Rescued from a filthy cup at pet store...

I rescued this lil girl about an hour ago. The price tag on the cup she was in was dated 5/17/12 and thenlooks of the water looks it too. Here are a before and after pic. Once I got her in the tank she seems very alert and active. Im going to give her a couple more hours to settle in then feed her. I hope her appetite is ok. I wish I could afford something bigger than this 1g cube now but things are kinda tight right now so perhaps in a few weeks. At least she seems happy to be in something clean and a lil bigger

Awww! She's beautiful! She's got spots just like my girl, Cali :) Glad you saved her. I can't even imagine how she was still alive in that hideous green cup thing! They really are amazing little animals.

Does she have a name?

Oh my goodness. o__o I hope you made a fuss about that cup when you picked her up! I've seen some dirty cups, but thats just absolutely terrible! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite that dirty....

Shes a lovely little girl though, and looks to be in surprisingly good condition given the circumstances. xD What a tough little thing!

she's beautiful! i'm sincerely hoping that date was a birth date, not the day she arrived at the store. either way lucky find, i may be wrong but she looks like she might color up now that she's in a good home, i think i see the vestiges of some red marbling.
