SO hello again everyone! I of course (after my big mystery disease scare) decided that I would adopt only healthy bettas (since I was planning on only buying females I haven't really looked at any males). Well I've broken that rule...
Today at walmart I went to go check on everyone. Thankfully there were only a few but I of course saw this guy with a HUGE open wound on his side. It looks like he was put in with another beta and then left to die. I managed to get his price down to 2.50 (I think they sell them for 7.60 or something) and now he's sitting in his cup in my 2.5 gallon tank. After my huge scare with the two girls I got from petland I decided I would ask you guys about him before I put him into my 2.5 gallon tank. I know that a betta will not heal properly if he has any serious disease. I just wanted to know exactly how to handle him before I put my girl in danger!
Here are some pictures that I managed to take: (P.S. I think that the fluffy stuff is just him trying to heal his body) Also I never found another betta that he could have fought with so I have nothing to back up my betta fight story
BUT A NOTE: To possibly back up my story, he is in a crown tail cup but he looks like a veil tail to me? And there were two bettas that were put in a 0.5 with a divider and the cups were gone.
