I am so inspired, Smog looked show quality compared to these sweethearts when I declared him mine. Now I know exactly what to do with Hotirubi's tank when I move her to her new one, I am rescuing another. And another, and another. The husband will understand.
I am planning on rescuing more and dividing my 6.6 in half so I have more room.

You all are such wonderful people, I was so inspired by Heart Breakers recovery that I have taken on a few more rescues. 2 of them passed and I have one VT that is recovering slowly but will definitely make it. I have not posted pictures because I wanted to make sure he made it first. I posted one a couple weeks ago that didn't make it and I felt so bad about it. You all who rescue are so special keep up the good work.

I'm sorry about the 2 rescues that you lost. Good luck with the other one.

:I i'd enter, but my one rescue didn't make it, and my current adoptions are rescues that i didn't rescue myself.

also, imo. true rescues are their own prize. seeing a betta go from something that might not make it, to a beautiful, happy, healthy betta is reward enough.

Thanks again for all the wonderful stories. This is just a "final call" that the contest is nearing the end... Only those posted by Aug 31st will be judged, so if you have a story to share, or know of someone who does, please point them this way.

Good luck to all the contestants!

I can't wait to see who wins. We have a lot of good rescue stories but everyone is a winner for taking a fish who needed help and helping them to reach their full potential and beauty.

Hi, I just wanted to update:
This is crazy, but The Maestro is almost healed. :) Who knew the power of TLC ? I have no clue what his mystery illness is and soon-to-be was (whether is was a tumor, cyst, fatty liver disease). The Maestro and I want to thank all of you for your kind words and powerful stories. It really helped us get through it. :) Thank you!
