I hope my pictures uploaded correctly this is my first post ever!
But this is Sammy, I rescued him from a lazy owner who kept him in a very small tank (cube shapes about 6inches by 6 inches by 6 inches) and horribly murkey water that hasn't been changed in about 4 months, and ****ty mardigraw beads and fake rhinestones as decorations.
This first picture was taken the day the previous owner brought him home from the pet stores, I'm going to post current pictures in a reply!
I've had him in a new bigger nearly 2 gallon bowl for about a week now, I'm fairly new to betta keeping, and don't know if he has fin rot?!? Any help would be appreciated!
