Here are some more pics!

He was caught partly in shadow in the first pic, but it shows how much his fins are getting metallic! It was super obvious this morning how shiny his fins are now. It also shows up in the other two pics, but the light didn't catch the color as well.

Day 13







Look at that cool bubble nest!

Haha I took pics in to my LFS this afternoon and it seemed like the betta lady was relieved that she picked the right person to send him home with. When she first saw me she asked if he was still alive, so I had to show off pics of how well he is doing.

Thank you! He has so much energy that he does laps in his 1gal hospital tank. I think it might be time here pretty soon to upgrade him to a larger tank since he is doing so well.

Photo Update: Day 24

I haven't had much news about this guy, other than giving him time to grow his fins in. He eats like a beast and is a speed demon, but those are amazing characteristics for him. It took forever to get these semi-decent shots (4!) out of 100 something photos... all the others are half blurred since he was rocketing around his tank so much.

I had moved him to a slightly larger tank for recovery, but I definitely think it is time for a tank with more horizontal swimming space. Maybe that'll be his christmas present.
