So. I went to Petco today to grab a few more aquatic plants, and was absolutely horrified! Every single Betta had dirty water, and several were actually dead / decomposing. I was disgusted. I found this little guy and decided I had to get him out of there. When I mentioned the dirty water conditions to the lady at checkout, she said "Well it's not Thursday, so it hasn't been cleaned yet." I mean seriously, in those little cups how could they only clean them once/twice a week?
Anyways, here's my new little guy in his cup while he was acclimating to the tank. You can see the disgusting water quality.
And here's him stretching out a bit after the acclimation.
I'm still trying to come up with a name for him, so if anyone has any suggestions let me know!
