Exclamation HELP! I just rescued this little guy...

I am new to the Betta world and got my first one about 2 weeks ago. I was in a VERY shady petstore today and rescued this little guy. I did not want another betta, but he was in the most disgusting cup I have ever seen. Feces, uneatten food, the cup was dented like it had been dropped, and cloudy gunk floating all around him in about an inch of water. He is barely over an inch long. Does anyone know how old he is? Color? Type of betta? Does he seem healthy? He looks very different from my large veil-tail. So little! His 2.5G tank, heater, etc. is getting set up as we speak, pictures taken from a temporary bowl.

WOW. His color is stunning! As for the type, I'm not sure. I'm still new to the betta world. He does look a little like my delta tail, but I'm not absolutely sure.

I'm so glad you rescued him! He's quite the gem!

When I saw his face, I went "Awwwww!" He's very cute, love his color!

His dorsal fin is HUGE- think he's got some doubletail in him. Does he flare for you, and if so, does his caudal (back) fin spread to 180 degrees? If so he's a HM... I'm not great with tail-types and it's a bit hard to identify in these pics. He might be a super-delta by the looks of it, too... And kudos to you for rescuing him!

Wow! He is a beauty! His fins seem pretty good considering the conditions he was in. :)

Wow, that is a monster dorsal fin. He almost looks like a doubletail with that crazy top fin but then his tail doesn't really look that way. I just looks like he bit it and it's growing back. He's BEAUTIFUL and all in all he looks pretty good. I love his coloring.

He is so pretty! But is that a chunk out of his tail or is he a DBT?

He's definitely not a DBT. That chunk in his caudal isn't how the lobes should seperate... just looks like some fin damage.
