This is what happens when you work at petsmart... 4 new rescues!

So at work today I was looking through the new betta fish and I saw a female who looked like she had body rot, most of her anal fin and part of her under side is missing. So I asked my manager if I could adopt her. My manager looked at her and said that I could and asked me if I would also like to adopt the other three sick betta fish that were in the back. I couldn't say no so now I have not one but four new rescues.

I'll give you guys more info when they're home and settled in

that's amazing for you to do that! are you planning on returning them after they're healed, or keeping them? i'd get too attached.

No I'll be keeping them and then adopting them out when they are healthy again.


Here is a little more info on them now that they are settled in.

First is Bay, she is missing most of her anal fin and part of her under side, she looks like she had some nasty fin/body rot at some point, but she's active and happy so we'll see how she does.





Next is Solo, he is quite skinny and his fins are clamped and "sticky". He was flat out on his side earlier but now he's sitting upright on his log, I think he's going to come back and be ok.





Then we have Toby, he is super skinny, he sort of spins when he tries to swim, I'm worried that he isn't going to make it through the night.




And last we have Emmett. He has fin rot and swim bladder issues, I've been treating him at work for awhile, when he came in there were chunks of fin sitting at the bottom of his cup, I'm so happy to finally have him home where I can really take care of him!

He made it through the night, so that is a good sign, hopefully I will be able to get him to eat something yummy today!
