"Savy" New Rescue with severe fin rot! (Will be for adoption)

Well I went into petco looking for a charger, and I happened to look at their bettas just to be curious, all were in somewhat good health......until I seen him on the bottom shelf in the back.....

His name will be "Savy" short for Survivor :) He will be for adoption once I heal him up. He has no fins and a small case of the pop eye. He is a Veiltail male not sure on his color yet.




He has small orange spots on him, so I want to say hes a marble....

Actually looks like he might be a Delta or a HM!

I'd work on that case of pop-eye first, epsom salt works great for that

His fin rot doesn't look too bad so that would take precedence after the pop-eye is cured up

Good luck and I'm sure he'll be a great lookin' fish one he's cure up nicely!

Now see that's what I was thinking he doesn't really look like a veil tail but his ventrails are really long so we will see lol he will be a surprise :D

I gave him some last night and it's gone down and his fins look really good this morning! He is super active which is great :)

Thank you, I really hope once I get him healed up I will find the perfect home for him

The length of the ventral fins doesn't indicate tail type. Males in general have longer ventral fins than females do. So an HM, DeT, DT, CT, and VT could all have the same length of ventral fins regardless of their tail type, see?

Only reason why I think he isn't a HM is because I have 2 HM males and their fins are much shorter than savys but then he could just have long fins for a HM :) it would be such an awesome surprise if he was :)

HM's normally have very long fins. My avatar picture is of an HM. You probably have either HM girls or a HM plakat.

If they've got shorter fins they could just be younger.

Alternatively their lineage may include some plakat genes, making the fins shorter. If you look at my avatar pic of Rembrandt you see his fins are very long and they are longer now that he's grown up a little more too. HM's generally have lots of finnage just because of the way they are bred.

So I'm still leaning to HM for little Savy Besides, VT would still have that droop, the top of his tail wouldn't go straight up like that and he's got too many ray's. VT's only have 2 rays and I can see on his tail where it's already splitting into two rays and so they would split again a few more times. But we'll see when he regrows them
