New Rescue Betta!!

2 fridays ago at work I noticed that this guy was fuzzy. It looked like columnaris so I brought him in back and treated him the best I could with aquarium salt, stresscoat and maracyn. I didn't hold out much hope for him though, close to 50% of his body was fuzzy. I didn't work again until*Tuesday. When I checked on him on Tuesday (not expecting him to be alive) I found a fish who was fuzz free and eating again!! Unfortunately the infection must have hit his tail tge the hardest because about 75% of his tail fell off. Other wise he is healthy except for being underweight. I adopted him last tThursday from work and brought him home! Now he just needs a name!

I think he is adorable. And lucky. I'm not good with names. Oliver came to mind. What tail type is he?

I'm terrible with names, but he's lucky to have you!

Poor little guy.

Can't wait to see what he looks like when he's all healed up!

Verry lucky fish :)

He looks like a aurora ( like the aurora borealis) to me.
