New boy (rescue betta)

Found this boy at my local pet shop, and he was obviously not doing well. He just lay at the bottom of the tank, and did not move. Got him for half the price since the lady who worked there thought he would have died anyways. He didn't have a chance in the store.. So I took him home, and he keeps getting better. He's eating well, and is becoming more and more active. He has this hole in his head, so I'm not sure if I can get him healthy, but I will try my best. I'm absolutely in love with this little fellow! Colorwise he's exactly what I was looking for

What a sweetheart. I am sorry he is not doing well, but you will be surprised what a little love and warm water can do. Great job on a rescue.

There is something called hole in the head disease but I don't know much about it. I caused by a parasite - API general cure claims to be able to fix it. I don't know if they sell it in Norway though or what medication would be equilivant



General Cure™ Powder


Medications


Treats a wide variety of parasitic diseases including velvet, anchor worm, fish lice, hole-in-the-head disease (Hexamita spp. & Spironucleus spp.), gill & skin flukes (Dactylogyrus spp. & Gyrodactylus spp.). For use in both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. This medication will not color the aquarium water.

Wow, he's a great petstore find! I might just have to get another tank if I see any like him at my LPS XD

He's beautiful. Sounds like you're doing things right since you're seeing improvement. I'd Google the hole in the head & see what your options are.
