The bulge is really apparent since he's emaciated... :(
Unfortunately he is still dead looking as yesterday and will only move if I move his Qt.

Im hoping to see even more imprrovements tomorrow!

Poor guy looks stunned right out of his mind. :( I think you're doing the best things possible for him. If he's got a chance, it's definitely with you. IAL, salt, clean and warm water. Good luck Aokashi. I hope this fellow pulls through for you!

Thank you for everyone's support!
I hope this one pulls through too. I'm pretty good at not taking home random sick fish... but for some reason, I feel terrible if I dont take home a betta on the very verge of death.
I do hope he eats soon. I'm fearing that he will starve to death. He doesnt even give that mosquito larvae half a glance :(

I always worry when they turn away from food, especially live food. But you do a good thing, Aokashi. You give them the dignity of passing in a loving home and not rotting at the back of a shelf, only to be tossed in the trash with the hamster droppings.

Haha, you're right. I can't imagine Kuro turning away from food!
he's always ready for more.
If he could talk at feeding time, I swear he'd be singing this as he wiggles his butt,
"There be worms rainin' from the skies"~chomp

Have you tried keeping him in very dim lighting to allow him to rest without worrying about outside stimulation?

HOw wonderful for you to have taken him home.
i am wondering, does he have a heater ?? I would think he really needs warm water. Maybe I jsut couldn't see it in the video. Good luck.
