When i first got him he was pale and would sit on the bottom a lot. Now he's very active, swims around a lot. His back was slightly bent when i got him and that's almost completely gone and his tail looked gimpy and was folded at the top. You can still see how it folds but it's a lot better than it was. He had a lot of trouble swimming with the back and tail issues but he swims just fine now.

Wonderful recovery, I recently bought my DT butterfly, Alucard... Ive been having issues getting him to eat. He swims actively, but he eats sparsly, and is ALWAYS so thin.

I CONSTANTLY have to scoop out leftovers, and watch how much I feed him. He even turns down bloodworms sometimes.

Igor was exactly the same, hated everything i tried to feed him; the only thing i could get him to eat were flakes (the betta buffet kind). He snatches them and shakes them and has a really good time bless his heart.

I WISH Alucard would act like that about food. He just gets really mad when I hold my purple pen up to the tank. He has a huge meltdown like "ERRRmahhhgeeeerd! PURTLE!" And dances and flares at it.

I used to keep carter in an ingrates temp for a month. I did not see a difference in him except the times like now he is in a ten gallon or in a floating box.

My local petco generally seems to take poor care of its fish, but strangely the bettas are the exception... they're in cups but their water is always clean, the fish seem healthy, and they're displayed on special racks with dividers so they don't see each other.

My local petsmart generally seems to take superb care of its fish, but the bettas are the exception... they're dying and molding in cups with foul grey water full of poop, stacked next to each other on shelves so they see each other and stress themselves to death.

I can't imagine why anyone thinks they're going to make money presenting fish that way for sale.
