First rescue...

Someone listed a betta on Craigslist last week for free because the betta has fin rot and the person wanted someone to take it that knew how to heal him. I originally just emailed them instructions on how to take care of the fin rot but they had an issue with having to do every day water changes. Not being lazy but they had stiches on each hand that could not get wet. I figure there are ways around that but whatever. So I said I would take him and then rehome him once his tail recovers since I have plenty to deal with already. I think he is really pretty though so I may have to rehome one of my other ones. But that would be hard too so who knows.

Anyways I thought I would share a couple of pictures. I actually think he might have been tailbiting and formed very minor fin rot. In bright light it doesn't even necessary look like fin rot and he already has new growth forming but I have been treating him with aquarium salt just to be safe. I have had him since Saturday and he has a wonderful personality and very active. Without further rambling here he is...

Lol! Thanks! I appreciate the offer. I am pretty sure I can find him a good home. I am part of a local forum of fish lovers and I am sure one of them would take him. If not I may just keep him. Haha!
