What a cute face he has. :)
He has been in AQ salt for 5 days so I think he will finish healing in perfect timing! He has been eating very well and he is active today I put him beside one of my females and he flared at her! :) In so happy with his progress :')

Haha, it's a pretty common misconception that freeze-dried isn't nutritious. Actually, they are very nutritious and have all the vitamins of frozen foods. It's just that some people believe overfeeding freeze-dried can cause bloating. I don't know if that's true or not, though.

Do you give him pellets in addition to the bloodworms? I'm just asking because while bettas LOVE freeze-dried bloodworms, they're not very nutritious (I compare them to potato chips) and he needs the protein he can get from New Life Spectrum or Omega One Betta Buffet pellets :)
No have only fed him bloodworms but I will change that! Thanks for the tip! I have the pellets I feed my other bettas and also tropical medley:)

Frozen bloodworms are also excellent, if you can stand them. I feed mine with tweezers. All the protein he can get is great and a varied diet is good too. You're doing a great job, tunkis. :)

Oh I am so relieved for you!

I am glad I saw this after he'd recovered so much bc otherwise I would've been too scared!

You are doing a great job with him!
