Newest Betta Rescue

First betta rescue :)
Well atleast this LPS had some java fern in his water
But the poor guy seems to have either bitten his tail, or his tail is so damaged it's never growing back :( but for now he seems pretty happy in his new 1 gal.
Substrate is large particle sand from the local creek topped with a little gravel.

$7. I'm in Australia, so he was relatively non overpriced :/ I've seen them sell for $10, $15 or $20 so far...
With that money in the US I can get some pretty decent betta >D
But I still love veiltails, they've been all that I've ever owned and I guess I've grown attached to Vts :)

I've been coming back to this LFS every day for a week and a half now, and this poor guy was the only one left with another scrawy looking grey fellow. I've always wanted a red, so the red one it was.

These pictures are lovely! What kind of camera did you use to take them? I'm always struggling to get a good shot...

AWH! He reminds me of my Sid, the one red veiltail in the whole store, languishing with terrible fins.. Looks like ammonia's done its job on this poor fellow, I can see those tell-tale pinholes.

I think I can see a little regrowth on his anal fin? I bet his fins come back with lots of clean water and good food.

I used my iphone, Takes a while to get the focus. You do need enoguh light too, if there isnt enough it ends up being grainy like some of mine.


@Aus, Ammonnia creates pin holes? Thanks, didn't know that...and goodness he looks like everyone's betta. I wasn't completely ready yet for this rescue, but I got my 25w adjustable heater off ebay for $5. thought it will cook the fish but when I tested it in a half gallon it held the water temp dead steady. So I couldn't wait to introduce a new abused betta into a warmer roomier home.
