floating on his side in his cup. I thought he was dead and felt terrible that I hadnt bought him! But he was still alive and home with me he went that day. He improved rapidly, but then broke with ick. I treated that with help from this forum. And now he is doing great! He was labeled as a metallic dragon scale. I don't think he's either one. I named him Sage. PS is he a metallic dragon scale?
In his cup.
In QT tank, sad and clamped.
Feeling much better! Going into big tank soon.
