My rescue named Egg.
I'm going to go ahead and post my rescued boy here. I brought him home this past Thursday, the 28th, so he hasn't been with me long. He is doing much, much better than when I brought him home.
Egg was in the worst condition of all the bettas at the pet store. He just laid at the bottom of his cup, breathing hard. His water was filthy and had brown and white stuff floating in it. His eyes are what sealed the deal for me. He just kept watching me and following me with his red/blue eyes. It was like he was begging me to help him.
After he was released in his tank, it took awhile for him to perk up. He was very pale when I brought him home and he swam funny at first. He is getting more color and is much stronger. He is still skittish and hides from me, but I know he is eating when I'm not looking. I can't wait to see his full personality once he gets used to his home and me!
I love this contest. Everyone has wonderful stories and the pictures are amazing! Good luck everyone!
