Sadly Taro did the leap of death out of his tank while I was away and I was not able to save him :( My boyfriend kindly offered to buy me a new betta to cheer me up. We went to my LFS and I had a look at the few sad looking betta fish they had.
Then I saw this tiny, scrawny little guy... :) He was in a tank with some guppies and looked pretty battered. He is doing some scratching too, treated the water with salt and already had IAL in there so fingers crossed that he picks up! I have also closed up the gap in the back of the lid. Such a tiny gap it was >.> Pictures now:
