I know :( All they can do is give chums like us looks that make us spiral into guilt trips if we don't buy them.. Nature's gift to bettas: Guilt tripping :)

It works. It works all too well, doesn't it? I've taken so many betta guilt trips, I think I'm a frequent flier. I'm glad you got him though, he needs you.

Dont feed him too much. Give him a little food twice a day. He was starved and his guts wont be able to handle the same amount of food as a regular cared for fish. I know it sounds mean, but it works the same for people and any other animal. You have to work him back slowly. Too much too fast can do him more harm than good. Good luck I hope he gets healthy soon.

Yes, yes, Betta Det is absolutely right. That's what I did with Scooter when he was so skinny. Little and often. Except even though he's fat now, Scooter still expects to be fed every four hours and is disappointed that it's been cut back to three times a day.

Yup, that's what I'm doing.. It's like here are 2 tiny bloodworms, see you in 4 hours! Lol! The first day I fed him only once just to get his system going, then yesterday 3 times, today I'm going for 4...

They all need me, I want them all!! T-T

We'll start an international foundation, get famous people to do telethons and donate loads of money.
