The betta I'm determined to save!

Was in my LFS again today and saw this poor little thing :(
She was being kept in a tiny tank with a male. She was cowering in the corner looking dead. I went and told the lady there she was dead, when the lady tried to net her she started swimming around. I knew there and then I had to try and save her! The lady let me have her for free (tbh I was probably doing her a favour taking her!).
I'm gonna try my best to save her! She's so tiny and has literally no tail left. :(

I've named her mercy btw.

OMG, the poor thing

You are very kind to try and save her. I sincerely hope that she pulls through. But, even if she doesn't, at least you are making the end of her life a peaceful, safe one. Please keep us updated.

I love her name, very appropriate.
(I also have a female named Mercy; all my bettas have virtue names.)

Thanks! :) she seems like a feisty little thing, she can surprisingly swim fine with no tail! She just had a blood worm so I'm happy she has an appetite!
I'm keeping her in a 3 litre breeding box in my 20g live bearer tank until she (hopefully) heals up!

Yeah, me too! I'm glad I spotted her, atleast if she doesnt make it she'll be comfortable in a warm cycled tank on some Java moss rather than being eaten alive by what would appear to be a rather aggresive male!

Aw! Praying you can pull her through! She's a lucky girl to have you taking care of her.

Good for you saving her, she was probably scared to death! I sure hope she pulls though, keep us updated.

Thank you :)

She's beginning to look a bit better, she's lost the stress stripes!
I don't think her tails gonna grow back, she's managing to swim fine so even if it doesn't I reckon she'll get on ok!

She's very cute without a tail I think, I do hope the rest of them start healing and growing back.
