Yes, he's swimming around. Not as much as my other betta's but maybe my others are super active?! He's definetly responsive to my face peeking in on him. When he sees me he slowly swims over to my side of the tank.

It's been about 24 hrs. I'm not seeing much change today, but he's still alive! What do you guys think??

He looks like he's a little bloated. I'd fast him for a couple days. Is he pooping regularly? If he's moving around, that's a good thing. I hope he pulls through!

Well, approx 30 hrs after being taken from the Walmart nightmare, he couldn't hold on anymore.

I know Hindsight sucks, but I wonder if the better course of action would have been to have purchased the "aggressor" Betta and leave the weak behind? Maybe I could have at least saved the community fish that i'm sure also lost thier lives last night.
Lets hope my complaints to Walmart will actually make a difference and no Betta fanciers, any where, will ever have to intervene in this type of situation again?!

I can wish can't I?!

Thank you everyone for all your help, support and kind words.

RIP Buddy.
