I went to Petsmart today to buy some dog food and Prime water conditioner, and well, per usual I coulden't resist looking at the bettas. There were only 4 left, 1 female, and 3 males. 2 of the males looked OK, and the female looked kinda bad, but there was one little male who stole my heart. He was laying at the bottom of his cup, which was very dirty and yucky, taking HUGE gasping breaths. He really coulden't swim too well, he was so exhaused, so I had to drain a bit of the water out to help him breathe. I have been planning a rescue for a while, and I am very excited to announce this lucky boy to be my very first one! :)
I also met a really cool employee who was into fish too, on a somewhat related note.
ANYWAYS! He is a red CT, my first CT, and he continues on my 'red streak'. All of the fish in my household are reds, as of right now! :P I just really like them! :D I wanted to name him Tacos, but alas my mother convinced me to alter his name to: *drumroll please* Wahoo's Fish Tacos
! Yes, he is named after the taco place, so it is resereved/copyrighted blah blah blah. <--- Just don't want to get sued, so you can call him Wahoo or Fish or Taco or Tacos. Like I do! :P
He has been in his 1g 1/2 filled hospital tank for about 2 hours now, with little improvement. He will stay in this tank until he is rested and I am confident he will be able to swim to the surface of a 5g. (His future home)
So without furter adue- Photos!!!! (They are all of him in his cup, except for the last one, which he looks disfigured in, since he is in a glass bowl.) Oh, and he is starting to swim a little in it!!!
