You need to get him; otherwise you will not sleep at night until he is safe in your home.

He's home!! He's doing ok, in the 1/2 gal for now. Petsmart has the same 5.5 gal starter kit my other fish has on sale, so ill probably pick that up tomorrow. He seems to be fine, but when I got there he was a little worse off than when I first saw him...they all were. They must have been a new shipment a couple days ago when I was there. He didn't seem to be swimming as well as the others though the clerk assured me he was fine, and he flared when I put him up to another fish. I got him to eat a frozen bloodworm before, though he didn't go for it until I closed the lid. His body seems a little bent, but I imagine that's from circling a little cup and he'll stretch out in a day or two. I can't wait to get him in his bigger home and watch him thrive! :D

And yes, hubby was annoyed ;)

Glad we are not a drug support group! Or a food addiction group! Do it! Get him! LOL. So now since we can't, we can live vicariously through you to do it!

Congratulations on OUR new fish. Lol!!

He looks like a Captain Hook. He has that "I'll get you Peter Pan!" look on his face in that top left picture.

Arggggg. A fine name for a fine fish. He's going to amaze you with how pretty he is once he gets perked up!

Thanks! Captain Hook it is, it stuck. Before I went back for him I was thinking he was 'Sebastian', but once I got him home I wasn't sold, but cap'n seems to fit. He's doing great, eating fine and swimming around like a boss. :D but holy crap, he's a big boy!! He's about 3x the size of our 12ish week old baby, and I thought that's why he seemed so big but I was in petsmart earlier buying him a tank and he's way bigger than their bettas. Either they have small guys or he's a behemoth!
