......how stressed my baby Casper was when I first got him. Even though a lot of betta people do not recommend getting the babies, I say WE MUST RESCUE!! Look at Casper's progress and he is simply thriving now!! I am so glad I rescued from Petco!
The top left pic is the first day I got him (January 2nd). No color at all and major stress stripes. The top right pic is about a week later. Better color, no stress, and even flaring at me. The bottom was taken today. I can't believe how dark he is getting, and growing so big. Looks as though he may turn out to be red/blue after all! It is hard to believe all of the pictures are the same fish!
