SO-
A coworker of mine asked me if I'd take her betta, since she knew she wasn't taking good care of it. Apparently her grandma bought it for her for her HS graduation, and she really didn't want it. She doesn't want to take it to college either. So me being the crazy fish lady, naturally.... I couldn't say no. lol EVEN THOUGH she asked me the DAY I brought home my salamander HMPK "Twitch"...
He's here, in a gallon bowl that she brought. I don't think she was using conditioner in the water, so his gills are a little red, and his fins are curled a little, but other than that he seems pretty healthy. He perked right up after having conditioner put in the water and getting a few hours of rest in the dark. Not much of a flare-monster but he will if you stick a mirror in front of him.
He's no Petsmart dragon, but here are a few pics of the boy.


He got his "go away" bars while I was taking pictures... lol

It's hard to say since he's in a bowl right now and that kind of distorts his size... But he's a tiny little thing, can't be more than 6 months old.

He's soo cute. Makes me want to adopt or Rescue another Betta, seeing as I have space for one more now since I just divided a newer big tank I just got. I'm sure he'll perk up more in no time. Are you planning on upgrading his tank size soon? I'm sure he'll love it if you could.

The boyfriend and I have decided on a name!

"Evans". I think it's cute. Because it sounds like what someone would call an under-appreciated assistant. So now we can yell "EVANS!" whenever something goes wrong. Just reminds me of Smithers. Almost named him that too. lol
