Wink 2nd attempt at a rescue Betta, wish me luck!

I found this Male Crown Tail Betta at Wal Mart. He is so much smaller than the other Male Bettas at the store. He has little color that is so pale and sits on the bottom of his cup. His water was dirty and there was uneaten food on the bottom. From the top he looks really thin from above. I felt so bad for him so I rescued him. The last time I rescued a betta was in August of this year on my Birthday. Her name was Summer and she only lived like a week :(

I named my new rescue Drake. He still wont eat much. I hope for the best!

He looks like he will be a gorgeous little boy. Even how his color is now he is pretty :) I'm sure you will do a great job with him.

For a Walmart betta, he looks pretty good!

I was at my local Walmart last night and out of the 12 betta cups there, only 4 fish were alive and all 4 looked like they were very ill. So sad.

Glad you saved this guy!

Smile Update on Drake :)

Here is a picture of Drake today in his 1 Gallon Tank. When he get's a bit better I will move him to a 5 Gallon. He is changing color a little bit already. He still spits his food out, so I am going to try a different brand of pellets for him.

The 1st picture Drake looks scared and he stays near the bottom alot. 2nd Picture looks like he is saying "Thank you for rescuing me!" And thank you for saying Drake looks good already.

Keep a look out for more updates sometime after Thanksgiving. By the way, Have a Great Thanksgiving!

Aw what a dear. Congrats!
Maybe try frozen bloodworms or for pellets, mix up some garlic in water and soak the pellets.
