New rescues

I saw these two in petsmart. Most of their fish looked pretty good, except these two. Sadly, the crown tail didn't survive the night, but the delta tail is doing very well this morning. He's active and he noshed down three pellets.
Crowntail with yellow female in qt below him, checking it out.

Delta tail with some fin rot issues.

Acclimating while watching the mentalist lol.

Delta tail last night in new hospital critter keeper.

this morning. (I have him floating in a heated tank)

I thought he would be the one to not make it, out of the two, but he's doing great so far. Sip little Crowntail. I'm sorry I couldn't save you too:(

Sip little crowntail :(
At least he had good last few moments with you!

The delta colored up nicely! I love those little blue rays in there, once he's fixed up he'll definitely be a good lookin' betta!

I know! He didn't have any blue on him last night. Amazing. The poor ct was worse than he looked in the pix :(. I acclimated him over several hours but maybe it was too much of a change for him, or maybe he was just too far gone.

-hug- we can't save them all, but you've done your best. He had clean/warm water and a loving home for a little while, and that's what counts.

and that delta is WOW!
