Thanks for the good news! Muffin (yes, I WILL get pics up
) has actually become really beautiful. The scales on his body have turned darker, so his whole body is a dark red, and his fins have started to develop these metallic blue streaks :p
I have no idea if he is a half-moon or a veil-tale (beauty or the beast? LOL), and I will put pics up soon. He doesn't have that veil-tale droop, but I can't imagine him being a half-moon... I mean, he was a petstore betta.
He's started flaring at me, and now he does things like swimming around and building bubble-nests. Here's something I made....
When he was at the petstore: Scooted around bottom of tank, struggled to surface to breath, tried to survive the Angelfish nips!!
When I got him: Scooted around bottom and occasionally rested at top, easier trips to the surface, started eating more and getting fatter
Now (10 days after I got him): Swimming around more than scooting at the bottom, easily comes to the surface, eats like a pig, started eating pellets and loves them,fins healing, flares at me without a mirror, doesn't get freaked when I do a water-change, color developing beutifully, getting fatter...
Thanks so much to everyone who helped me with him... I don't really need your help anymore, but I'll keep you posted on Muffin! Pictures to come soon!!~!
