Rescued 2 More!!

Hiyaa people of Bettafish.com :)

Went to petsmart today to pick up supplies for my new 5 gallon tank (which pictures will be posted of shortly) and i walked by the bettas... one of my many mistakes today:p i fell in love with a small pale colored female (who is yet to be named) and a metallic blue/ grayish halfmoon male (who is also yet to be named, and i am not quite sure if he is a half moon or not. he's still quite small though, barely an inch in length).

The female is so sweet. she's so lovable and cute! she comes up to the glass and just stares like shes waiting for you to do something. But as usual, the bettas were in horrible condition. She was in a cup full of filth! poor things gills were probably on fire! and the HM male was barely moving. and when he flares, it looks as if his fins have been bit :( so tell me what you guys think! :) also, dont be afraid to throw some name choices my way! but let me know if you know the breed of the female (cause i have no idea! lol) and let me know if you think the male is a half moon or not! andd what you think is wrong with his fins and how to fix it! thanks :)


The female :)




The new Male :)


his fins :(

Smile Congrats

Bless u :D
I got two girls from petsmart today too :D
do they put blue in the water to try and hide how dirty it is?
like a toilet?
Ew.
One of my girls is still on her side, but i think she'll be okay. I have had saltwater fish before that looked far worse when i first put them in their new home and they 'snapped' out of it. She is tiny in size too. I don't know what breeds yours or mine are :D
Congrats on your new rescue fishies

@roadplug - thank you! and yes my little girl, who i decided to name Majesty, was in a cup that was literally royal blue. you could barely see thru it! and OH MY! that color pattern on the picture of her is beautiful! congrats on yours too! :) it's good to kno we can all give these little guys a second chance.

@Leeniex - thank you! :) and your welcome! theyre already starting to show improvement! i just have to stop by the petstore to get some AQ salt sometime this week to help heal his fins!


and i think i came to the conclusion that Majesty is either a Veil FM or a Delta FM :D

Thumbs up

I totally didn't mean to, but i went back to petsmart today and got another boy and another girl - I can't help it! Then i went to petco and found two crowntail girls [which is what i was looking for] they are looking very healthy so far i think.
I got more and bigger homes with all the accommodations for them too. My hubbies gonna give me one of those looks if i can't hide what i spent, just today from him LOLzzz.
are you're latest rescues doing well?
