What a difference um..1.5 days makes!

I can hardly wait to see how he's doing after a whole week!

This is the betta hubby picked when I dragged him out to the store Sunday evening and told him that since I was on betta buying probation, the kids and I had decided that he had to choose an occupant to be destined for the other half of the new divided tank.

And he picked this little guy, who obviously made big betta eyes at him and said he really needed to be taken home and given something better than a (quite) dirty cup. I'm considering him my anniversary present

Hubby has been helping feed him, cupping and decupping him, and checking on him. He's started to declamp a bit (I can see when he does that he has a rip in his tail and a hole in his anal (that's the lower one right?) fin. But he's really coloring up - I thought he was "cambodian" at time of purchase. Turns out, not really. He must have been feeling really terrible at the store

Thanks! I'm surprised with the degree of change in such a short time! Hoping also that by getting hubby a little more involved with this one, he'll understand better why I like bettas so much!

I can't wait to see a pic when he feels good enough to flare. Wonderful job, he must have been feeling really really bad to be so pale before you brought him home!
