When a betta is half-dead, dying, sick, has mucky water, missing fins, eyes, etc. I consider that a betta rescue- though there are many other opinions.
For example, I got Marmaduke lying at the bottom of his cup in disgusting water, little bits of waste and excess food floating everywhere. He was half dead.
Then Spiri, who was also in the same conditions,
And Norm, who was living in 1-2 inches of green disgusting water.
Edit- Well, now that I think about it, even buying a healthy betta could be considered a rescue, if they`re in those tiny cups... they`re most likely going to die anyway.
