Smile Tesla: the journal of a recovering fish

Hey guys, I just got a new Betta today!

I named him Tesla, or "the scientist" after watching this video:

Anyway, I started a journal for his recovery after he did this at the store:



He's a VT.

Here's a photo after I got him home:



The hospital tank he'll go into when his heater's ready:




I'm sure he'll color up a lot once he's in the tank, I suspect he's a blue MG.

He's already coloring up, even though he's still floating in another fish's tank! Here are pics:

He's also eating like normal, takes him a minute to notice that there's food in his cup LOL, but he always gets the "zoomies" when I feed him. Love this guy.

Thank you!


He's doing well today, eating ravenously, as usual. :)

Colors are about the same, but will be introducing him to his tank tonight, as I've finished testing the heater.

I released Tesla into his KK today! He's spent most of his time exploring. He's also coloring up quite a bit, I'll probably post some pics tomorrow.

That's true. I still feel like it was my fault though... But he did look rather unhealthy at the store in the first place. I think I'm going to take a break on getting more Bettas, and just focus on my current ones. Maybe set up a 20 gallon long for them.
