New Betta Rescue

I had an impulse buy when I went to pick up some fish food at Petco for my angelfish and picked this little guy up, a sickly blue (maybe piebald?) butterfly halfmoon. He had some ammonia burns and I'm not sure if it's his coloration or if he has some missing scales on his back but I'm taking care of him in a critter cage for now.











And also my other desk tank, a 36 gallon grow out/community with lots of baby angels.

I think that is just his coloring. I have one that looks almost just like that; he just has more patches on him.

The plant actually used to cover about half of the tank but I got rid of most of it because I just couldn't see the fish at all, haha.

I've been looking closely at the betta's back and it looks like scales are missing on the white spots and it looks more like a wound than a difference in coloration. I'm gonna see what some clean water and good food does for it.
