Oh my gosh what a tiny little thing. I hate going to petco and seeing the baby bettas. "Watch your betta grow up!" what they really mean is "Take our bad advise and kill this fish for us because we have too many!" Ugh. It makes me so mad.

hey is she eating? I would try aquarium salt and stress coat and if you have IAL if you have them. Always rinse ial before you use them.
I never had sand in my tanks so i don't know how you change the water with sand, but for tank that small you need to do daily water changes or at least every other day. Not sure how often and how much you change water on your other rescued but when you do 100% water changes you need to acclimate your betta to new water temperature/chemistry.
For your little one i would think aquarium salt can help . 1tsp/gall pre mix in one gall jug make sure it dissolved and do daily water changes for 10 days.
I just saw post when someone did it for her rescue and it works pretty amazing.

Thanks everyone!

She has not eaten yet. Well she has tried the bloodstone and spit them out. She tried a pellet but couldn't get it past her mouth. I tried chrusing it up and it looked like she maybe got one tiny bit, but I'm not sure.

Unfortunately, I don't have any IAL.

I might just try the salt, thank you!

Oh and I have sand in all 6 of my tanks, (now 7) well except for one actually, that has plant substrate. I actually find it a lot easier to clean as the ickies sit right on top. Plus, I figured that sand would be a lot more comfortable for her to lay on.

Thank you for all of your comments/suggestions! I really appreciate and need them!

good luck, let us know how she doing. Sorry one more tip that you probably know :)
Remove uneaten food so it don't sink to the bottom that will contaminate the water

OMG, I have never seen a betta that small before unless it was in someone's breeding logs. She is just a tiny little thing. I really hate petco for having babies. I thought I would have enough on my plate just wanting to rescue all the sick fish now I want to take all the babies with me too but I just don't have the tanks for it right now...however 4 empty shelves are taunting me and they might all get filled with rescued fish.
