Talking Sluggles then and now

So around Xmas time my boyfriend insisted that I try and save this pathetic blue CT that looked like it was about to die. He never had an interest in my fish saving before so whenever he points one out, it comes home with me.

So I bring this poor thing home, thinking its gonna die overnight...OR that the 5000 mile car trip out of Alaska will kill him if he somehow managed to survive the night...

He was lying on his side, rapid gill movement, rapid mouth movement. huge chunks of blue fins floating all over his cup, his top fin was almost gone. His Ammonia level was off the chart, literally



well, he survived the night and after a few days I moved him out of his cup and onto about an inch or so of water...he still couldnt swim too well





Then it came time to Leave Alaska. Out of 23 bettas, TWO survived and Sluggles was one of them! The other was a red CT named Mr Magic Mushroom.

Not only did he survive the trip, but he can now swim normally

omg so sorry D: "but this guy fight, he'll fight through not all could, he could fight the impossible in bad conditions, even though most lost are sad, be glad that your survivor could fight to live, not even to live to exist. being in a place that was careless about him, he dared himself he could make it, and he did" he is adorable :3

This may be a little off and i am very sorry about your fish.. but im trying to figure out whats wrong with my two betta fish... the color in both of them is off... and im just confused on how to fix it.. it is dangerous if there color is faded? (one is red but is also faded like white and the other is blue and fading brown) i know its not right because ive seen them both without the fading but idk what to do to help them.. i dont want my fish to be sick and not do anything to help them..
