Tofu, Tuna and Taco, LOL. Now I'm hungry.

Poor fishies... :s

cute names, though. :D

That is HORRIBLE!!!! UGH! I always have a fear that people will do that, because the betta section is typically unsupervised. Good for you to save them.......seriously!

I wish them the best of luck, and please update as they improve. Also, what do you do to heal that type of damage? Just warm water and aquarium salt? I'd like to know for future reference, in case I ever come across a betta like this. Thanks. :)

Ohhh my goodness... I just can't believe that.. Good for you buying them! (:
I feel so sorry for the second one, even though they both don't look too good... :/

That's awful. I'm glad you found them and I bet they are too. I don't know what's wrong with people. Even when I was a kid I had empathy for animals pain. You did a nice thing. :)

Thanks guys.

For care, I doubled the dose of stress coat, according to the bottle, and added some aquarium salt to the water. Hopefully those things can help them recover. I feel so bad for them, but especially Taco, the one who is so bad off.

I'm sure it was some stupid kids... this has happened at my local walmart before, my friend told me..

I hope they make it!! Taco is probably just really stressed out. IMO, he should be fine. :) Try covering his tank with a dark cloth to keep him calm.

I don't know why but I think you should name them Yin and Yang... it means opposites which they are... And the fact that they both survived is a miracle so... I really think this would be a great pair of names..
