My first rescue! Banana!

So, I went to the pet store today and returned the four cories (I almost cried, I swear).

And so i went off, looking through the bettas. All were veiltail except for one plakat, but he was very disinterested. Then I figured, why not rescue one? I wasn't going to pay for him, techincally. So I got this guy, who has been on the shelf for 3 weeks already and hasb't looked so good.

So, he's now in my family and will be QT until he can join Bubs in the 10 gallon :)
From what I know, he's easily still growing or he's stunted.

Here's a blurry pic of him acclimating

What happened to the cories?

He looks pretty clamped but I'm sure he will warm up in no time!

I'm only going to use the 5 and 10 gallon for when I go home, so I figured that it'd be easier to put all my bettas in the 10 gallon :)

Here's a picture of Jingles and Banana
They're both lined up, so there's no problem with perspective

Just fed him 3 Omega one pellets and he looks bloated already lol
He's swimming around.

I tried to see him flaring by using the mirror and all he did was flap his gills once, and then they went back down and he swam away.
