Update and a few pics from this morning.

Taco (the one in bad shape) is doing really well. He's swimming all around his little habitat, even came to the glass begging for food, and happily ate his breakfast. I am *so* glad to see good signs from him like that, it gives me hope that he'll actually survive.

Tuna is also doing good, though he wasn't in nearly as bad of shape, other than some ripped fins. He's been swimming all around his habitat too, and happily ate his breakfast this morning as well.

A few pics from this morning...

And a couple of Tuna...

They are going to be beautiful once they get all healed up. Taco's eyes just tell a story of sorrow. I just find him too amazingly beautiful to be in that state. I love his colors already.

Whoever did this deserves to be slapped around, and a few other things. There are some sick people out there.

I found two males in one cup the other day when I was checking out the fish and I got so mad. It is usually immature kids that do those things. I was in a hurry so all I could do was tell someone and he went back there right away and I had to leave. I wanted to go back and get them. :( It is good you were able to take these two in. Good luck with them.

glad to see they are on the mend. with extra clean water and salt they will be good as new in no time!

Good job to take them both home and not just seperate them at the store. This way they will be able to be comfortable and heal in real tanks rather than die in those stupid cups

Thanks everyone! I'm positive that had I not taken them, at the very least, Taco would be dead in the water (and probably Tuna soon after). Because they were hidden 3 rows back, at the very top. Not to mention it was late in the evening, so I doubt too many people would've been looking at betta's that night, nor too many people digging that far up and in the back. At least by the time a customer did find them, they would've been dead. Taco was looking very lethargic by the time I got him home, I was really worried that he wouldn't survive the night. But by today, he's thriving, so I am just thrilled.
