Crush(my first betta rescue!)

As some of you may already know from my post in the emergency section, i have rescued a severely sick betta today from the evil grasp of walmart. His name is crush because when we were walking out of walmart my mom stoppedmat at a soda machine and got two crushes instead of one! So because this event was lucky, i thought naming him after it would also give him some luck. So back to crush. Currently he is in a 5gal hospital tank(ik big) and im using epsom salts and stress coat with him. Crush is bloated, has swim bladder, and fin rot. His color is a dull gray. And you can even tell that he was once blue. Seeing him breaks my heart. So here is crush on day 1 of our journey to (hopefully) recovery, sorry the pic is sideways and his reflection is messing the view a little bit

Thank you all so much! Crush and i both really appreciate you all! He made it through the first night! However so far there has been no improvement with his bloat, but its still early in his treatment!
