I was in Petsmart (mistake #1) looking at the bettas (mistake #2) when I stumbled across this guy buried in the back. He was labled as a halfmoon
I pointed out to them that he was was veiltail, and that he was sick and would die on the shelf if I didn't get him... So they sold him to me for $0.99.
His water in the cup was clear, not blue like the water in the bettas cups at petsmart, which makes me think he's been there a long time, long enough for all of the blue to fade, and he's obviously never had a water change, the cup was filthy!
He's so stressed out I have no idea what color he's going to end up being when he's all better. And he's so skinny and beaten up, poor guy :(
I'll post pictures as soon as I have his new tank set up!
