New Petco Betta :)

Hey fishy peeps! Well, I just couldn't resist "The look" that I got from a young "delta tail" male. He was an unexpected but not unintended purchase. I already had a 2.5g set up, I was just waiting for a fish to jump out at me and was also trying to find decor for the tank I like.(I'm picky lol)

But as it turns out the fish struck first haha... So using what I had already at home, I fashioned him a tank...

He looks like he has some finrot, so I also bought AQ Salt. I was wondering if I should wait a day or so to add it, or just put it in today? Thanks

I'm not sure what color he is, he was stressed at the store but as far as I could tell he's black or chocolate. I'll update after he settles in, but I'm curious to see how he colors up :)

I'm waiting to name him for a couple different reasons but I'm probably going to ask for help with that lol but here is a few pics...
In his cup in store...

And his new home...

He's very pretty! Can't wait to see what he colors up too!

I bet he's super pumped to live in an awesome home like that.

Thanks :D I got him in there and I don't think he knew what to do. He just kinda looked around with his lil face like "Whoa, I can swim more than an inch in front of me!"

So I got a couple pics, I know I should go to the diseases section but, does it look like he has velvet? Or is this natural color? He's not lethargic, he's curious but still shy but that's to be expected... Any help appreciated! Thanks

A little update, he's doing good. He built a pretty nice bubble nest over night :)
I decided to do the salt today just to help with his fins and any other problems he may have. He's very inquisitive but still shy. Getting more brave though! He ate a bloodworm for me so that's awesome

Here's his bubble nest..
