Went to my LPS and couldn't resist him. But, he looks like he might have a bacterial infection, he's bloated, and might possibly have popeye. Luckily even though he's heavily bloated he does not have SBD. He doesn't have clamped fins and he is fairly active for a Betta who was just in a cup, I get the feeling he'll be okay, but....
