Courage shows his colour!

Found this sad looking boy yesterday at the worst Petsmart in the city. I wasn't intending to go there but it was on the way home. I've named him Courage because that's what he needs ... just a little to help him recover.

I was so worried about this little guy ... he's afraid of everything. He freaks out at the slightest vibrations and is terrified of me. But I've given him a plant and am going to drop a bit of BWE in his hospital tank to make him even more secure. He coloured up from this:



To this:







I have a feeling he's got some post traumatic stress, for whatever reason .... you would too, if you were cooped up in a cold, filthy little cup for what seems like forever .... just keep him in your thoughts. I really want him to make it. Anyway, more updates as they happen. :)

Beautiful color! I've been looking for a green betta for my mom! I bet he will perk up in no time!

I'm happy to say that he's perked up quite nicely now - no swimming away, eating a few pellets that I offer. I think he was just cold. I really can't wait to see what Courage looks like in a few weeks :)

He looks like he'll be a real looker when he heals up, I hope he makes it. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the little fighter.

i had a gal like that, years back. she would stress out real bad unless her tank was covered on three sides by a black t-shirt. :V give that a shot, maybe it'll help him out.

He looks awesome! and its so great to see and chat with other people that care about animals as much as I do, even a little fish. I wish I could save all the suffering Bettas in the world :(
Anyways, keep us posted on his progress!
