Thanks. I love stories like mine too. I have seen so many on here and when I saw her at petco I just knew what I had to do. I can't wait to see her all better. She is already feeling better too. More of her red is starting to show and she is swimming a little more. I am going to take pics everyday to see the difference. I will post updates pics later.

Omg poor thing!
What's sad is that NOBODY would buy a betta that looked like that, she would've died at the store! :(
So awesome of you to rescue her! :') I'm sure with the warm water and food she will be healthy and colorful in no time! (:

Here are some day 2 pictures...











She is so skinny and colorless that my camera has a hard time focusing in on her so the picture quality isn't all that great. You can see in the pictures that her body is drooping behind her. She still has a little bend to her body but already getting much better. She is really swimming around a lot better too. She even flared at me so I was able to see more of her red color. I can't wait to see her healthy and colorful!

Thank you everybody for the warm comments. Normally I would look at a fish like her and just put her back and get a healthy looking one but for some reason she really captured my heart. I think it was from reading all the rescue stories on here. I just figured that if I do what everybody has been doing and just put her down that she would not make it much longer. I am happy I rescued her though, she is a little sweety!

Thank you, she is actually looking much better already. Yesterday she looked like she was near death and right now she is looking great. In the picture with the white cup behind her you can really she her red and even now I as type this she is even more red. She is such an awesome little lady.

She had a little bit of flakes yesterday and about 3 frozen brine shrimp. Today she has just had some flakes. I use BettaMin Tropical Medley.

Okay cool, it's nice that you're giving her some frozen foods as well as flakes. I try and feed my boys different stuff all the time, I have about 8 different types of flak and pellet foods as well as a few different freeze dried and frozen ones as well. Whenever any of them get sick i try and make sure to feed them mostly frozen as it seems they always get healthier faster.
