My little Admiral (rescue)

He was a rescue betta more than anything... And he is SO under weight
I promised OFL pictures so she'd be able to see him better (sorry for terrible picture quality)

first and second picture is the usual way he looks, the third is how he is when he turns slow or fast (not as graceful, or gliding as any other betta I have, but more in an awkward "L") The next pictures are sideways, the best I could get of him. (he doesn't like the camera lol)

And yes he is in a bowl.... Because it was easier to get a picture without him swimming away on me -.- he refuses to fight the net, a cup, a bowl, or anything. Doesn't flare, and though he has eaten a couple days now, it's equal to two flakes and maybe a small dried bloodworm if anything. I also noticed the weird shape on the side of his tail (see picture one and three)

My poor little guy is maybe 6 months, about 1.25 inches, and paper thin body other than his head :o

and no, the three first pictures he is not in a bowl. He is in a small glass cup... which just shows his sad size -.-

Yeah, he really is small. I usually go for bettas with color and spunk, but he lacked both -.- but I felt bad for him so yeah

I have never seen such a pathetic looking fish. He just looks starved. Worse than I think I have ever seen. If fish had butts, I would say he doesn't have one. His rear end looks too small... I look forward to seeing him after your good care! Please keep us updated!

So small... Though I usually don't agree with the exact words "rescue", this is exactly that, with as bad as he looks.... It's good that he's eating at least. After a week, I'd expect a lot of improvement, but if not by then, I'd say add another week. You never know... he might end up being pretty colorful and spunky once he gets back to tip-top shape.

Edit: I got Uncle because he had the most ugliest (yes... most ugliest lol, bad grammer shows how badly) and most serious-faced fish I have ever seen. But he was healthy... and him turning out to be a vibrant ugly and a spaztic spaz, he was way worth the impulse. I'm so strange, lol

Oh my goodness, I hope he survives with you! I have never seen such a skinny betta before! Good thing they are not picky eaters! Glad he found a good home with you.

Hahaha you got an ugly vibrant spaz? now THATS worth it xD

And greentea, I haven't had a betta die on me yet for strange problems :o I think I have had bettas jump from their bowls/tanks and still live >< right now my female is in with my male. He's trying to nudge her to the bubble nest lol

Good luck making him better!! Bit of heat might encourage him to eat perhaps? I think a bit of TLC will help him come around. My sister had an emo fish for weeks but eventually came around! :) Fingers crossed for Admiral!
