Oh trust me there are going to be complaints made, and i won't be shopping there again. Luckily there are 3 other petstores i can buy can food from plus i can get it online, they won't be getting my money again. When they took him away i was heartbroken, i thought i'd signed this fishes death warrant.

He's colouring up real nice, his mustache is now lipstick :)

I'm going to make him a thread in the betta photos section to track his changes but i'll post a few pics here.

See how his tails sort of bent down... not sure if this is a defect or if it'll straighten up once he's back to full health.

He's still in his cup acclimating, i'm doing it nice ad slow so i don't stress him out. Plus i measured the ammonia in his cup, it wasn't really high but it wasn't so low either. It feels like they took him into the back and maybe changed out some of his water before they put him back on the shelf. Who knows though.

Oh, and i melted my filers motor when i was cleaning it, it didn't like the boiled water apparently.

Heeeeheee his lips are really funny! His tail is turning pink too! I hope his back gets better too, he has this weird shuffle type of movement when he swims.

His tail might just be bent from being in the damn cup ... bad pet stores ... bad bad bad.

Like your story about what you went through to finally get him ... very determined Betta Lover you are

He looks like he will be just fine with you taking good care of him. Keep us posted.

Hopefully that's the reason. I mean he gets along fine with it so if it doesn't straighten out i don't think it'll bother him too much.

Thanks. I couldn't just leave him, he looked so pitiful. Well he spit out his pellets this morning but ate bloodworms instead, this little fish is quickly wrapping me around his little fin :)

I think it depends on place if they treat them. My petco treats fish as soon as possible. They have quarantine tanks.

Hmmm...looks like he prefers "treats"
