Yeyyyyyy!!!!!!!! Little fishy is doing good!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLL!!!!!

Ahem... The fact that he eats his pellets is sign of overall health. He probably ignores the worms because he doesnt know what they are yet. Keep us posted on his progress please!

I am thinking abut moving AGAIN soon so until I do it or decide not to. . I can't really get more bettas. Makes me sad.
Honestly i wanted to live a life of wandering the world but we all are slaves to our family up to a degree no? You are so lucky to be able to do it often.

One of the bad things is that i will leave my betta and canaries back but my dad cares them as i do so it will be ok. I will miss them though.

Well, he made it through another night but he looks pretty rough this morning, very weak. And he doesn't want to eat again. Hopefully he'll perk up before I have to leave for work.

Have you tried feeding him any frozen brine shrimp? When I first got Boomerang she was barely eating. By day 5 of her rescue she was not eating at all. I got some frozen shrimp out but they were too big so I had to cut them up with a toothpick and I fed her very small pieces with a toothpick. Now, she is eating a lot and doing much better.

I m glad your little guy has lasted. I hope the best for you, I am a sucker for rescues. Also, try maybe flakes? I know its not the best but it may get him eating.

Clearly, it's the NLS pellets that he loves! :-p I tried the brine shrimp and no interest, no interest in bloodworms, nor mysis, etc. He ate a few pellets when I got home from work, and swam around while I changed a little of the water.

Also, my IALs came in and I immediately put some into the tank.

A photo from today--and please excuse the random cat hair. I try and try, but they get EVERYWHERE.

lol i get cat hair in my tanks too. he already looks a little better. im sure all he needs is time and clean water. at least he will eat the NLS nothing wrong with just eating those.

So once again, he won't eat but today, he seems very weak--he floats on the water and any filter action pushes him around. He doesn't want to carry his tail. Right now he's resting on the leaves of one of his silk plants.
