This is Squirt about a week after we rescued him from Walmart. His sticker on his cup said he had been there since December 8, and we bought him on January 4 and he was the last one and he had swim bladder -- in dirty water. I have no doubt he would have died had we not saved him. These aren't the best pictures but as friendly as he is, he hates getting his picture taken. :/ And you all will be happy to know that he is still doing fantastic and he is all better and eating again!!! His name is Squirt because his body is about half an inch if that. And his a BEAUTIFUL crowntail!!! His body is pinkish and his fins are blood red and his head looks marbled at times!! He is just adorable!

I love this thread! Walmart bettas break my heart and it is so good to see so many folks rescuing them. And wow, do they turn out beautiful!!!

Here is my little Thelma Lou.I don't have an "at first" picture of her unfortunately, this is a recent one. I first saw her at Walmart on a shopping trip sometime before Thanksgiving. I kept going back to visit her after that. She was trying so hard to keep her spirits up ~ even though her little cup was getting filthier and filther..She was like the little fish dept. "Walmart Greeter" ~ always friendly and interested in whoever walked by.

After about three weeks of that, I decided I had to have her. I promised her on a Thursday that if she could make it until Saturday she'd have a home. Then I went home, and begged my husband to give me the tank I knew I was getting for Christmas, right now!!! Well after some tears and a few vague threats on my part ~ he agreed . We got the tank set up in a hurry and home she came! She was actually in pretty good shape, considering, just a bit of fin rot and very thin.

Here's to wishing on a star that all those neglected Walmart bettas get good homes.....

It could just be his tail, I know Gallifrey's is like that. I think they're just a shorter tailed variation of the VT. I've learned to love it. Besides, it gives him an advantage over regular VT's since without as much finnage he's a better swimmer.
