Meet Gimpy

My daughter and I sorta rescued this lil feller from the pet store today. The story I got was that someone dumped him into a tank of mollies and he was found this morning all beat up...she said he was beyond saving, but we decided to give it a try. The tank was originally set up for a dwarf gourami which is what we where going to get today, until we found this guy.

Awww, he did get beat up! But tails can regrow, and it looks like he has a nice place to rest and recuperate! Good luck!

I'm glad there are people out there that don't look for the most beautiful fish they see, but see the beauty in helping a Betta that needs it. Good luck, im sure he will come around in no time :)

He didn't make it. We figured out he had a spine injury on top of the missing fins.

I'm sorry to hear that - but you gave him a shot, which was wonderful of you to do. I guess not every story has a "and they lived happily ever after" ending, but at least his ended with "And I was taken to a home where people cared for me and tried to fix me."
